In many parts of the world, children have more freedom than they used to have. Is this a positive or negative development?在世界很多地方，小孩获得了与以往相比更多的自由，这是积极还是消极的发展。
In the past decades, children are required to obey the rules or regulations set by parents and teachers. Nevertheless, nowadays, more freedom is accessible to them since some educational experts advocate it is beneficial for children’s individual development.
Apparently, the free right to choose and decide, as the key element of this kind of freedom, is indispensable throughout the growth of children. Toddles are allowed to pick up their favorite toys or shoes; pupils have the right to join the clubs or extra-curricular activities that interest them most; high school graduates make the choice to attend university or seek for jobs. There is no doubt that this practice is conducive to build up children’s awareness of being accountable for their behaviors and decisions. Furthermore, without interference from parents or teachers, children have to think deliberately and make full preparations both mentally and physically for tough situations that may arise when they determine to follow their heart. Obviously, under such circumstance, the ability of independence and problem-solving can be strengthened, as well as their characters can be shaped as remarkable as possible.
It must be clear that the definition of children’s freedom is not to do everything they want, which is the same case as human being’s right of liberty. In other words, the degree of freedom should be controlled by their supervisors. As children are naive and ignorant, it is hard for them to distinguish between wrongdoings and right habits. If they are permitted to purchase whatever they like no matter how expensive the products are; to watch cartoons no matter how long they last, what would happen on them? Undoubtedly, that is not the way to respect them but to trap them into an awful situation.
In conclusion, as far as I am concerned, children deserve the freedom and it does play a positive role in helping them become productive and responsible social members as long as such freedom is restricted to an appropriate and unacceptable extent.
