1. Firm discipline in teaching kids. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

Teaching kids to become useful citizens is far from easy. Some people claim that the imposition of firm discipline in educating children proves essential while other see it as a counter-productive method. I am convinced by the latter view. It is first argued that with discipline, children are taught to be inculcated with decorous behavior. But can kids truly learn something under the control of a rod? So scare are children that they hardly grow aware of what is wrong with their action. They automatically behavior according to moral line every time the rod is raised by parents without their profound understanding and critical thinking of their problematic actions. Another reason in favor of strict discipline in righting kids towards desired behavior is to shun kids away from social evils. Nowadays, such influence from peer pressure and unwanted temptations can lure kids into a lure of darkness. It should be noted, however, that there exists so-called generation gap which somehow hampers mutual understanding between parents and kids.

Equally important, discipline is shown as the effective way to build a lawful society where each citizen is responsible for every wrong action. Can a society genuinely thrive in case of having parents, for sake of instilling into kids moral lessons through both physical and verbal abuse, resort to the drastic discipline? Nor can the society be labeled as civilized when children’s right is violated. Also, according to social statistics, a number of kids whose parents often implement strong discipline like violence in their education are likely to imitate such behavior in their later life while the rest grow up in fear, autism and turn passive, unconfident.

Some people believe that parents still play a primary role in kids’ education accomplishment while others rest on teachers as the impetus for kids to obtain outstanding achievements. despite his grave illness. with their unconditional love. friends and others could influence kids at times in their life while no matter how they are. but it cannot be denied that parents still our first and last teachers in our lifetime from basic lessons like eating.2.

But it is irrefutable that family tradition still holds a crucial role in motivating kids to try their utmost.
