    611 words
    I've lost count of how many times I've asked my parents for money for the movies or for the mall. Usually, they tell me to get a job or to be more responsible with the things I already have.

    Divorce not only affects parents, but it also affects their children by making them look at things in a different and a negative way. A child needs the love and support of both parents so that he can grow in a good environment, and can grow well. Right now in the world divorces are really common. And what I have seen is that ruins the "family appearance." What I believe is that children are the ones who suffer the most.

Having the freedom to choose not attending school and starting work, at an early age, can lead teenagers to two different pathways in life. One of which is known to be the positive path for succ...
