In some countries children have very strict rules of behaviour, in other countries they are allowed to do almost anything they want. To what extent should children have to follow rules?
One of the priority of today’s education is to make children‘s behaviour better.Some nations enforce many regulations upon children while others let them be free to make what they want. I suppose, though people should set up rules in the mature process of children, they also need allow children to have personal choices.
Undeniably, children, by dint of following several strict rules, can live more responsibly and avoid potantial life traps as well. Firstly, knowing that when making serious mistakes they will be undergoing punishment, children themselves have to consider carefully before acting. For example, due to traffic law in vietnam, children under 18 years old driving motobike have to pay much money. Secondly, restrictions play an important part in keeping youngsters away from evil temptations. Facts have shown that no sooner do parents and teachers make light of education than children easily succumb to bad habits, say, smoking, stealing, cocaine addict,etc…African children are telling examples of those who are deprived of education and supervision, committing crime from their early life.
However, it seems that so strict are parents and teachers that their children may suffer mental diseases and try to do prohibited things. There are cases of children who suffer illnesses such as depressed , anxiety, due to much pressure from their family and school. These children, thus, are likely to live introversively and may not perform well in their fields. Furthermore, it is tough rules that can lead to unwanted behaviours in children. The reason for this lies in the rebellion of youth, which means the more parents forbid the more children want to do conversely.
In brife, the family and society need to understand internal feelings of children in addition to giving curtain rules for them, at appropriate levels. This , I think, can protect children from failures in life as well as encourage them to follow their inner desires.
