    The Thesis Statement The crime rate of youngsters across the world have been on the rise and there has always been a huge debate on whether heavier punishments do good or hurt young criminals .

    The Topic Sentence

    The topic sentence supports the thesis statement

    BODY

    HAVE IT YOUR WAY

    The Topic Sentence First, young people are still in an ambiguous period between maturity and immaturity. They dont have a keen judgment on matters. So the society can still have a deep impact on their behaviour. For instance, they can easily pick up negative behaviours from their peers as well as the media. If they commit serious crimes, it might simply be a reflection of social decay. Blaming the youngsters for the negative public morals is therefore unfair.

    The Topic Sentence Second, young people have a future ahead. They should be given another chance to start a new life. We shouldnt deprive them of their opportunities to mend their way and start anew. An old proverb goes: To err is human ; to forgive divine If our government can give these young criminals proper education and guidance, there is a possibility that they will lead a new life. Moreover , adults can give good examples to teenagers who have gone astray. By doing this juvenile delinquency can be effectively be rectified and the governments virtue of emphasis on human rights can also be manifested.

    The Concluding Sentence

    The concluding sentence is a re-statement of the thesis.

    Conclusion

    HAVE IT YOUR WAY

    The Concluding Sentence It is said that, Ignorance of the law excuse no one. However, blindly enhancing the enforcement of laws is not a good way to prevent crimes. We should make efforts on improving the public morality and general mood. Without this measurement, any introduction of severe punishment is definitely useless.

    Supporting Sentences In the first place, people enjoy the companionship of cats. Many cats are affectionate. They will snuggle up and ask to be petted, or scratched under the chin: Who can resist a purring cat? If they're not feeling affectionate, cats are generally quite playful. They love to chase balls and feathers, or just about anything dangling from a string. They especially enjoy playing when their owners are participating in the game. Contrary to popular opinion, cats can be trained. Using rewards and punishments, just like with a dog, a cat can be trained to avoid unwanted behaviour or perform tricks. Cats will even fetch!

    Supporting Sentences- examples In the second place, cats are civilized members of the household . Unlike dogs, cats do not bark or make other loud noises. Most cats don't even meow very often. They generally lead a quiet existence. Cats also don't often have "accidents." Mother cats train their kittens to use the litter box, and most cats will use it without fail from that time on. Even stray cats usually understand the concept when shown the box and will use it regularly. Cats do have claws, and owners must make provision for this. A tall scratching post in a favourite cat area of the house will often keep the cat content to leave the furniture alone. As a last resort, of course, cats can be declawed.BODY

    HAVE IT YOUR WAY

    Supporting Sentences- examples Lastly, one of the most attractive features of cats as house pets is their ease of care. Cats do not have to be walked. They get plenty of exercise in the house as they' play, and they do their business in the litter box. Cleaning a litter box is a quick, painless procedure. Cats also take care of their own grooming. Bathing a cat is almost never necessary because under ordinary circumstances cats clean themselves. Cats are more particular about personal cleanliness than people are. In addition, cats can be left home alone for a few hours without fear. Unlike some pets, most cats will not destroy the furnishings when left alone. They are content to go about their usual activities until their owners return.
