Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Nowadays, it is better for children to grow up in the countryside than in a large city. Use specific reasons and examples to develop your essay.

Childhood shapes the personality of any person. Some people believe that growing up in big city is better as a child because of the variety of opportunity they get in big cities. I strongly believe that small towns are much better place for childhood than a big city. In this easy I will provide 2 reason to support my stance backed with some personal experiences. To begin with, childhood in small cities is more peaceful and organic. In big cities children have so much opportunities, they can learn many things apart from studies like they can attend dance class, singing class etc, which definitely help in their personal growth. In my views having too much options at such a young age are also not a good thing, it stops you from exploring the inner self, without exploring yourself you can’t find what you like to do the most. From my personal experiences, in my childhood I wanted to become cricketer but there was no facility available for training, so I have to travel for about 5 km daily to attend the training camp. This drawback made me more focus for my training classes and eliminated any non-seriousness I have. Children of small town have to think thousand times to do any things apart from studies, so they choose to do those things which they like the most and avoid doing things half-heartedly. Secondly, children from small town are more attached towards nature. The climate of countryside is always better than big cities. Children of small town spend their most of the time in a nature and are rarely surrounded by big buildings and heavy traffic hence they are calmer and more relaxed. From my personal experience, once I got a chance to visit Delhi, people there are so aggressive and the traffic is so messed up. When I visited there, I learned the concept of road rage, people are fighting on road for small things and are not patient at all. These messy things also impact mental health badly on the other hand the life in small cities is so peaceful and calming. In conclusion, I strongly believe that spending childhood in countryside is way better than in big cities because it helps you to explore your inner self and it make you a more patient and mature person.
