Thesis statement: 
To provide teenagers with unrestricted freedom, they may easily go astray and fall 
prey to undesirable situation such as underage drug abuse, pregnancy or driving 
under peer pressure.
Effects of Unrestricted Freedom among Teenagers 
Should unrestricted freedom in making life decisions be given to teenagers? 
For many years, these arguments have been publicly debated among the society. In 
regards to this, we have to first establish that everyone, including children, have the 
rights of freedom to a certain extent in pursuing their future as each distinct individual 
should be the main author of their life story. However, the question now lies if 
adolescent have enough maturity to handle the hedonistic society. Are they able to 
make the right decisions? Modern technologies provide human an ease of 
convenience to access all field of knowledge at the touch of a button (PragnaShekar, 
2013). While this can be the right tool for some people, many teenagers may fall 
prey to the negative influence of cyber world. In my opinion, such influences would 
have a significant impact on teenagers; especially they are on the phase of character 
and knowledge building. To provide teenagers with unrestricted freedom, they may 
easily go astray and fall prey to undesirable situation such as underage drug abuse, 
pregnancy or driving under peer pressure. 
Underage drug abuse is considered as the foremost problems among 
teenagers. The Malaysian legal system forbids teenagers below 18 to purchase 
cigarettes, alcohols and, of course, drugs. This was initially implemented to protect 
adolescent from being an addict of these hazardous substances. Unfortunately, this 
does not stop teenagers from accessing to these substances by illegal means. I 
believe that anything, if taken to the extreme, would lead to nothing good. Drug 
abuse might be hazardous as drug addicts will be controlled by the euphoric feeling 
and accidentally commit suicide when they get hallucinations. They might do 
something wrong unconsciously, such as murder, as they can never differentiate 
right and wrong, the real and the fantasy anymore. Along with nicotine, cigarette
smokers are subjected to 7,000 other chemicals through the inhalation of smoke 
(Better Health Channel, 2012). These chemicals are harmful to nearly every organ in 
the body (Better Health Channel, 2012). Notably, it should be advised that smoking 
does not only affect the smokers themselves but also the public indirectly as second-hand 
smokers. 
In addition, underage pregnancy presents a critical issue among teenagers 
which arouses public concerns. In Malaysia, the minimum age of consent for both 
sexes is 16 to protect adolescence from sexual abuse (Hariati, 2012). Sexual 
activities among teenagers often occur without them considering the consequences, 
such as unexpected pregnancy. This may leads to abortion or abandoned babies. 
Such decision may arise due to concerns on how having a baby will derail their 
personal future goals, financial responsibilities associated with parenthood and 
whether or not they are ready to become a parent (Child Trends Databank, 2014). 
Underage pregnancy carries an extra health risks to the underage mother as they 
will have a higher risk of pregnancy-related high blood pressure if they do not get 
enough prenatal care (MedlinePlus, 2014). In addition, underage mother will have a 
higher chance in facing various health problems and mental disorder syndrome, 
such as anaemia or depression (MedlinePlus, 2014). The baby born, on the other 
hand, may be premature and have a low birth weight. At the same time, education 
will also be affected as the underage parents may have to stop attending school in 
order to focus on their new born. Financial problems may also arise as most 
teenagers themselves do not have a proper and reliable income. 
Last but not least, underage driving issue is necessary for every each of us to 
give concern to. The law of Malaysia has stated that only teenagers above 16 are 
legal to get a driving licence and by all means, drive on the road. Most underage
teenagers tend to drive due to peer pressure or that feeling of youthful invincibility. 
“Teenagers have a sense that they can get away with transgressions – a feeling of 
bravado whereby “I can get away with anything .” (Arrive Alive, 2014). “They often 
underestimate road hazards due to their inexperience and immature thinking while 
they also do not have enough experience to respond to road hazards.” (Helen, 2012). 
The two main issues made by underage driving are speeding and drunk driving. It is, 
somehow, lethal. It causes severe road accidents and the survivors often suffer from 
emotional scars. Meanwhile, teenagers are easily distracted by talking to their 
friends. They naturally think that it is fine to take risk without getting harm. 
As a conclusion, I strongly disagree that unrestricted freedom should be given 
to teenagers as it actually leads to negative outcome such as drug abuse, teenage 
pregnancy and underage driving. Other than these issues, movie restriction is also 
one of the major aspects we should all be concern about. I suggest that parents 
should communicate with their chi ldren frequently in order to know about what is on 
their mind.

  • 4. Effects of Unrestricted Freedom among Teenagers Should unrestricted freedom in making life decisions be given to teenagers? For many years, these arguments have been publicly debated among the society. In regards to this, we have to first establish that everyone, including children, have the rights of freedom to a certain extent in pursuing their future as each distinct individual should be the main author of their life story. However, the question now lies if adolescent have enough maturity to handle the hedonistic society. Are they able to make the right decisions? Modern technologies provide human an ease of convenience to access all field of knowledge at the touch of a button (PragnaShekar, 2013). While this can be the right tool for some people, many teenagers may fall prey to the negative influence of cyber world. In my opinion, such influences would have a significant impact on teenagers; especially they are on the phase of character and knowledge building. To provide teenagers with unrestricted freedom, they may easily go astray and fall prey to undesirable situation such as underage drug abuse, pregnancy or driving under peer pressure. Underage drug abuse is considered as the foremost problems among teenagers. The Malaysian legal system forbids teenagers below 18 to purchase cigarettes, alcohols and, of course, drugs. This was initially implemented to protect adolescent from being an addict of these hazardous substances. Unfortunately, this does not stop teenagers from accessing to these substances by illegal means. I believe that anything, if taken to the extreme, would lead to nothing good. Drug abuse might be hazardous as drug addicts will be controlled by the euphoric feeling and accidentally commit suicide when they get hallucinations.

These chemicals are harmful to nearly every organ in the body (Better Health Channel, 2012). Notably, it should be advised that smoking does not only affect the smokers themselves but also the public indirectly as second-hand smokers. In addition, underage pregnancy presents a critical issue among teenagers which arouses public concerns. In Malaysia, the minimum age of consent for both sexes is 16 to protect adolescence from sexual abuse (Hariati, 2012). Sexual activities among teenagers often occur without them considering the consequences, such as unexpected pregnancy. This may leads to abortion or abandoned babies. Such decision may arise due to concerns on how having a baby will derail their personal future goals, financial responsibilities associated with parenthood and whether or not they are ready to become a parent (Child Trends Databank, 2014). Underage pregnancy carries an extra health risks to the underage mother as they will have a higher risk of pregnancy-related high blood pressure if they do not get enough prenatal care (MedlinePlus, 2014). In addition, underage mother will have a higher chance in facing various health problems and mental disorder syndrome, such as anaemia or depression (MedlinePlus, 2014). The baby born, on the other hand, may be premature and have a low birth weight. At the same time, education will also be affected as the underage parents may have to stop attending school in order to focus on their new born. Financial problems may also arise as most teenagers themselves do not have a proper and reliable income. Last but not least, underage driving issue is necessary for every each of us to give concern to. The law of Malaysia has stated that only teenagers above 16 are legal to get a driving licence and by all means, drive on the road. Most underage
  • 6. teenagers tend to drive due to peer pressure or that feeling of youthful invincibility. “Teenagers have a sense that they can get away with transgressions – a feeling of bravado whereby “I can get away with anything .” (Arrive Alive, 2014). “They often underestimate road hazards due to their inexperience and immature thinking while they also do not have enough experience to respond to road hazards.” (Helen, 2012). The two main issues made by underage driving are speeding and drunk driving. It is, somehow, lethal. It causes severe road accidents and the survivors often suffer from emotional scars. Meanwhile, teenagers are easily distracted by talking to their friends. They naturally think that it is fine to take risk without getting harm. As a conclusion, I strongly disagree that unrestricted freedom should be given to teenagers as it actually leads to negative outcome such as drug abuse, teenage pregnancy and underage driving. Other than these issues, movie restriction is also one of the major aspects we should all be concern about. I suggest that parents should communicate with their chi ldren frequently in order to know about what is on their mind.
