Should kids have a right to express their political views about whats happening ?

Politicians and Power - Featured Image 10

I think kids should tell people what they think about their feedback on whats happening in the political atmosphere. The reason why I think they should because just because kids are young doesnt mean that they wonder about whats going to happen and what are they going to do. Some very bright and responsible kids should able to go to Parliament to tell the politicians about what us kids should like and our suggestions on how the country is run. Maybe a kid whose very young might make a suggestion that none of the politicians have made yet! I have some suggestions but I'm not sure that they are very reponsible. Maybe there should be a parliament of kids! It might be could " The parliament of Youth". Well maybe some years later ! I cant quite imagine a kid who could be a jury. I think many kids know about most of the things which are more important. Wild fires, climate change, Global warming, knife crime and my other things are very important. If politicians are not going to be bothered then its going to backed up by the Parliament of youth! I made a post about " Should children be allowed to vote" and I said I dont think children should be allowed to vote but when more than 30 people commented on it,I regreted it bitterly because they all had so many convincing veiws about it. So now I think children over the age of 16 should be allowed to vote. I think there should be more youth clubs and defence clubs for children still in their youth because if they ever face racistmn, it could really help them to be more confident which I feel is really great. Im very shy myself so maybe I should go to one myself! :) I'ts very tragic when young people die because of a knife which is really unfair because they are innocent. Youth clubs give really supporting advice and do really good protection. The government are mainly talking about Brexit and more could be done if they listen to us. Children should also try out acting clubs because you can express your emotions and make a story of it which could be maken into a book or movie! It also makes children feel more confident then shy and they can risk taking opportunities that they have never been offered.

This post took me quite a while and I panned it at home and i had to watch some news videos and read news papers wich i still do now and im proud of. I hope you enjoyed it and have a wonderful day! I appreiate if you had any siggestions for politician!

Yours sincerely, precious_heart

    Kids should be given the choice to vote because, it could be our future someone is destroying by voting in a party, or voting brexit. Also, thanks for typing all of that post up, I am very grateful, because reading it gave me something to do, and I know much more now!

    Children could be politicians because it's their world they are going to live in the next few years.They will become the next doctor accountant athlete and politicians..The children will act on the benefit for their futures.

    However many politician have been in the house of commons for many years. They have experience and expertise.Also some of the children might not have studied economics and politics in university so they lack the knowledge.

    Therefore I think children and adults should work together to make England a better place.

    I definitely think kids should have political rights because we are the next generation of people to come! therefore we should be able to vote. if I were priminister then I would change the law to: if you are over 14 you can vote. if you agree with me please reply so I can learn more about this topic because I love learning about Great Britain and Priministers.


    thanks for reading,

    On the one hand, some people believe that children should be able to share their personal thoughts with the world and people around them. This might be because these people are considering that when these political desicions are finally launched us children will have to face the consequences of the desicions not necessarily the adults today. Also this is OUR WORLD TOO!!!

    However, on the other hand, others believe that children should not be allowed to share their thoughts of the political side of being a person. This is because they believe that children might just copy what their friend or parent has said. This could be the difference of one desicion to an other!

    After approaching the information with open mindedness and scepticism I strongly believe that children SHOULD be able to share their thoughts because of the reasons I stated above. Thanks for reading my comment!

      What age do you think children pay less attention to their parents and make their own decisions?

    I guess they should have a right to express their political views about whats happening but not by very much because not everyone understands politics and might just go by what their friends say.

    Yes but only over a particular age. The current age is 18 but my opinion is 16. Children have bright young minds and they have a right to discuss their opinions and share their ideas. For example Greta Thumberg is an amazing role model and inspires a lot of people and still today. She is doing so much for the environment.

    I agree with you because sometimes we can have better ideas then the people in parliament maybe we could say what we think and then we could mix our ideas with other politicians

    In my opinion if children express their political views they need to have a very good understanding of politics and what it is. Social Media is a good platform also as it can get across the world very quickly which could help other countries in their political affairs. The world has many great speakers that put up a really good debate around the world such as Greta Thunberg and many more. The reason I have chosen her is because she has not only been standing up for climate change she is also talking against world leaders like Donald Trump who are very well known around the world. Greta Thunberg may not be a child as she is a teenager but she still technically is a child as she is not 18 yet. Kids that are not teenagers and are already on the world stage little children should be inspired and intrigued as if the can put up a good debate like that.

    This is why I think children should express their political views

      Thank you for speaking up about children who speak up! Why do you think there aren't more well-known examples like Greta Thunberg?
