James asks…

Could someone please look over my relatively short paper for any logical fallacies and editing?

I’m writing a paper for my english class. We read a “letter to the editor” from a person in our town dissing teenagers and how they have bad manners and “tart-like clothing”. We needed to write a response letter for our essay agreeing or disagreeing with her. And proving our point.

We cannot have ANY Logical Fallacies (Begging the question, red herring, faulty cause and effect, etc.) or we fail the paper.

Would you please read my paper and see if you can spot any? Any editing that needs to be done as well? Thanks SO much!!

I feel the need to point out that the amount of well-behaved young citizens in our community is growing; because there appears to be an awful lot of put downs towards teenagers written as a majority. While it seems to be true that some teenagers nowadays are acting and dressing in a less-than-favorable manner, those who were raised to have manners and respect for all people are not being recognized. Instead, they are being stereotyped as “raised by wolves”.

However, statistics show that the national graduation percentage is increasing in high schools. Families have a lot to do with this. For example, kids who enjoy family meals regularly are less likely to do drugs, smoke, or have an eating disorder. They are also more likely to have better grades and to delay sexual activity. TV Land’s “Family Table” commercials have increased the number of families who spend time doing this. “Sharing more than meals” appears to help parents raise well-mannered and healthy children. The teenagers we see running around town with little clothing on and bad table manners usually have little time spent talking with their families.

However, thanks to TV Land, a lot more families are spending time together at the dinner table. This has led to an increase in children’s grades and respect for themselves. Respect for themselves leads to better clothing choices, hygiene habits, and attitudes. Spending time at the table with their parents leads to better manners, because their parents are there to reinforce them.

If we continue to urge parents to spend time with their children, we should see even more of an increase in the appearance and attitudes of our teenagers. But let’s not forget we cannot possibly know the situation one family may be in, versus another. Maybe the family cannot afford clothes all the time. They could be hand-me-downs that don’t fit properly. A teen may also be having a bad day, and forget to use manners when passing you on a street.

I urge you all to take into consideration that not all teenagers are the same, and many are growing into be fine young adults. A group of teenagers being rowdy on a street corner does not represent the entire population. These young adults are our future; let’s guide them into being the respectful adults they will hopefully someday be.

Ken asks…

Would you like more informaton on hosting and international exchange student?

FORTE INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE ASSOCIATION
A Non-Profit Educational Program

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN HOSTING A HIGH SCHOOL EXCHANGE STUUDNET?

Forte International Exchange Association is looking for good homes for students from many different countries. Students will be arriving this August to spend five to ten months living with families in your community.

There is no such thing as a typical host family! Single-parent families, retired couples, families with young children, as well as those with teenagers or who are empty-nesters have all had successful hosting experiences. The most important criteria for a FIEA host family are a genuine interest to share the American culture with a foreign teenager and a genuine interest in the well-being of the student.

Each applicant is screened and prepared for the exchange by experienced international staff representatives. Participants are chosen based on their academic achievements, extracurricular activities, adaptability and responsibility. All applicants have completed several years of English instruction prior to their acceptance into FIEA’s program.

FIEA provides each student with medical and liability insurance, and every host family is assigned a local program representative to assist them during the exchange experience.

It is only through the kindness and generosity of families in communities like yours that these young ambassadors will be able to fulfill their dreams!

Students will bring their own spending money to cover such expenses as clothing, school supplies and entertainment. They can share a room. Host families are asked to provide meals and a home environment. While no compensation is paid directly by FIEA to volunteer families, the IRS has authorized families who host for government-designated, non-profit educational exchange programs – such as FIEA – to claim a $50.00 per month charitable contribution deduction on their itemized tax returns.

Forte International made over $1million in revenues last year. The president M.B. Chen makes $120,000 per year and only works 30 hours per week. It costs from $7000 to $11,000 to care for a teenager for the entire school year. Important to check out all aspects before committing to caring for someone else’s child for the entire school year. The kindness and generosity of host families increases revenues for exchange placement agencies.
