Examples Of Arguments Against Lowering The Drinking Age

Decent Essays
The topic of drinking alcohol around young people has been taboo among parents, usually because of aversion to their children consuming alcohol altogether. Though arguments against lowering the minimum drinking age are valid, I’d like to present reasons as to why a lower drinking age would be beneficial overall. I am currently enrolled in college to major in computer science. I graduated high school with honors, and I have never drank alcohol. I take this to be because of the person I am. My parents want me to be safe at all times. My parents and I would have conversations not about why they shouldn’t do something, but consequences to given actions. This way I didn’t feel nagged, or feel like I should rebel to prove myself to others.
