KIDS SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THE THINGS ADULTS CAN- Persuasive peice

 

Imagine a world where you couldn’t do what you wanted because of your age. A world where you were restricted from your will, where you have ideas but no one will listen. What if I told you that kids feel this way? We kids should be able to do the same thing adults can. We need a voice, and soon we won’t even be able to do things independently, because we aren’t being put up to real-life situations now. We kids are trapped in a dark cell that is our life, only capable of what adults tell us. Do you want us to be clueless and lost because of you?

Do you enjoy being restricted from your will? Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if your decisions were made for you? This is what you’re doing to your kids. Imagine living with the guilt of destroying a kid’s hopes and dreams with one word. “No.” This could happen. You could ruin someone’s life. Do you really want that? If you really love your kid, you will help them grow by giving them a say in their life. Telling them they can’t is not respecting them, no matter how much you say you do it because you love them. Your kids could have no friends because you said they had to be home by five, but everyone else stayed later. I bet you don’t get curfews from your parents! Just give your kids a chance!

Adults are always talking about how kids need to be more mature, well here’s the perfect chance! Giving them responsibilities will help them learn and be more independent. If you don’t let your kids walk to school until they’re 18, they will be scared! If you don’t let your kids pay for something at the checkout until they’re 17, they won’t know what to do. Being overprotective is not helping your kids at all. Don’t you want your kids to be mature?

Imagine you’re at the beach swimming, and start to drown. You can’t speak, but you can hear everyone else’s voices. You scream for help, but no one will listen. You would feel alone, scared and trapped. Have you ever realised that kids can’t do anything about global issues? It’s ridiculous. Kids have great ideas, and kids need a voice too. There are 1.9 billion kids in the world, and none of them can vote, or have input on the law. Why don’t you listen to us? We need to have a say.

I know some people will be thinking that we are too immature and disrespectful. Well, we can learn from mistakes, and also, not everyone is immature. That’s just like saying that adults shouldn’t have a credit card because some people steal. Yes, some do, but not everyone. It just doesn’t make sense. Why waste your time disagreeing, when you could make the world a better place?

So, do you want the world to be a horrible place because of you? Kids need to be able to do more, because we are being restricted from our will, we will learn to be more responsible, and we should be able to share our ideas. You can help this world by doing only ONE THING! Just trust kids! Is that really so much to ask?

Lilia hated her life. She hated the world, she hated the bleakness of it. She wanted something more from it, but she knew she couldn’t get it. That’s why she did what she did. She didn’t understand people the way you were meant to, didn’t interact right with others. That’s why she did what she did. She knew where she ended up would be better for her, even if it meant losing everyone she knew. Not like she did know them anyway. She set off on a journey to leave this green plant. Headed to a better life. The spikes, and the people, it just didn’t make sense. Then she found planet earth, and immediately knew, she belonged. Not in her old home, but this is where she belonged.

100 WC: I didn’t understand the instructions

100 WC: I didn’t understand the instructions

So I went to IKEA instead of the mall, only because I felt like a meatball.

 

I didn’t know they sold stuff for my home, let alone a table in the shape of a dome.

 

I decided to buy it with my every last penny, but did I have knowledge of furniture? Not any.

 

I waited in a queue for hours and hours, there were people with boxes the height of 4 towers.

 

But when I finally took out the parts, I didn’t know where or how to start!

 

I didn’t understand the instructions! This was going to conclude in a lot of destruction.

 

So I went back to IKEA, gave them a call, and said “Let me talk to the chef who makes the meatballs.”

 

I guess that tonight I’m staying right here, because guess what? I now work at IKEA!

 

100 WC- Prompt below

100 WC- Prompt below

Inbetween the dark shadows, old run down streets, is a corner, where the two towns meet. There’s a small box just there for no reason at all, and next to the looming towers it just seems small. But underneath that box is a small creature, giving this town a somewhat special feature. Because there, in our hands, is a small connection, just alone, dying, given no affection. For who would care? The people in this town have no time to spare. This creature walks from door to door, hoping to sleep on someone’s living room floor, but after rejection for days on end, this creature walks around the road’s bend. And there, is a house that has been waiting for days, and this creature knows now that it’s going to stay.

100 WC: When did it arrive?

100 WC: When did it arrive?

Okay. A word so broad, so distant, you couldn’t actually tell a single thing from someone saying it. That’s what I said when it arrived. I knew it was coming, but they didn’t know that. So instead of looking surprised at the slightest. I shrugged. “Okay. When did it arrive? They looked at me, but then when we met eyes, looked down. They were supposed to be taking care of me, not questioning my thoughts. To be honest, I didn’t really know why I needed to be here. There was nothing wrong with me, apart from that package. It was from my company, the factory I was made in. They had finished their experiment. I was done for. I had enjoyed it too much. I hadn’t documented anything. I was now going to be a working robot, not a domestic one.
