This picture shows a small pool reflecting the sky in white pocket on the Paria Plateau. The water from the ground has washed the color out of the rock and the weather has cracked the rock into different shapes. The article is about the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. I think it is interesting because the cliffs are very cool to look at and I enjoy geology. I think that this picture tells a story a thousand-year story. Click here to view the image.

Kid’s Rights

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Children’s rights are limited in many ways. First, children do not have freedom of speech. A kid can still question an adult, or ‘talk back’, politely and respectfully. For example, if a kid said, “excuse me ma’am, but I don’t think it is fair that fair that I have to be sent to the corner if I didn’t do anything” they would get in even more trouble for talking back, even though they were being polite. A child cannot be an advocate for themselves without getting in trouble for being disrespectful even though they legally have freedom of speech. Next, students do not have the right to modify their education to their preference. If they are in a class with people they cannot work with they have to deal with it. They cannot do anything about it. In conclusion, there are many rights kids do not have that they should.

I can see why some people might not want kids to have these rights. First, children might abuse their rights. On the other hand, if an adult checks in and makes sure they are not abusing their rights it will be fine. Next, a kid might hurt an adult’s feelings by talking back. Nevertheless, if the kid uses polite words the adult will not feel disrespected. Overall, there are many reasons why kid’s rights should change.
