Are teenagers respected? Some may agree they are and some may not. However, the majority of teenagers will respond, that they don’t receive the respect they deserve. Most teens feel they are disrespected mainly by their parents, other adults and by the school boards in North America.
Many youth feel they are disrespected and neglected by their own parents. Most parents don’t respect their teenagers right to privacy. Teenagers have, for example, the right to hold private telephone conversations and expect their mail and diaries are not read. Most parents, due to suspicion, invade their son or daughter’s privacy and often teens feel they are disregarded. Parents shoul
d acknowledge the right of teenagers right to privacy and learn to trust and respect them. All these actions by the staff send thoughts of anger raging through their head, and make them feel not respected and trusted. Juveniles are always generalized into categories as soon as adults see them. First parents should learn to respect their children"tms right to privacy and adults, especially staff that works in stores should stop suspecting their future customers and finally the school boards should respect the students interest. The implementation of uniforms in many schools without the interest of students makes them feel their interests are not respected and ignored by education system. Many teens feel that the use of uniforms will stop identity, strife creativity, and unnecessarily burden the families who cannot afford it. All students think the education system should give respect to students interests and put an end to uniforms. A problem that surface due to the implementation of school uniforms is the suppression of the individual creativity and expression. Some times the staff watches you or follows you around because they think you"tmre going to steal something. This is unfair because not all teenagers are like that. Through out North America numerous school boards have been attempting to standardize the clothing that students wear. Many youth feel discriminated against and or not respect when they go into stores or malls. With only a quick look from most adults, teens are automatically seen as thieves and many other things. Teenagers, the future generation, should get the same respect as any other ordinary man gets.
