Writing task 2

Many people hold a view that children should be taught to develop competitiveness while others voice their objection and believe that the youth should be educated on how to cooperate with their peers in order to become helpful in adulthood. In this essay, both views will be thoroughly discussed and a personal opinion will be presented.

Competitiveness is a practical characteristic and should be encouraged when one is still a child. When surrounded by talented individuals, children can be severely discouraged and their performance will not meet the requirements. Teaching them to be ambitious will help them tremendously in the learning environment. They will not give up when encounter hardships and always strive to become a better version of themselves every day. In the long run, being competitive will become handy when entering the real world. Companies tend to gravitate towards individuals who can present themselves as being strong-willed and confident, chances are they will be offered decent jobs and earn themselves a respectable position.

Researchers have pointed out that if a child is capable of getting along with his peers, he can perform better in group tasks and deliver greater outcomes. Learning how to work harmoniously in a team will benefit children tremendously. They will be able to resolve conflicts within a group and enhance teamwork to accomplish given projects as well as possible. In addition, when entering professional lives, people who know how to cooperate will receive respect and loyalty from their co-workers; hence, helping them to land admirable jobs.

From my perspective, in order to guarantee a well-behaved and successful child, he should be taught to compete and cooperate at the same time since these two skills can only fortify each other when being utilized equally. On that grounds, it is advisable for education institutions to consider providing courses on such soft skills for their student in the future.
