Children today have to face the pressure from different aspects of modern life, such as education, society and business. I would analyze the reasons and provide solutions.
The most evident reason would be vicious competition in today’s world. Children who want to study at a famous university have to achieve better scores than their peers. In addition, they have to handle relationships with people around them. They have been told that social skill can benefit them to get opportunities in society in the future. As a consequence, some students try to make friends with children who have good scores or excellent family backgrounds. On the other hand, children also get pressure from their families and peers. At home, a child may be told that one of his cousins is excellent, so he should learn from him. At school, a child might suffer bully because he doesn’t have famous band clothes or he comes from a poor family.
The solution for the first condition is to encourage them to learn for interests rather than scores. Since interests are the best teacher which is a guide to tell children how to learn well so that children don’t have to treat the? study as a task but some interesting things. For the second condition, parents should learn better methods to educate their children. They can relive the children’s stress by companionship or tell them what is the best friendship. At school, teachers have the responsibility to tell students that they should not judge a book from its cover and do not laugh at the students who need help.
In conclusion, education is an important responsibility for the whole society. So more reasons for the children’s pressure need to be found and tackled so that they can grow up healthily.
Today, an increasing number of parents have chosen to remove their children from conventional schools and teach them at homes by tutors or by parents themselves. From my perspective, the disadvantages are more significant than the benefits.
Admittedly, there are some advantages for those children who study at home. For example, a flexible schedule meets the family needs and customized learning plans may inspire some children’s interests, so many of them can learn much faster and deeper in some subjects than their peers. For those children suffered from bullying at school, homeschooling can not only make them feel safe under the protection of their parents but also strengthen their family bonds. All of these appear perfect as those parents claimed in the short term.
However, judging from a general development in the long run, there are many disadvantages for home-schooled students. They can barely obtain widely knowledge as their peers. In China, students normally learn eleven to twelve subjects with professional teachers who graduated with(from?) specific majors. Conversely, parents can hardly offer professional education in various subjects as school teachers do. Even they can hire professional tutors teaching at home, that still cannot compare with school education, let alone it is a big financial burden from a family. Additionally, students not only get knowledge at school but also practise social skills with their peers, such as communication skills and conflict solving methods. It is impossible for children to learn( Students cannot learn, which expression is better?) from their families when they study at home.
In conclusion, education is a serious problem (topic?) for everyone, especially for children. Homeschooling methods can take many advantages for children, whereas they cannot replace school education. The cons outweigh the pros apparently. Therefore, parents should consider cautiously before making decisions.
