2020年1月18日雅思大作文范文：Some people think that children nowadays have too much freedom. To what extent do you agree or disag
Children today are apparently(明显地)enjoying more freedom than ever before. This is so because the technological advances have relieved children of much of theirmanual labor(手工劳动)and because parents and schools these days are far lessrestrictive(严厉的)than they were.
It may turn out to be a bad thing that children have too much free time at their disposal(可以支配和使用). Without the supervision of their parents and teachers, many children end up being addicted to(沉迷于) computer games or other unhealthy habits. This is detrimental(有害的)to both their academic development and character formation. In contrast, children before had to help their parents do the housework and they did not have calculators or computers to help them with their maths, so they would have to spend much time on all these tasks during which they learned the value of hard work and cooperation.
Yet this does not mean that children should not enjoy that much freedom. In fact, I would argue for the benefits freedom can bring to children. When given the freedom of time and mind, children can fully explore their own potentials(潜力)instead of being told to do things they are not really interested in. If a child has a strong passion for music, but is forced to spend much of his time on some more “practical” subjects like physics and chemistry, his talent for music may be wasted and he will never be happy in life. Meanwhile, freedom also breeds(培养)independence and responsibility. When left free to make their own decisions, many children actually become more independent and responsible.
To conclude, some kind of freedom, if given too much, may be harmful to children, but when it comes to free mind and free choice, there can never be too much of them.
