I've paraphrased sentences but i'm not sure about words in my sentences

Before:
it is very important for children to learn the difference between right and wrong
After:
It is very essential that young people gain an understanding of the difference between right and wrong

Please help me to check it.

Hi, though paraphrasing can be challenging, I believe you did a good job.
A few points to note though;

- when paraphrasing, make sure that the idea is still there
- keep your focus on the topic
- know the idea or the point you want to drive
- review the rules of the english language
- mind the words you use to stress your point

This guidelines should be able to make the next essay or paraphrasing dilemma a little bit easy for you.
Should you need any more help, let us know and EF is here for you.
