Minors should become adults when they reach the age of 18 years old. I think this for many reasons such as that it is the current law. If we tried to change the age it would be very complex and would take years to change. Another reason is that even if we do change it there will be people who disagree with it and a law can never be perfect. I think minors should become adults at the age of 18.

The driving age in Iowa is perfectly fine the way it is. 16-year-olds have restrictions which are needed, but there shouldn't be a restriction that they have to drive with an adult. The curfew for 16-17 year old drivers is needed and perfect the way it is. Some people may say 16-year-old drivers don't have much experience, but they have had to have taken drivers ed and it is the parent's job to teach them. The driving age and restrictions are perfectly fine the way it is.

Phones in school - Students should be able to use them when done with work and in the hallways.
Cursive writing - We should be taught cursive in English.
Standardized Testing - There are better ways to see what you know rather than standardized testing.
Nuclear weapons - Every country has many nuclear weapons, but very few say they have them.
Pro sports pay - Pro Athletes shouldn't be paid the big bucks people in the military should be paid for putting their lives in danger for the nation.

We can learn a lot from the past. Such as from Anne Frank we can learn that just because someone has a different religion it doesn't mean they are different. We can learn from this and treat everyone the same. We could also not discriminate just because of their religion. We can learn a lot from the past, but what's important is how we use it in our life.

Do I think that the US labor laws for child agricultural workers should be changed. The answer is yes I do believe that the law should be changed. For example their should never be someone under 16 working on a tobacco farm. There is some children as young as 7 working on tobacco farms getting sick from the tobacco and nicotine and it is legal. Something like this shouldn't be legal in today's society.

We can learn a lot from historical fiction novels one of which could be a lesson. There are many lessons in a novel called "The Year of the Hangman". The biggest one is that no one is always right. In the book Creighton is a teenager from England during the American Revolution and he thinks that the British are always right, but then gets taken by the Americans. Eventually he looked at it through the eyes of the Americans and realized that the British aren't always right. Historical fiction novels can teach us many lessons.

If I could choose where to live I would choose to live in Paris because there is very little cons I can think of. Let's start with the pros there would be so much to explore you could never get bored. The meals in France come in five servings as in the first one is an appetizer and the last one is usually some sort of coffee. That is something I can get used to there is nothing bad about it because you get more food and coffee with every meal. Unfortunately there is some cons such as the cost and having to learn French, but other than that it is a perfect place. If I could choose anywhere to live I would defiantly live in Paris.
