When you consider that these Amish adolescents have had a forced restriction ... ... middle of paper ... ...Amish community- whether they resent it or not. The Amish culture is admirable because of their restraint and dedication to their belief. However, their neglect for their children’s actions during Rumspringa is increasing their exposure to damaging behaviors. The hands-off approach is presented as this tolerant attitude toward Rumspringa youth while they explore the sin-filled world. In reality, I think these parents are purposefully not providing these young adults with the education and advice that they need to ensure that they will fall victim to an unsatisfying life- full of shallow relationships, declining health, disappearing funds, and no purpose beyond the next party.
One of the themes which happens to be the biggest one is burning books because they conflict with each other and the ideas of society. The firemen don't fight fires, they start them when they find books. Recollections and thoughts, writings and teachings from the greatest minds in history go up in flames because the government doesn't want people to fill their heads with it and develop an individual intelligence. The government is afraid of the books because they stimulate people's minds to think for themselves and away from the main track that the general public was expected to follow. The government covered up the problems of the world that still wore on, like war, and didn't let the people see it or have it affect them.
They likewise deny students the chance to learn how to rationally make their own decisions and instead try to keep that control for themselves. Censorship is preventing intelligent, thoughtful teachers from pushing students to reach past what is just on the page. Whatever their motives may be, those who seek to repress the use of certain materials are doing more harm than good. Those who actively fight to censor, ban, or restrict the kinds of literature that can be taught in America's classrooms are convinced that anyone who truly believes pornography and obscenity are problems must be in favor of censorship. Kristol (1972) points out that students are being corrupted by books and that anyone who doubts this need only look at the lives of the teachers who oppose him to find adequate proof of the damage they do.

Everyone reads The Scarlet Letter” the teacher studders as an answer. Janie retorts with, “What makes it canon?” “People say that the book should be taught in schools. That is what makes it a respectable, canonical novel.” “Who are these people? Why do they decide?” This back-and-forth conversation between the teacher and her students keeps going until, finally, Mrs. Smith exclaims, “Read the first chapter and write your initial thoughts.” The hypothetical situation above occurs often in schools. Teachers are bombarded with students questioning their reading list, but some are unable to give proper reasons for emphasizing certain texts over others.

I feel that he shows the reader the truth of life, it has it’s ups and downs and will eventually end and sadly some end sooner than they should. I understand that the world doesn’t want its children to think like that which is why I believe that this book should be allowed only in high schools not middle school. I believe that a high school student can handle the emotions that are presented by Green better than the middle school student can. Also there is an inappropriate love scene that I don’t think middle school students are ready for. This novel is a great one to read and I feel as if teenagers are missing out because our society doesn’t want them to see that there are people their age suffering.
It is evident that today’s advertisements for teen clothing are neither healthy, nor ethical, to use as a way to attract teen consumers; however, companies are getting away with this behavior, because their effective and inappropriate advertisements are merely innuendos. The modern label placed on teens is said to be the primary contender for the cause of eating disorders, suicide, bullying, and depression. Fortunately, groups of teens are getting together to put an end to these unethical advertisements and the messages the ads give off to teens; because of their efforts, the amount of effect that advertisements have on teens now, may dramatically plummet sometime in the near future. In my opinion, it is crucial that us teens make a profound alteration to the way teen merchandise is advertised, which in turn will end the knavish behavior of clothing companies, and cease our judgmental society.

He stresses that denying teenagers access to a controversial book denies them a better future. They need books not only for their intellectual, emotional and moral growth but also for the hope that if today's children can become comfortable thinking for themselves, the future of the U.S. will be served.” (Gallo). This support for learning the unknown is exactly why those who are uncomfortable with change support censorship. Censorship shapes the mind, limits outside influence, and while yes, it helps in the developmental stage of life, there is no proof that censorship is beneficial once a person reaches high school age or older. If anything, This creates a natural tendency to seek out restricted materials, because teenagers thrive on
Although critics of the Harry Potter series are well intentioned in their ideas of banning this novel in schools, the actual banning of the novel is far more destructive. What these critics fail to recognize is that the reading of such an imaginative novel allows for children’s creativity to flourish, rather than allowing them to turn to negative forms of entertainment. The banning of certain novels in schools is extremely important in today’s society, but only when the novel is destructive to a child’s upbringing. In past history, such classics as Maya Angelou’s I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird, and J.D. Salinger’s Catcher In The Rye have been banned.
