Some countries are considering imposing curfews in which teenagers will not be allowed outdoors at night unless an adult accompanies them. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this policy?
In certain parts of the world, adolescents are not allowed to go outside at night without the supervision of an adult owing to the consideration of security. This essay follows the given statement as there are manifold reasons to substantiate it.
Compared to the bygone days, the crime rate is on the increase among teens. Most of the youngsters are in the clutches of the drug mafia and immoral activities of the lack of parent’s supervision. In some parts of the world, the government has taken some necessary actions to prevent the crime rate in youngsters. As a part of that, the night curfew has been implemented, and the ruling body has triumphed to reduce child abuse. Although the adolescents are aware of the insecure situation in the world, they are accompanied by their peer group as they might lead to sexual abuse or drug addiction. For instance, the recent survey conducted by the cosmopolitan magazine shares that the children consulting the psychologist are either addicted to drugs or victims of sexual embarrassment.
Furthermore, adolescents get involved in horrifying events like throwing people into pools for fun which can cause death if they do not know swimming. And these all activities happened during night time when there are no adults around them. On the other hand, if an adult accompanies teenagers, they are less likely to be approached by criminals. This protects them from many devils. Also, the parent or guardian who accompanies their children can keep a tab on their activities and warn them when they cross the limits.
In conclusion, this ‘curfew’ helps youngsters stay safe at home and keep away from criminals. Since teenagers are tender to understand what is right or wrong, they need the care and protection of an adult when they are in vulnerable circumstances. Ergo, I strongly believe that this ‘curfew’ is beneficial for the teens as protection.
