Caring for children is probably the most important function of society. Some people suggest that all mothers and fathers should have to take childcare training courses. Do you agree or disagree?
How to take care of children is a frequent topic of discussion in most countries. In China, young parents have little experience of caring children because most of these young adults have no brother or sister so they have no chance to care for children. Consequently, many mothers and fathers tend to take parenting training courses. In this essay, this trend will be identified as a positive development in most cases, although it could inevitably cause some problems.
Receiving parenting courses will benefit not only young children and individual families but also society as a whole. Firstly，childhood is the significant stage of a human being. In this stage, children develop their personality, character and talents. Without proper guidance, they cannot fully fulfil their potential, or even worse — they may go astray. Parents are children's first and the most important teachers so that they need to be equipped with proper knowledge and skills of childcare in order to be qualified to instruct children. Furthermore, a country's brighter and better future depends on children. Therefore, young parents should be well prepared to nurture their sons or daughters.
However, some people argue that many young parents, especially those living in developing countries are too busy to attend childcare training courses. Another concern is that some parents cannot afford such courses. Nevertheless, they fail to take into consideration the fact that some measures can be taken to solve these problems effectively. Initially, rather than attend parenting courses in class, mothers and fathers can receive schooling through the Internet at home. In addition, the government should allocate a sum of budget to support those parents who cannot afford these training courses because this is no longer a problem for individual families but for society as a whole.
To conclude, taking the childcare training courses has a positive effect on individual families as well as countries. In order to create a bright future, parents should participate in childcare courses which could be funded by the government.
