Writing task 2

A common perception among some people is that competing with other children should be encouraged. Other people oppose this idea and say that teaching co-operation is the better option to make them more useful. While both the point of view have some merits, I believe co-operation with others is the better method to make them better grownups. Co-operation with peers teaches interection and teamwork, grows empathy towards others, and makes them more social.

A way of parenting puts light on the competition with other children. People often encourage kids to compete with others while learning something. They believe the sense of competition motivates the child to learn faster. To be better than other kids, children need to give their best at anything they do. Seeing someone's achievement, you get automatic motivation to work harder due to your competitiveness. This frequent urge to be better than your peers pushes every kid to aim higher, and each of them becomes the motivation to another. This kind of healthy competition can accelerate a kid's development.

Another method is being co-operative. This method preaches the children should connect and co-operate with each other in any common learning places. Everyone will learn collectively, and the sense of competition is absent here. For example, children maybe given a task or puzzle that require teamwork to complete. Completing this task will not only teach teamwork but also teach them to lead or play a specific role. This co-operative environment enables the social interection among kids as well as grows empathy. Generally, these children tend to have a wider acceptance range than others.

In conclusion, I prefer co-operative environment because we live in a society that requires social interactions and teamwork. Competitiveness can be a good trait but co-operation will push someone to be more of a team player. So, it is evident that a co-operative child has higher chances of being useful to the society than a competitive minded child.
