Needs everyone's feedback to grown up. Thanks for your reply. =)Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
One of the best ways that parents can help their teenage children prepare for adult life is to encourage them to take a part-time job.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
A topic of discussion at hand is whether parents can help their teenage children prepare adult life by encouraging them to get a part-time job or not. The answer to this question can vary greatly depending on the individual perspectives. But as far as I am concerned, I agree with the idea. The following reasons will present my standpoints.
First of all, I think a teenagers can somewhat learn out school experiences from the part-time job whether the job is connected to ones major or not. For example, Jeff, my cousin. He loves music, so he chose to take a part-time job in a music studio. During the time he worked there, he learned some professional knowledge about music. And, he also learned to play guitar and keyboard there. Things turned out that he got a job in a famous company of music factory. When it comes to my friend, Jess, it is more clear that when you get a part-time job which is connected with your major, it helps a lot more. Jess had a job as a show girl in the exhibition. At first, she did the things the same with others, promoting the products and taking pictures with the guys, and so on. Once, when a potential buyer was asking some question about the notebooks. She used her knowledge that she learned from school and convince the customer to buy the product. The manager found out her strength, and offered her a internship at the end of the exhibition.
Second, no matter what kind of part-time job you take, it definitely helps in your future when you need to deal with people. Of course, the first thing you have to do is learning how to do the things right. However, the more difficult parts are how to cope with your colleague and how to make the customer satisfy. Take myself as an example, to complete the goal, I met a lot of difficulties during my part-time in a sales department. I got in a fight with my partners because of the products which we sold in different price, and I was sued by a customer to the manager because I am not that polite. Nevertheless, after those things I found myself grow up, and be stronger when some unexpected things happen. I get more ease when I meet some unfair things, too.
Although, I am agree with the idea that the parents should encourage their children to take a part-time. I think I still have to point out that there is some different points of view. People who hold different opinion may argue that students school grades can be descended by the part-time job. Of course, it may be true when taking students school scores into consideration. But, if the parents discuss with their children, and make a better plan to achieve the balance between the school and part-time job. This won't be a problem at all.
In conclusion, given the reasons described above, when the merits and demerits of whether the parents encouragement of taking a job during school times is good to children or not are carefully compared, the best choice is obviously stand on my side, which is that it is good for children's adult life.
