Bài viết mẫu IELTS – Rich baby, poor baby – IELTS Task 2: Economy
Children brought up in families with less money are better prepared for life than those from wealthy families. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
One reason that people make money is to provide their children with a solid foundation for the future. However, the question has been raised as to whether children from wealthier families are really better prepared for life than those from poorer ones.
At first glance, it may seem obvious that children from wealthier families will be better prepared for life, since their parents can pay for a better education, usually at private schools, and can buy them the things they need or want, such as sports equipment and the latest technological gadgets. A better secondary education at a reputable private school gives a child a greater chance of attending a good university. Better sports equipment and the latest gadgets give a child an advantage over other children when competing in those fields. Wealthier people also tend to be better connected and are able to use these connections to get help from others.
Despite these possible advantages, some people claim that children from poorer families are better prepared for life because they are said to be more self-reliant. This is said to be because they rely on themselves more than on their parents. I agree that being self-reliant is good for later life when people cannot expect to receive everything they need from their parents. However, I know several people who attended private boarding school and they were all encouraged to become self-reliant since they were away from their families.
My personal opinion is that children from wealthy families are better prepared for life than those from less well-off ones. However, I would not claim that this is the truth in every case. Wealthy parents can give their children more and this usually works to the advantage of the child. Having said that, a poor childhood can force a child to become more self-reliant and lead them on the path to a successful life.
