2019年12月21日雅思写作范文：Today，many people spend less and less time in their homes. what’s the reason for it? What are the effects of this trend on individuals and society?人们在家的时间越来越少。原因是什么?这种现象对个人和社会有什么影响?
The importance of family life has been on the wane in modern society. While various hypotheses have been put forward to explain the tendency, I tend to analyze this issue in terms of the aspects of work pressure and technological development, and I would further explore its ramification on both individuals and the society as well.
From the perspective of working adults, why the majority fail to have as much time to share with families is a symptom of problem to which I see the busy schedule as a main answer. Living in a fast-paced world, the majority are inundated with a multitude of tasks, which chain them in the offices even if the clock ticks past five. Ironically, however, even those who do not live a hectic life can hardly be found at home either nowadays. Thanks to the technology revolution in transportation and the ensued tourism craze, more and more people tend to travel more frequently in leisure time than their predecessors did.
When asked about the impact of the shrinking family time, it looks to me that it can be considered as both positive and detrimental, depending on discrete aspect. At an individual level, it is hard for me to see this trend as anything other than a detriment to the bond between family members due to the lack of emotional communication, which inevitably exacerbates the already frayed sense of family in modern era. On the other spectrum, more social activities outside families, whether these be work or entertainment, benefit the economy as a whole, given that longer working hours usually bring about higher productivity for businesses in most cases, not to mention the increasing frequency of travel that plays as a stimulus that sustains the flourish of tourism industry.
In conclusion, the less time in family is both the result that can be correlated with hectic life and transport development. While the phenomenon seems to be a curse on modern individuals, its benefit to the society in terms of the economic return cannot be overlooked.
