Essay topic: Dating is a necessary part of growing up for a teenager. Is dating a truly necessary part of growing up for a teenager? Do you want a teenager to suffer through heart breaks, relationship problems and physical or mental damage?

If we don't get that much socialization at home, then socialization will happen at school, or just going to your local supermarket and saying "hi" to the cashier.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

This is a good piece of writing which is well written and shows evidence of careful planning in its structure. Effective use of listing and rhetorical questions make it a convincing piece of work. Wide vocabulary nearly always adds to the writing.
However more statistics and proof to back up statements would make this essay more convincing and a more obvious conclusion is needed.
