|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 is good to let teens earn some pocket money, whereas others do not agree. They believe that pocket money will spoil young people.
I think that it is not bad for teens to work and have some pocket money. First of all, those teenagers who work can understand the value of money. They get everything they need from parents for granted and the only way to appreciate it is to work. Second, one should learn how to manage his budget from the young age. Otherwise, when he grows up he might make some serious financial 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 the process of studying.
In my opinion these people have a point. School time is meant for getting knowledge and when a student receives good education he can start making money. Nevertheless, some working will not make any harm. A student can not study all the time, he needs some rest. In my opinion, it is better to work and earn some pocket money than to play, for example, computer games.
In conclusion, I would like to say that working part-time and making some pocket money is a good stimulus for a person to study. My experience says that when a student starts to understand how it is not easy to make money, he or she begin studying better.
