I grew up and went to school in a small town in a small country called Lithuania. Lithuania is a country next to Poland and Estonia in Europe. I moved to America almost five years ago. I had a chance to face the laws of Lithuania and America and I see a big differences and similarities between these two country’s.
Let’s give more freedom and excitement for teenagers. That was the first of my thoughts when I came to AAmerica. In Lithuania teenagers don’t have curfews, they can stay outside as long as they want.

In my opinion if you get drivers licenses that means you are an adult and you are responsible for your choices and your actions. So why won’t the government change the law and let the teenagers drink alcoholic beverages when they turn eighteen not twenty-one.

While in America, you are able to work even when you are still going to school. This is a big plus for America. In that way teenagers can start saving or being independent. This is what I was doing for the past four years. I don’t have to go to my parents and ask for money to go to the movies or to the restaurant. I am ...
