Children are under increasing educational, social, and financial stress. Some people think this is a positive development. Do you agree?
Currently, more students are suffered from overloading the stress from education, society and finance, which is believed as a positive development to make students achieve better academic performance by some individuals. However, as far as I concerned it is not a good idea to cultivate children by giving them too much stress. It is except that children are under a proper stress that make them work harder than their peers.
In terms of schooling, I admit that the stress, sometimes, can become a motivation to those children, who are going to work hard in order to get rid of stress. In addition, by exposing to stress, children might learn how to tackle the problems that they may meet during working life, which is a good practice on school before they start their real social life.
Unfortunately, some children complaint that they are indeed taking too much pressure from educational, social, and financial problems. It seems the pressure could not be released easily by themselves, regardless of what solutions they come up with. As a consequence of that, children are disappointed by their academic results that are caused by the stress, and entering a vicious cycle.
In my opinion, children are undertaken too much stress than what we expected. Sometimes the stress create a huge burden to children, if they can not deal with it properly. In order to have a healthy cycle in schooling, we should focus on how to cultivate the interests of study rather than pushing children forward just by giving them stress.
