In many countries nowadays, young single people no longer stay with their parents until they are married, but leave to study or work somewhere else.

Do you think this trend has more advantages or disadvantages?


In spite of the fact that youngsters in the past usually left their parents when marrying, today they tend to do so in time of studying or working in other places. Although this trend has its own merits and demerits, I think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.

One of the main drawbacks of leaving parents is the impact of new circumstances on young people. In most cases they find new conditions harsh and undesirable. And considering the lack of supervisory already carried out by parents these circumstances may lead to doing wicked things such as drug abuse. The high rate of addiction among those young people proves it. Moreover, they also suffer from homesickness. This might face abroad young people with depression remaining many years with them.

On the other hand, there are some benefits in studying and working somewhere else. One of the main advantages would be gaining independence. Living away from home, children have to make most of daily decision by themselves. This would lead to think and act independently. And having more interacted with people would increase their social skills. Meanwhile, it is very likely to see that those children are more self-disciplined than others as they have to do their daily chores such as laundry, shopping and cleaning house.

To sum up, I think working and studying in different places benefit young people in terms of both enhancing independence and responsibility, although they might encounter with some problems such as loneliness and the risk of falling in illegal activities.

Thanks Brian!

I will have a look at this essay tomorrow. What sports are you following?

Some more Irish boxing medals coming in (John Joe Nevin, after Katie Taylor's win yesterday, Paddy Barnes exits with a bronze to a certain country's Zou Shiming), but I can't stay up until 3 am to watch Michael Conlan anymore!

Thanks Mr.Enda  I could say that Id like most of the sports especially ATHLETICS and most of them Sprint!!

 

By the way I watched Katie Taylor's match. She did best and I wonder how dare she was at that match. She showed that why she was Ireland's flag-bearer at the opening ceremony!!!!

Hope to the rest of the boxers win!!

Hey, Brain

 

I read the essay, its really great. No grammar mistakes at least I don't find any. The cohesion is strong and the luxical is sufficient. Idea is great. I don't now how to comment your essay, it's awesome and superb. I am so jealous, I hope I can write the essays like you.

 

BTW, the boxing game Chinese female athlete Ren cancan was lose, I am so upset. But Katie deserve the champion.
