Let’s be honest, kids are going to make their own decisions based on their personal influences and situations anyway, so why not let them figure things out on their own, but still let them know that the only way to really protect themselves is to not have sex at all.

The government states that it is not their responsibility to fund a students’ college education, it is the responsibility of the family to support their child through all their schooling. If we gave financial aid to any student whose parents would not help them through college, than every family would just deny their child any financial help for college, and the government would have to give financial aid to every student. If financial aid was given to students who do not receive funding from their parents, there would be more people taking advantage of the system. Financial aid would be a lot easier to find loop holes to receive it also. Since there would be more people receiving financial aid, there would be less money to go around, therefore everyone would receive less money for college. The family’s that truly can’t afford college would not receive as much help as they are receiving now, and some low income family’s might have to give up the dream of college because of the lack of financial aid available for them.

Financial costs of homeschooling vary, but if a parent wants to use a curriculum to ensure their student is covering everything they need to in their specific grade, the costs can be around four hundred dollars a year. That four hundred dollars is only the cost of the curriculum for one child, what about a family that has four kids? Plus, to homeschool, many families who would have had two parents bringing in income then only have one working, so they are losing even more money.
In addition to finances, parents have the responsibility of monitoring their children’s education and encouraging learning. If students have questions about something they are studying, they will go to the parents, and parents have to help them find answers. Parents have to choose curriculum for each child, or plan lessons according to their grade, and this can be very time consuming. Overall, there is a lot of commitment. The sacrifice and commitment that help so many home schooling families to succeed are also the responsibilities that cause many to fail.

Caffeine, the most famous component of coffee, causes an increase in activity of dopamine, which largely accounts for both caffeine’s stimulating effects and its ability to diminish feelings of depression. Caffeine wakes the brain up, helping people get through the day. However, after it wears off, there can be a depressive effect.
Drinking too much coffee may cause health problems. It is believed that too much can raise your stress level. Some heavy drinkers shake after drinking coffee. Coffee can increase the risk of heart attack. It can raise your heart and blood pressure. Other studies show that drinking too much coffee could result in stomach problems. Furthermore, some experts believe that caffeine is addictive.
Having nearby coffee shops could contribute to dependency. If Coffee is not as readily available, perhaps people would not consume as much, therefore reducing the chance of health problems and addiction. Last but not least, not having coffee shops on campus would save students money!
Some people also argue that alcohol is actually good for you so there is no reason to stop it's consumption. While alcohol is good for you in moderation, and can decrease a person's chances of getting dementia and other heart diseases most students do not drink in moderation. The last argument for a wet campus is the idea that a college can make a lot of money. As you can see there are many arguments against a dry campus but if you research each of these arguments you will find out there are many better arguments for a dry campus than for a wet.
