|Essay Sample 30 |
Comment on the following statement:
| Lots of teenagers want to work part-time to earn their pocket money. However, their parents are often against it. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that it’s good to let teens earn some pocket money whereas others don’t agree.
I think that it’s not bad for teens to work a little bit. First of all, those teenagers who work can estimate the value of studying. Some students go to school get free education and don’t value it at all. As a result they don’t study well. Second, one should learn how to mange his budget from the very childhood. Otherwise, when a person grows up he can make mistakes that are difficult to fix.
At the same time there are parents who say that students have to study and nothing else. Any other activity will distract them from studying.
In my opinion these people have a point. School time is meant for studying and when a student gets good education he can start making money. Nevertheless, some working won’t make any harm. A student can’t study all the time he needs some rest. So it’s better to work and earn some pocket money than to play, say, computer games.
In conclusion I'd like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support part-time work against the ones that support only studying, we'll see that the facts that support part-time work outweigh those against.
