Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? In the past, young people depended too much on their parents to make decisions for them; today young people are better able to make decisions about their own lives. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Human beings have a long history on earth. In the prior period, they could not have the capability of scrutinizing, however, they gradually developed the cognition toward the things throughout the universe precisely. Personally, I believe that young people depended heavily on their guardians to make decisions than in the present time. I feel this way for a couple of reasons, which I will present in the following paragraphs. To begin with, in the past, there was not well developed scientific technology even though there was also no electricity and no sophisticated communication system. People just stay in their village surroundings due to the lack of proper means of transportations and lack of good educations young people could not make their own decisions. They depended on the decisions of elder people on their family or in societies. However, in the present era, there is access to high-speed internet and a sophisticated education system. In the presence of these amenities, they have access to experiences of much younger throughout the world and they can make their own decision on the basis of their acquired education and other opinions. I have a compelling example of this from my own experience. When I finished my higher education from my village school then I decided to move to the capital city, Kathmandu by myself. I had searched on the internet, where is suitable to attend university education? I found that the best institutions are located in Kathmandu. Also, I viewed some videos of the former students and I made a decision to move to Kathmandu. Even If there is no access to the Internet, I would not make a decision myself, and I obviously asked my parents. Furthermore, If there was no facility for transportation I would not make such a decision. This example illustrates how the decision-making process of youth people changed over a period of time on the basis of the sophisticated advancement of technology. Secondly, In the previous time, there was not proper child right due to that they might be overwhelmed by their parent's decision. The development of child rights is still young and still, there is alive no child rights in some communities in the undeveloped country. For instance, My father wanted to join school when he was at the age of ten, however, his father and community leader opposed him to take formal education. And, he followed the decision of my grandfather, and he was out of formal education. Even if that happens in today's world, his father needs to go to jail due to the child's right law. This example demonstrates how the decision-making process of young people affected by the advent of child rights. In conclusion, in present the world, I strongly support that young people make their own decision than past youngs. Because of the advent of sophisticated technology and the arrival of child rights.
