Let's continue with the question below, which we started looking at a couple of weeks ago.
Some parents buy their children whatever they ask for, and allow their children to do whatever they want. Is this a good way to raise children? What consequences could this style of parenting have for children as they get older?
Here's my "essay skeleton". I'll finish the main paragraphs next week.
It is true that some parents are overly permissive and tend to spoil their children. In my opinion, this is not a good parenting style, and it can have a range of negative long-term consequences.
Topic sentence, main paragraph 1
If parents want to raise respectful and well-behaved children, I believe that a certain amount of discipline is necessary.
Topic sentence, main paragraph 2
In my view, the children of indulgent or lenient parents are likely to grow up with several negative personality traits.
In conclusion, parents should help their children to develop self control and respect for others, and I do not believe that the permissive parenting style supports this objective.
