Some people think that children should begin their formal education at a very early age and should spend most of their time on school studies; others believe that young children should spend most of their time playing. I like the second idea much better than the first one.
I am a Chinese student. In China, children begin their formal education at a very early age. The children spend thier study from 7:30 to 5:30, expect two hours lunch time. It almost eight hours at school. The children do not have enough time to play and rest. The children do not like a children, but a old adult. It is a terrible time. The children will do like this almost 12 years. They do not have fun in theri life.
Playing is the most of the time for children. Children can learn a lot of from play. Personally, I think the children learn the knowledge more easily than from their school studies and the children will remember it for a longer time. The children will learn the new knowledge and at the same time to play to enjoy their life.
My opinion, for this one is children should spend most of theri time playing. The reason is sample, as I write in this essay, I begin my formal education at five years old. From then on, I do not have childhood. I spend most of my time for school work and homework. It is terrible, until I go to unversity. I do not think children can get good knowledge from the formal education. It is just let the children lost their childhood.
In conclusion, formal education is useful, but not for the early age children. The children should have time to play, they should enjoy their life.
