Can somebody write me a debate script as to why children should no longer have to fiollow all their parents advice?? If possible can this be linked to srilankan students because I am doing this as party of community annual function.

Possible points to include (I do not intend to offend anyone): this is simply for the purpose of the debate.

Parents don't understand the modern culture, their advice that girls should not have many boyfriends is no longer relevant because it's normal for boys to socialise with girls.

Parents advice on cultural food (if you could specify this in srilankan terms) is not relevant in England, because here fast food is our only option because everyone is busy and does not have enough time

(As I come from a srilankan background we have some superstitious beliefs), parents advice on these superstitious beliefs is no longer relevant because for instance there is a superstition that if you cross a cat then the whole day goes bad for you, but in England there are cats everywhere and so one is bound to cross a cat.

And such points composed together as a debate speech would be really helpful. # if anyone reading this knows how to write In tamil then please can you write it in tamil. If else English is fine as well, I can translate it later

I would say a few things:

1. Changing the title slightly may help - to something like 'the advice that parents give is less relevant to the current generation of desis/Tamils in England' rather than 'children don't need to follow all the advice of parents'.

2. I don't necessarily agree with fast food being on the option - what about on weekends? Family meals? Dinners? There is plenty of opportunity to have cultural food etc.

3. Agreed on the bit about boys and girls socialising, perhaps you can find an anecdote about someone who was not allowed to do this, or wasn't allowed a phone, or was allowed a phone but was not allowed to change its password etc.
