In some cultures, children are often told that they can achieve anything if they try hard enough. What are the advantages and disadvantages of giving children this message?

Children
are always taught by the adults in some tradition that there is nothing cannot achieve when they are working hard enough.
Children
can learn about healthy competition, having perseverance and gaining independence from hard-working but there are
also
drawbacks to be taken into accounts. On the

of advantages of pushing
children
to achieve everything by putting in reasonable effort.
Firstly
,
one
benefit is that
children
can learn about having healthy competition. It teaches them about the real competitive world outside as they realise early that they need to try hard enough to gain any accomplishment.
Secondly
, teaching them to put in the appropriate effort is an advantage because
this
is their
first
step to learn about having perseverance. They can learn to be patient and keep the work done in order to reach the target.
Thirdly
, Working hard teaches them responsibility and independence.
This
skill can help
children
to become an adult who is ready to enter the society.
On the other hand
,
one
problem with forcing them to get their goal by trying hard enough leads to the gap between guardians and
children
because
children
tend to hide from them when they couldn’t succeed in their lives as parents are blaming them for not paying enough attention to the goal. Another possible issue is that
children
can get trauma and lost self-confidence when they are not successful as others even though they eventually are trying their best.
For instance
, while a slow learner studies 8hours daily, the talented student only gives 2 hours of his/her time for studying but the slow learner still cannot compete with the talented
one
. In that kind of situation, they can suffer depression and lost self-confidence as they cannot make well with others. In conclusion, while
children
can benefit from telling them that working hard can fulfil everything they desired, it can
also
lead to a gap between family or losing self-confidence.
