             Are you tired of your parents not trusting you? Dr. Phil states that the convention defines a child as a person below the age of 18; unless the laws of a particular country set the legal age for adulthood younger. Teenager’s should be allowed to make their own decisions.

 

            Teenagers at age 14 already know how to take their own accountability. According to Dr. Phil, he states that “teenager’s will learn their own authority when they are left alone.” He also states that “a good way children learn how to be responsible at a young age is by letting teenagers make their own mistakes, so they can learn from it.” Teenagers learn how to make their own decisions at a young age, if you just let them try.

 

            Lowering the age to make one’s own decisions to 14 would be the only way to prepare these young people for a real successful future. Dr. Phil says that there are many way’s teenagers can have a better future. It all depends on what their childhood was like. A study by Dr. Phil shows that many parent’s want a better future for their child, but they have to know it’s all on them. Teenagers would be ready for the future, if the parent’s have a positive part in planning it.

 

            Some adults may argue that teenagers are still to little to work, to live by themselves, and to make their own decisions. They might say that the world is to big and dangerous for them right now. This is an understandable concern, however they are wrong because it can be dangerous in this big world, but the more mistakes they make, the more they learn from it and the more they learn how to make their own responsibilities.

 

            Teenagers should make their own decisions at the age of 14. Teenagers should sit down with their parent and have a talk with them. Tell them, “I am a responsible young adult. I deserve to make my own decisions. Please stop treating me like a kid. I am a young adult.” I think that teenagers at age 14 should make their own decisions. They do not deserve to be treated like a child!!!

I agree  with your opinion, because if kids have the opportunity to work in the summer at the age of 14 then they should be able to make their own decisions.
