Schools should not encourage romantic relationships at young ages, because they distract from school work, confuse children, and cause extra problems.
First, romantic relationships at young ages distract students. One example of how distracting these relationships can be when students get distracted by trying to keep track of who’s with who. Also, romantic relationships in school might cause some “young couples” to get fresh during school.
Second, romantic relationships would produce extra confusion. When you have romantic relationships you get the homosexual aspect where some young people feel they are attracted to the same gender thing when they are not even old enough for romantic relationships. Also, the homosexual aspect just opens up a world of confusion.
Third, romantic relationships cause extra problems and stress for students. Dating is not meant for sport, as the society says it is. Dating is for when you are trying to find a marriage mate, and at middle school level people are WAY to young to get married. Also, dating and romantic relationships can cause teen pregnancy.
Here are some examples of how schools are encouraging romantic relationships at young ages and suggestions of how schools can discourage romantic relationships at young ages. Schools are encouraging romantic relationships at young ages by holding dances. An example at my school is my ELA teacher has us reading short stories that encourage romantic relationships at young ages. Schools can discourage romantic relationships at young ages, by not having socials or dances and by not encouraging stories that support romantic relationships at young ages.
As I expressed in this post, encouraging romantic relationships in schools can lead to distractions from school work, confusion, and extra problems.
