Parental controls — we’ve all seen the option for this on your browser or computer and perhaps some of us have experienced the effects of such parental controls in a variety of situations. As mentioned in an article for the magazine about youth rights, parents are often a major source of influence and restrictions on the ability of the youth to exert control over their lives. Considering that parents are probably the first adults that a child comes into contact with, they often have a huge role in determining the limits of the youth’s power to exert control over their lives as they grow older. Personally I believe that parents, of all people, should be allowing their child greater extents of freedom. I suppose it would be hard to generalize since each kid is different from another but there are often signs that indicate that they are mature enough to handle their own lives, or at least, more of it than is assumed. However, with the current levels of restriction it is evident that it has resulted in many parent-child conflicts. – Vivian
