TOEFL Essay Topic 61 - Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Parents or other adult relatives should make important decisions for their older (15 to 18 year-old) teenage children. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
All you have to do is to make decisions by yourself
Nowadays there are many parents or other adult relatives who force the children obey their command. Of course, the portion of them depends on the country, the creed, and the culture which they belong to. In my opinion, the older teenage children should make their important decisions by theirselves. I have three reasons to support my view.
First, if they avoid making decisions, they can not do anything at all after their parents left. For example, one of my friends said that one day a woman body who is inferred about 40 years old was found in an apartment, and it is revealed that her parents did anything related to her like preparing the meal and she could not eat things after her parents died. This is the extreme case I have ever heard but somtimes things like this happen to make children spoiled.
Second, the 15 year-old people can do anything related to them. In some countries, they are treated as “adult” and they have to make their own decisions such as working and marrige. In this way, they are enough to live by themselves substantially.
Finally, the decisions which are made by their parents tend to be wrong because they are out-of-date. My parents always tell me that you have to go to a great school because companies judge persons by their academic carrier, but it is not correct nowadays because they judge students by their ability. Usually parents make decisions based on their old insights.
In summary, I suggest that children have to make decisions by themselves because eventually to make decisions by their parents spoils them, they can do anything substantially, and their decisions may be wrong.
