Children who grow up in families which are short of money are better prepared with the problems of adult life than children who are brought up by wealthy parents. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Financial condition has profound impacts on children’s upbringing these days. It is argued that children coming from

this
view because of these following justifications. On the one hand, it is irrefutable that underprivileged kids are capable of making wise decisions independently.
This
is because they have to get accustomed to adversity from an early age.
As a result
, poor children ought to be self-caring, and simultaneously covering their family’s expenditures by being engaged in part-time jobs after school.

This

for example

Secondly
,
although
these affluent children might be unfamiliar with innate adversity, their families always seize on any opportunity to let them be matured. Students who study overseas,
for instance
, sharpen a well-informed mindset and multinational perspective towards diversified facets of life, leading to discriminating

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
