Could kids be prime ministers???

Well i wonder have you ever thought that kids might be able to become prime ministers one day??? Because i have and I really think that it could happen one day.

Why???

Well some people might think that it is impossible but really nothing is impossible. If kids have good education of Brexit and politicians they could have a good shot at being a prime minister for example Donald trump had no experience in politics before he became prime minister of the US so it just shows that it is possible.

How could we make this happen???

Well we could make this happen by letting kids go to a special school where they will learn about politics,Brexit and all the basic things of being a prime minister. This would help them develop their understand of being a prime minister. We would have to make sure that they are also learning the basic stuff that regular schools learn.

Is there any down sides of this???

Yes I do believe that their are some downsides of a kid being a prime minister because kids can sometimes get silly. Also if they are just young they might make wrong disisions and only do what is best for themselves and not what is best for there country. Also if they change their Mind than they are not going to have a lot of education for over jobs. But if that is your child's dream you must let them achieve your dream.

Could it it stop adults from seing their children???

Well it could turn out that they are spending a lot of time working on politics but I am sure that their could be another way to let kids see their adults as it is important for mother and children to bond with each over. Maybe we could make them have visiting time where family can visit them. But they will still see them at night and we could make shure that they are home for dinner.

Do do you think it will happen???

Well really I don't think that it could happen but I am sure that if we all make a difference to the world than it might just happen. After all kids must achieve their dreams too.....

    This is a well-reasoned post, well done! Some people say that if you have a special job in the cabinet, for example if you are the health secretary or education secretary, you should have experience of working in that area and doing those types of jobs (like teaching or being a doctor). At the moment, some of those people only have experience in politics or in a totally different job. What do you think? Do you think the cabinet ministers should have experience in the area they are making decisions in?

    I think that this could actually happen because if one day this information was passed on to the Prime Minister in the future, they could not add special schools straight away, but for those who’s ambition is to be a prime minister, the Prime Minister at that time could start to set up a sort of club at schools, and then expand it eventually into actual schools, to try and achieve the child’s dream. I also agree that children can be silly so it might not be a good idea, for example a child Prime Minister might try to cancel school. However, if they did have the education of politics to a large extent, then they might be taught not to make silly decisions and they could be taught what sort of decisions to make. In conclusion, I think that this could happen in time if someone passes on this information to someone of power, and then the person of power passes it on to the Prime Minister.

    I think that it would be a great idea I would personally love to be a prime minister at my age. I would give away my time to train and learn the facilities. It would be good for all ages to learn about prime ministers as we do not learn about politics much in school. Not only would we learn more things I think it would also be a very good experience. I would obviously I would make time so than I can spend time with family and friends because they are the thing that is most important to me. I loved your post please do more like this.

    I don't think children should be a priminister, as I don't think they will know what is going or what to do. They will not be a good priminister because they will not know what going on or what is happening when crucial events are taking like brexit now, anything could happen like this in the future and it will be too much for just a child. They won't be able to understand politics and how the country is running and whether they will make the appropriate choice at the appropriate time and sensible choices. I think that adults are just fine with what is going on because they know what is going on and understand politics they are sensible people.

    I think that kids shouldn't be prime minister. Here's why.

    The first and most important reason why kids shouldn't be prime minister is because being a prime minister means that you are in charge of the whole country and you have some power over Brexit. If this did happen then kids would make silly rules like no school, no vegetables, sugar only etc. We can't let this happen to the country otherwise parents will feel really stupid.

    Secondly, how will a child get through elections and be smart enough to run the country?
    You can't have a child going through elections because they don't know how it works and know if they won the election or not. We should really stick with adults being prime minister because they know what they are doing.

    The only way children could run the country is to have an adult with them to help them do the right thing and say what the parent says.

    Out of these reasons though I think children shouldn't run the country and just stick with adults instead.
    Thanks for reading

    I personally think that kids shoulden't be prime ministers only because :

    Firstly, a lot of kids probably don't have the brains to be one.

    Secondly, they might make silly decisions.

    Thirdly, parents will probably miss them.

    Next, kids will make brexit go, along with Borris Johnson.

    Finally, kids can't run a whole country.

    In conclusion I think that kids are too silly and lazy and make bad decisions for the country. They will ask and ask for what ever they want. So I really think no.

      I think that you have provided good evidence and made a strong point. However, just remember that not all kids are going to be bad PM's. You never know, I think that kids with good ideas and education could run the country.

    This was a great post and I was getting annoyed I couldn't comment on this post because all the facts and info was taken.

    Reasons for kids to become prime ministers:
    Kids would be great prime ministers (saying this as a kid) as then the children would transform the country, there probably would be no BREXIT. I mean Christmas for me 2 years ago was great because everybody was talking about Christmas not BREXIT. That is what it was like, 3 years ago. All BREXIT is doing, is making people want to explode, children would definitely stop the terrible BREXIT going on, reason is because parents are coming so very annoyed with the news. The only things that aren't politics and BREXIT are the sport and Australian bush fires. Parents should live at 10 Downing Street as well so that is not a problem.

    Reasons for having no children as a prime ministers:
    Children are not that old so unless they go to a super special school, they shouldn't stand much of a chance. Adult prime ministers are a lot smarter. Although some parents may hate the prime minister and say that their son or daughter are a lot smarter just because they love their family. Adults don't go crazy after having a Sprite, they are extremely serious in the Houses of Parliament, just like they are meant to, they make a better decision instead of having children making a stop to school.

    Thank you for reading my post,

    I think kids should not be PMs.
    Here is is my reasoning behind my viewpoint.
    Firstly, a PM should be experienced. I understand that kids like Greta Thunberg are incredibly inspirational but adults are older and have therefore been through a lot of life's challeges. I will provide 2 examples to strengthen my argument. Someone like Barack Obama has seen what his predecessors have done and so he can learn from them or mend there mistakes whereas a kid would not have Seen that, they may have heard about what past politicians have done but they will not have as much experience and therefore might not understand why politicians have done things the way they have. Another example is that: a kid might be a PM but then an adult politician might have a problem and the kid might not be able to deal with it if it is complexed, this would be the result of lack of experience.
    Secondly, a kid PM might feel intimidated by the people he/she leads because, as I said, adults are older and more experienced. For example: there might be a meeting that the PM has to attend and because the PM is the leader, the PM might feel uncomfortable and overwhelmed.
    In conclusion, kids should not be prime minister because they might not be able to cope emotionally and lack experience.

    Should kids be allowed to be Prime Ministers?

    Yes:
    kids should be Prime Ministers because they would want to speak out and share what they think, we live in a democracy so they should be allowed to speak out to the world.

    No:
    Kids should NOT be allowed because they are too young, and also they might not be responsible and may start debates because they would say silly things to the world that others won’t agree with.

    I think no kids shouldn’t be Prime Ministers because they aren’t responsible enough and may say wrong things.

    No because I don’t think kids are responsible enough to be prime minister because they make big decisions and speak up and confident about what to say and adults are smart educated and responsible kids don’t have the confidence to do that kind of stuff

    I don’t think kids should be Prime Minister because they probably don’t know what they are doing. They are in charge of the world. There is also a change of them being it when they are older.

    I feel like kids could be PMs not now but maybe in the future here are my reasons why :
    Us kids still need to learn and have an education as well as that we all have to know the
    Responsibility’s of being a PM and write now I don’t think the world is ready for
    Children being PMs .
    Well that’s all from me
    Thanks quick tree

    I think that children shouldn't become Prime Ministers because even though they might have a lot of knowledge (like us) they might make decisions which they might believe is the correct decision to make, but could put the country in great danger or or put the country in a bad position. They might also only do things that involve themselves or their family; they could also be selfless and not open towards the public and take things for granted like using the salary they get from their job on things that they don't need like when Hazel Blears (a cabinet Minister) spent money on things for herself.

    To conclude I think that children should not be Prime Ministers because of the mistakes that they could make and the situations they could make the country face.

      I agree with you children might make the wrong decisions even though they might be really clever, but at the same time they could be if they were going to be responsible for their country and also fair to everyone. In my opinion it should be adults as they probably know more and it will be safer for everyone. Although some kids might know more than adults I still think that children being prime minister is not oa good idea as you never know what they will do. For example one day they feel happy so they make good decisions, but the next day they feel upset so they can make decisions that could ruin that country forever. Adults however, know what to do as they are older.

        Interesting ideas generous_seagull! Do you think that adults in important roles ever make decisions based on their mood?

          Yes, İ think it can happen to everyone as everyone is human and it’s the same thing with art, it depends on your mood on how well you paint. So if you make bad decisions it depends on how you are feeling.

    I think that kids should not be prime minister as resilient_apple exclaimed they would make silly laws/choices it wouldn't be a great place kids would have fun but the adults wouldn't and that wouldn't be fair on the adults. Also kids should have fun and play sports!

    I don’t personally believe children should be given the power or responsibilities that goes with the job of being prime minister, Also by putting children in this position they would have to try and balance an education as well, also its important for children to have strong relationships with their parents and people around them these give them social and life skills that should be require to help them in both life and work. The youngest politician ever appointed in the UK William Pitt the Younger who became prime minister in 1783 aged 24. Our country also has been ruled by the monarchy along with the government, The monarchy can ‘rule’ our country at any age with the youngest being both Mary queen of scots who was 6 days old and Henry VI who was only 8 years old. I don’t believe these should be ideal conditions for children to grow up in. Children’s hopes and dreams can change as they grow up but if it is something they are willing to strive to then there’s no reason why they cannot become one when they get older.

    I do not think children should be able to become prime ministers. The way you have said that children could go to a special school and learn how to be a prime ministers is a little unrealistic. To be prime minister you have to usually be the leader of the winning party. If you train to be a prime minister, you would only be educated in that field and not the wider picture. Secondly, children do not pay taxes and vote, this would bring up the question on how they would be elected- needing to represent a entire constituency. Children do not know enough about adult concerns, this would mean they would be out of touch with the 'real' needs of the community. Thirdly, children are only children, far too young to get mass hate from the public, have bodyguards everywhere they go and withstand the extreme pressures of the job. Being PM would also affect the child's education, going back to the 'special PM schools' being in a environment like that, they would lose touch with the public world and be less social. As Free_Iceberg said, the child would have to balance out his/her education and the job. It is really important to make the most of child-hood, having fun, enjoying the satisfaction of not having a bucket load of responsibilities and going on adventures...When you get older, you will most likely get a job and be paying taxes...the idea of having a full-blown job when you are child would be very sad. Would you, all your child life, like to go to work everyday, missing your education and sit behind a desk for hours on end.
