Today I just had abundant time to learn English, via listening to TPO listening set, reciting long, difficult sentences, taking a set of reading passage, reading Amercian Accent Training. But most importantly, I figured out that the only efficient way to learn English is by repetitious, proper pratice with great efforts. For instance, I would like to speak English more fluently, I had to learn how to speak clearly at first, and then find out what I should say within a short time, and finally prepare with TOEFL speaking tests.
This is my essay about children and money, which I wrote right away. When I'm working on it, I used up all my time, maybe thanking to the unfamiliar topic. Paperrater points out that I have limited writing vocabulary, while TOEFL doesn't care about it too much, as many people think.
Question -- TPO15 T2
In order to become financially responsible adults, children should learn to manage their own money at a young age.
When it comes to the question whether children should learn to control their money at a relatively young age, different people hold different opinions. Someone may think that letting children have their own money too early might leads to unnecessary expenditure a child. Even though it is true, there are still some methods to undermine that disadvantage and the benefits of teaching children to manage their own money can definitely overcome its disadvantages.
First of all, its disadvantages can be overcome. Though children may spend too much before they realize what they should do, it can be very easily overcome by guiding them into a wiser way of spending money. Take my 8-year-old sister for example. She used to buy junk food in the stores after school using her own money, which cost a lot. After my mother's guiding, she realized that buying too much junk food is both money-consuming and unhealthy to her body and thus stopped buying these. She can even do more than her classmates, such as counting money, saving money and spending money on excellent points. In this case, the disadvantage of having children managing their own money at a young age can be simply overcome by some guidance.
Furthermore, learning to manage one's own money is a necessary process for each individual to developing money-managing abilities. In other words, some children are too young to understand what money actually mean, and thus they may purchase too many toys whatever they want. However, it's an unavoidable process for children to grow up, especially in the field of personal financial management. If we prohibit children from doing that when they are relatively young, they will lack the necessary process to grow up and may make a large mistake in the future. In contrast, with experiences of managing money at a young age, children can do better than others who did not manage their own money early. Like my sister, they can calculate the amount of money they have been spent and dicide where to spend their money wisely while others cannot do so. Therefore, it is meaningful for children to manage their own money, as an unavoidable process of growing up and developing money-managing abilities.
In conclusion, children need to be taught to control their own money at a relatively young age, to develop their abilities and to grow up, and to avoid the possible disadvantage. In a word, let's give our children the freedom to spend money on their own.
