Вербицкая М.В.

Comment on the following statement:

    Childhood is the safest period of human life.

What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Write 200-250 words.

—    express an opposing opinion and give 1-2 reasons for this opposing opinion
- explain why you don't agree with the opposing opinion
—    make a conclusion restating your position

     We often hear that Childhood is the safest period of human life. Adulthood is full of challenges. There are also others who think that childhood is not the safest period of life.

     In my opinion, childhood is the safest period since it is the most carefree period of human life. A child doesn’t have to care for his own self. He doesn’t have to worry about his safety either. All things are taken care of by the parents. A child is cared for, loved and warded from any dangers or problems.

     Some people however, also say that childhood has its own challenges. A baby cannot express himself in case he is in a danger or pain. Sometimes, it becomes difficult for doctors or parents to understand why a baby is crying as he maybe suffering from a physical pain somewhere but is unable to tell. A child is also not able to defend himself on his own if he faces some danger.

     All these reasons however, are not too big of a challenge, since a child is mostly in safe hands of his parents or care-takers. Childhood I feel is the safest period of human life and the most enjoyable too.
