Some parents offer their school-age children money for each high grade (mark) they get in school. Do you think this is a good idea? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Money plays a very important role in a person's life. As it is said that every coin has two sides. The use of wealth has also pros and cons. I strongly believe that parents should not give money to their children when they get high marks in school. There are several reasons behind my inclination which are elaborated in the following paragraphs. To begin with, School-age children do not know the right use of cash. During their school life, when they get high grades and get cash from their parents, they start buying unnecessary and unhealthy food products, which is usually being sold out outside the institute. Additionally, It will not only bring common health disorders like obesity but also impact their memory power. For instance, my own sister used to give cash to my nephew whenever he used to get a high percentage. He started buying junk food from that money and right now he is obese. On top of that, his result also has deteriorated. Furthermore,by offering money to children on getting high results, creates indifferences among their friends. The child feels like he/she is superior, arrogant,and more powerful compare to others. Rather than giving money, parents should buy some useful books for their children. It will not only enlarge their career scope but also upgrade their knowledge skills. For example,my parents have bought many books and gifted me on the day when I used to get good results in school. By reading those books, I learned many good qualities like how to be humble,accepting, tolerating,and compassionate person. To put in a nutshell, by giving money to School going children, without knowing its real value, parents may not curve the behavior of their child and children may end up in poor situations.
