This is my 3rd essay. I finish this piece of work within a given amount of time and hope it is still in a good standard. Please feel free to comment and correct. Thank you!!In some countries children have very strict rules of behaviour, while in other countries they are allowed to do almost anything they want.
To what extent should children have to follow rules?
In recent years teenagers are considered to have significantly much more freedom. This is very controversial as, in certain cities around the world, parents hold a definitely opposing view that there should be tighter control on these children. Personally, I do otherwise strongly prefer them to be less obedient to instructions and be as free as they want.
A major convincing argument for children to have their own freedom relates to their individual potential. Creativity is utmost important in this new era, and children should use their own thoughts to try different things without fear. Steve Jobs, the world-famous founder of Apple. Was very rebellious in his adolescence, and he surprisingly built up his own huge empire at the later age.
Another strong argument is that in psychological terms, when the father and mothers exert a lot of pressure on their offspring, hoping to shape them into an ideal person in their perspective, the result would certainly be in opposite. Teenagers usually react vigorously if this kind of pressure crosses their line due to a sense of revenge.
It is undeniable that strict rules to children return promising outcome in some countries like Singapore. Despite its success in certain extent, establishment of an all-round personal development is not guaranteed because they must follow a definite path instructed by the parents or even the society, while they might never be able to fulfill their interests.
Both side of the debate has its own merits and demerits. In my opinion, kids should follow their own will on doing things and the government should provide more funding to provide a freer and diversified environment to make their dreams come true.
