the problem of parenting has always been very common. Some people claim that it is necessary to be stringent with children. Others, however, say that being strict is cruel and damaging for children’s psyche. In this essay I will express my opinion on this issue.
Personally, I agree with the first position. To start with, being strict with children is right because it prevents them from being spoiled. If they are allowed to have everything they want, they will never learn to appreciate the value of what they have: be it toys, gadgets or cars and housing. Furthermore, being strict with your children requires honesty, which is also good. If you tell them everything without lying and make them perform their duties, they will grow up into responsible people who are always in charge of their actions and words.
However, some people could say that being very strict with children is rude and cruel.
They claim that children do not have stable psyche and everyday yelling and punishing them would only make them nervous and unkind.
I cannot agree with this opinion. Although constant punishing with no reason is obviously wrong, children should be taught good manners and the right behavior. As they do not know it when they are born, it requires parents being strict.
All in all, I can say that being strict is to be essential part of bringing children up as it helps them to build a better personality and be more responsible.
