Some people think parents should read or tell stories to children. Others think parents needn’t do that as children can read books or watch TV, movies by themselves. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
In current society, people are cynical about whether parents should read stories to their children or let children gain information through books, TV and movies by themselves. In my opinion, it is a better method for children to obtain information through their own efforts.
On the one hand, the outcomes of reading by parents can be very rewarding, through which children can acquire knowledge more easily and smoothly. That is to say, in the process of reading, parents may provide children with detailed explanations. For instance, when children are confused about the differences of pandas and bears, parents can explain the differences from habits and characteristics, and through this, children can gain a better understanding of knowledge and maybe foster the love of reading.
However, the purpose of reading books or watching TV is never just confined to acquire knowledge or information. Apart from this, children can develop their autonomy in information obtaining and since this process is self-paced they can develop their time management skills and personality such as persistence, all of which is beneficial for their future study and career. What is more, a large number of parents are so busy that the time spent on reading for their children is limited and if children read books or watch TV, movies by themselves, they are more likely to read extensively and they will be more prepared when they encounter any problem in other fields in the future.
To sum up, while it is much simple for children to acquire knowledge if their parents read for them, I believe students can benefit more in the long term if they develop the skill of reading independently.
