  1. 1. Children are not adults and they should not be treated as adult's but as children Linkedln Slide share for classes
  2. 2. Children are not adults and they should not be treated as adults but as children Children in the old days was consider a blessing but it seem we do not value our children anymore. We do not see anything wrong with putting children in prison with adults. We do not stop and think of what kind of child that will be once they have spent ten or twenty year without parents in cell with a grown man or women. They are not learning anything good. Many time these children don't get an education so they come out of jail about the age they went in. They don't know how to live in the real world. Many of these children come out more anger and ready to set it off because their roles models are criminal. When need to really start to look at how we can fix our juvenile systems. So that children can learn to be better people than another criminal we have to worry about once he or she get out. I want us to teach our children to learn to respect the law not ignore everything this country has work for. We got to do better with our youth before it is to late and we will have a world hard to live in. Because everyone will just be a criminal. I want to see our world get better and help the youth.
  3. 3. Children are not adults and they should not be treated as adults but as children <ul>I will be talking about how children should not be treated as adults. That we need to find better ways to punish our teens and young children. I do not think anyone who is under the age of eighteen should behind bars with adult men and women they do not think or really act like an adult. We need to open up better programs for our youth. I do not think exposing our children to adult prison going to help them in the long run and it will hurt our country. These children are learning from the best criminal how to be a better criminal. They are not attending school or learning how to be productivity in any way. Many time we are aloud grown men to harm young boys and girls so that they are confuse to who they should be. They don't learn morals or values in jail or prison. In a detention center you are giving more options on how to help a young person than when they are place behind bars in adult prison. Our country want to claim that we are better than other country but we are not because we believe taking children and teens and places so that men and women can do many bad things to them or force them to be lock in a hole where they get no human contact and find nothing wrong with it. Well I think we may want to look at the system and see what changes can be made. </ul>
  4. 4. Children are not adults and they should not be treated as adults but as children <ul>Charging children as adults and holding them in adult facilities alone for more than twenty-three hours a day is not good. Many children begin to ponder suicide being locked up for such a long time without company. Often times before child is taken to trial they sit alone in their cell wondering what is going to be their fate. When a child is to be tried as an adult there is a special place for them be be put until they have their trial and a decision is made for where they will serve their time. If there is not an area for juveniles to be placed in, they are put into solitary confinement. Solitary confinement allows safety for the juvenile from being attack by the other inmates. Children that are charged as adults are considered bad in society and it is accepted as good to put them away that way they cannot hurt anyone else but what people don't understand these children will become more violence and more dangers. Juveniles are many times given worse sentences than some grown men and women who have done many more crimes. </ul>
  5. 5. Children are not adults and they should not be treated as adults but as children <ul>What happen when children are left in adult prisons? Most of the time these children are forgotten. They grow up and get out of prison only to end up right back in prison for doing worse crimes because they never got the help they needed to stop the cycle. Many of these children do not get to finish school so they re-offend. We really need to look at the juvenile system and see how it can be changed. There are many programs out their now that are trying to help young people stay out of prison or not go at all. <li>Many time we need to look at where the young person has come from. Many of these children come from single parent home where there is no father in the prison or he in jail or prison.
  6. 6. You have to look at the environment they have come from is it a gang infested area. You have a lot of children join gang to stay safe. We need to do better in our schools. Drop out rates should not be happening at all. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Children are not adults and they should not be treated as adults but as children <ul>Two programs that we know are working for sure. Scared straight and After scared straight. <li>Their also boot camps for kids and Police making sure children are in school.
  8. 8. I think that you should not have anyone under age of twenty-one on the street they need to be in school or at work. We need to get to the place in our society that our children should matter enough to get hard on them. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Children are not adults and they should not be treated as adults but as children <ul>If we get a hold on this situation now we could have a better society. We could have children doing better instead of in jail with adult doing nothing with their lives. We could have better future for everyone. Right now we have so many children behind bars serving life sentence that we are losing our future. What will we gain by making sure all of our children go away for life as soon as they hit the age of 12 on. I want to see better laws to stop jailing our babies and put with adults. </ul>
  10. 10. Children are not adults and they should not be treated as adults but as children <ul>We have got to change the laws <li>We need to get a hold on children behavior
  11. 11. We need to get programs back to help children stay out of trouble
  12. 12. We need parents to get involve in helping children do better in school and in their behavior.
  13. 13. We need to find ways to show the good and bad kids what you get when you stay out of trouble. </li></ul>
