Modern Lifestyles and Children

Modern lifestyles mean that many parents have little time for their children. Many children suffer because they do not get as much attention from their parents as children did in the past. Do you agree or disagree?

In our times, it is a common occurrence that both parents are far too preoccupied with their work. In this sense, the time they devote to their children’s upbringing is inadequate. Nonetheless, there are those who contend that children are receiving superior education in comparison with those from the last generation. As a result, whether modern lifestyles are beneficial or detrimental to children is yet to be ascertained.

From one stance, it is imperative that both parents become gainfully employed. Time and again, housing expenditure accounts for half of households’ income. Furthermore, staggering sums of money are spent on developing children’s diversified interests. Consequently, both parents ought to focus on their work in order to provide a better nurturance.

From another stance, a staggering number of individuals claim that parents are by no means the best teachers for their offspring. It is widely deemed that children are over-protected by their parents and nannies which, incidentally, is exemplified by a primary student who cannot acknowledge the fact that an orange has its own peel.

Ultimately, children were prone to commit crimes in former times. Time and again, ample research has demonstrated that crime rates are increasingly proportional to educational levels; needless to say, educational levels have been raised dramatically in recent decades.

Viewed as a whole, it is fair to assert that children are receiving better nurturance with the effort of their parents in focusing on their work. To my way of thinking, modern lifestyles provide children with a brighter future.
