Some people believe that when busy parents do not have a lot of time to spend with their children, the best use of that time is to have fun playing games or sports. Others believe that it is best to use that time doing things together that are related to schoolwork. Which of the two approaches do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Furthermore, since children are likely to learn many things during childhood, parents could teach them useful skills by choosing and participating in a suitable game. In other words, playing games or sports is a joyful activity for children who spend a lot of time in it. Hence, parents could teach their children practical skills like social skills, including independence, communication with others, and responsibility. Take my personal experience as a compelling example; I remember that when I was seven years old, my parents played with me every day for 2 hours. They usually chose the Monopoly game, a mentally challenging team competition. In this play, I was involved in managing money and deliberation with other players. After a while, I understood how to save money and communicate with others by playing the game gradually. If I had not played with my family during childhood and not been involved with the play, I would not have learned independence in my personal and professional life, which led to a satisfying and delightful life.
