Which of the sentences below is the best option for a thesis statement?

A. An after-school program at the community center might involve classes, sports, and other activities in which children can take part.

B. I think young children should have a club or activity to go to after school to keep them from getting into trouble.

C. In our city, many young children have nothing to keep them occupied after school.

D. Although it will take time and effort, developing an after-school program at the community center will help children stay out of trouble.

I am really not sure... I think it might be B, because that sounds like a personal belief?? Thanks for any help!

    B would work if the "I think" wording were not there.

    There's a better one. Do you see it?

    I would assume the "better one" would be C?

    Scratch that. I think the better one would be D.

    Because D actually explains what they wish to prove; that developing an after-school program at the community center will help children stay out of trouble. Is that right?

    Yes. D!!
