One reason Sylvia should become emancipated is for the gaining of her well-deserved privacy. For her whole life, she has been forced to share a tiny bedroom with her younger sister Hannah. Once while Sylvia was stying the night at my house, Hannah raided her personal belongings and read her private journal. Nothing Sylvia does seems to gain her any privacy, which isn’t just annoying, but rude also. Hannah also always claims Sylvia’s clothes for her own and wears them whenever she pleases. This obvious lack of respect has resulted in almost no privacy at all. In order for Sylvia to regain her privacy, she needs to be emancipated.
Another reason Sylvia should emancipate herself is so she can obtain her freedom. Her parents are very strict and keep a close eye on their daughter. And as good as this is, it also means close to zero freedom. Last weekend, Sylvia’s boyfriend wanted to take her out on a nice date. Unfortunately, her parents thought otherwise. She instead had to stay at home for no apparent reason. If Sylvia were emancipated, she wouldn’t have had to put that weekend to waste and she wouldn’t have her parents dully make decisions such as this one for her. Sylvia should emancipate herself to gain her personal freedom.
Lastly, Sylvia being emancipated would help her become more prepared for when she’s out of high school. Numerous responsibilities would be added which she wouldn’t otherwise have. For example, she would have to pay for everything herself. Food, shelter, transportation, etc. Her parents wouldn’t be to provide for her so she would have to provide for herself, similar to the real world and how her life will be like in a couple years anyway. Sylvia should emancipate herself so she can better prepare herself for the future.
In conclusion, I think Sylvia should emancipate herself from her home so she can fain privacy, freedom, and preparation for her life after high school. Having close to no privacy right now, Sylvia definitely deserves some. On top of this, she’s also lacking any personal freedom whatsoever which would surely increase her fun and social life. With added responsibilities, Sylvia would have a better look into the real world and how it really is to be an adult. Being emancipated would certainly be a good experience for her to benefit and learn from.
