Many parents today have trusted their children with much more independence in their lives than in the past. While some people think that it might lead to desirable results, I tend to hold concerns towards this trend.
One of my major concerns is safety. Life is complicated nowadays with more potential dangers, but children are not always able to take sensible precautions, because they have less experience of and therefore less awareness of adverse Consequences. For example,they may have never come across robbery, so they may assume that this can never happen to them. Parents should, thus, intervene to help their children understand and manage risk.
Another concern is in considering long-term interests. Young people sometimes have a tendency to prioritize short-term needs and wants over long-term goals. They may, for instance, choose to attend a sporting event or social occasion rather than study for an exam that is weeks in the future. Parents should help their children by insisting that certain responsibilities are met before
It is true that parents should allow their adolescent children a degree Of autonomy, because children can learn from their own mistakes and get to the world better if given some chances.But young people have the inborn features that they are always curious about new experience without being aware Of possible consequences in many cases, and considering the fact that they are well exposed to vile behavior and violent images in the media and on the Internet these days, it is right that parent should take a step back and reconsider the situation.
In summary, parents have a responsibility to both care for and prepare their children before they are granted certain privileges and responsibilities at the age of 18. Having some more intervention in children's life is actually helping them become adequate adults later on. 309 words
