In today’s competitive world, many families find it necessary for both parents go out to work. While some say the children in these families benefit from the additional income, others feel they lack support because of their parents’ absence. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.
Modern world is changing families’ structure and shape. Many mothers have to work to address financial issues. Although some individuals hold the view that working of both parents may cause problems in children upbringing, others believe parents can pay enough attention to their children as well as work outside. Some argue that working of both parents is not good for children because of some important reasons. At first, their children may lack appropriate upbringing. Parents don’t spend enough time for children. Thus, they can’t teach children necessary life lessons. This lack may direct children to criminal activities. In addition, children may get moral sicknesses. It is because they feel lonely, without any support in times of crisis. This loneliness degrades their self-confidence and self-esteem and adversely affect their future life. However, opponents are of the opinion that both parents can work outside without any problems at home. To begin, they say parents can adjust their daily hours to have enough time for their children. Mothers or both parents can work part-time. They can also make an accurate daily plan for all family members to use their time more efficiently. Furthermore, children can enroll in necessary courses which cover their educational needs to both life and school skills. Working parents can afford extra courses. To conclude, though some people believe working of both parents is not useful for children, others don’t hold such view. In my opinion, the career of both parents is necessary only if it does not harm children’s life in any way. Providing necessary facilities and support for children’s progress needs enough resources. Therefore, I personally believe both parents should work outside if providing said resources requires it.
