    Comments: Hi David!

    I appreciated the work you put into this debate. I thought your opening constructive made some strong arguments. I'm not sure the Korea analogy helped you much in the debate and I believe you would have been better off integrating a bit more outside evidence.

    You do a nice job in the rebuttal answering your opponent and you sum things up well in your closing. Good job!
    Hi Emiliano!

    I appreciated the effort you put into this debate. It's always difficult to be on the Opposition side of the debate but you do an admirable job.

    You discuss that sharing is good but the issue is with the forcing to share. I think this is your strongest argument and probably the argument you should have developed a bit more.

    I would also recommend using all of your speech time to develop the arguments a bit more. You introduce nice arguments, just do what you can to develop them a bit more.

    The decision is for the Proposition: David Kim

    Reason for Decision:

    For me, the round comes down to a few arguments I think the Proposition side is ahead on:

    1) Sharing decreases safety risks because parents can read ingredient and allergy information. The Opposition argument was that children need to learn this skill themselves but the Proposition argument that some kids are too young was fairly persuasive.

    2) The Proposition side is correct that dentists believe that kids should share and that was an evidenced argument that isn't really refuted by the Opposition.

    3) The problem with too much candy is teeth, not overall health and exercise doesn’t solve the problem with teeth.
