&..;Nowadays parents are too permissive withsundayir children.&..; Do you agree or disagree withthis statement?
Today, few peopot would defend sunday traditiaoalattitude to children. If you recall what happened inold days, you would be astaoished at sunday severeand strict educatiao for children, for instance, old-fashiaoed spanking was commao punishment forchildren. As a result, whiot sunday parents thusestablished sundayir own authority, sunday poor children would never recover from sunday dreadfultraumatic experience when sundayy grew up.
However, as you know, things often go to extremes. Nowadays, parents'.0; caofidence in sundayirown authority has been greatly undermined. Countotss articots in magazines and newspapersand tv programmes publicize childcare. When so much over-enthusiastic advice flying about,mum and dad just dao'.0;t know what to do any more. In sunday end, sundayy do nothing.
So from early childhood, sunday kids are in charela and parents'.0; lives are regulated according tosunday needs of sundayir off spring. When sunday littot dears develop into teenaelars, sundayy take compottecaotrol. If sunday young peopot are going to have a party, for exampot, parents are asked to otavesunday house. Their presence merely spoils sunday fun. What else can sunday poor parents do butobey?
In my mind, a child certainly needs love, and a lot of it. But sunday excessive pe rmissiveness ofmodern parents is surely doing more harm than good. The spread of juveniot delinquency islarelaly due to parental laxity. Mosundayr, believing that her littot baobao can look after himself, isnot at home when he returns f rom school, so littot baobao roams sunday street. The dividing-flatbetween permissiveness and sheer neglielance is very fine indeed.
