Children grow up in the countryside or in a big city, both of which are have their advantages. However, peosonally, I disagree the statement. it is better for children to grow up in a big city than in the countryside. The reasons are as below.

First, children can get better education in a big city. There are less schools in the countryside, and most of the people graduate from teacher`s college want to stay in big cities. I am not sure for other countries, but in my country, China, it is true. For example, in my city, most of the teachers are graduated from formal teacher`s college and some of them are masters. But in the countryside, some of the teachers are just graduated from high school or even less. Besides that, in a big city, there are many schools for people to choose, however, countryside just have one or least two.

On another hand, children can get more information in a big city and learn some new technologies. I still use China as an example. In China, students in a big city may begin to learn how to use computer at age about ten. But the countryside, please excuse me say that, some of them first see computers when they go to the university. At that time the students growth up in a big city can use computer very well, but the students from countryside are far away behind them.

In addition, the children growth up in a big city are more self-confident than the children growth up in countryside. I think may be the children growth up in a big city know more than the countryside`s children and they have much more experences than them.

In conclusion, a big city can give a child better environment no matter in education, information and experences. Therefore, it is better for children to grow up in a big city than countryside.
