Many parents debate on how much freedom they should give to their children. They don’t want to give them too much freedom to where they misbehave, but they want to give them enough to experience new things. Some parents are just strict and give their children no freedom at all and I think this is wrong. Children should again have enough freedom to experience new things. While choosing the amount of freedom you give your children think about the pros and cons.
Some pros of giving children freedom are experiencing new things, learning how to be more independent and figuring out good from bad situations. Many parents are scared of what will happen if they give them too much freedom. If they get too much freedom they might get into a bad situation. If you think of good things about giving your children freedom they could have very many positive effects. Children could learn how to be more independent and be able to stand by themselves. They can experience new things, which can be good for younger children and teens. They will also be able to tell a good from a bad situation, which can help them from getting into bad situations.
Some cons about giving your children too much freedom are getting into bad situations, like drugs or in trouble with the police. Getting into bad trouble like that can completely shape a child’s life and no parent wants their child getting into bad things like that. If they experience more they will be able to tell what is a good and a bad situation, so maybe they can try to stay away from bad stuff like that. Parents can try to warn their children about all the bad stuff. They can also make sure that their children hang around the right people, so they won’t get into a bad situation like that.
