雅思写作话题：In recent years pressure on school and university students has been increasing and they are pushed to work very hard from a young age.Do you think this is a positive or negative development? 近年来学生身上的压力越发大，他们必须从小就刻苦努力。好与坏?
These days we can see many parents pushing their kids to learn all kinds of things by taking them to various after-school programs. This is because, as these parents would claim, that the pressure the kids will face in future is increasing and therefore they should “get started” as early as possible. But personally, I disagree with these well-intentioned parents.
Admittedly, the kids in early-start mode may excel their peers in school grades, but this mode can also result in negative consequences. Forcing a kid to sit at home and learn things in which he/she does not have any interest at all when he/she is supposed to play with other kids outside might eventually kill the kid’s passion for learning. That is exactly why many kids who did really well in primary school end up nowhere when they get to the university level. So, in order not to drain up the kids’ oil tank, I would suggest that they be left on the playground as much as possible rather than in their study.
Furthermore, pushing the kids to learn at their early age may give them the harmful impression that life is just like a must-win battle in which they have no alternative but work still harder. For many people, this life philosophy may sound logical enough, but for young kids, this is a little too much because it will spoil their care-free childhood on the one hand, and do no good to develop their right attitude towards life on the other. That is the reason why so many early-start children do not know how to cope with competition and pressure in their future work.
To conclude, pushing young kids to work hard is harmful, rather than beneficial, to their future. To maintain their passion for learning and life, the really wise parents should leave the choices to kids themselves about when to learn and what to learn.
