The educational opinion for children never fails to spark people's heated disscussion. Which learn attitude that co-operation and competition should be taught to children. As far as my concerned, educators should ask children to learn in competition attitude.
On the one hand, some folks who are agree with my opinion hold a viewpoint that a sense of competition will endeavour children to study hard. As is known to all, it is indispensiable to face competition in morden times, especially for chldrens who are growing and adults who are working in company. According to the scientific statistics, more than 80% of people claim that the life stress was came from social competition, but it is this kind of stress promote them to work hard and be among the upper-class people. For instance, a child whose academic scores was pretty low was encouraged to compete with those students who are excellent at studying and gain a good scores, so, for the sake of psychology of competition, this children will study hard in order to demonstrate a fact that he is superior than everyone else in a same class. It is overt that a children without a competition psychology can not do the same things to prove himself. So , we need to encourage children to have a competition attitude.
On the other hand, others believe that co-operate is the prerequistie condtion of becoming more useful adults in the near furture, so, children should be taught with co-operate rather than compete. As a matter of fact, co-operation are conducive children to solving one peobelm more qucikly. As the proverb goes that when everybody adds fuel, the flames rise high. A useful adults can't live in sociey without co-operation, whether in school or in company, only those people who undertand to co-operate can contribute more in society.
However, the cretia to evaluate whether children will become more useful adults is absoulutely not whether they have the attitude of co-operation.
In a nutshell, it is my conviction that children should be encouraged to feel a sense of competiton.
