Academic IELTS Writing Task 2 Topic 06

Sample answer 10:

In today’s competitive world, many families find it necessary for both parents to go out to work. While some say the children in these families benefit from the additional income, others feel they lack support because of their parents’ absence.
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

    Today’s economical situation leaves no doubt for both parents to go out to work. In any case the effects of this behavior on children is of a great importance. In this essay I will support the fact that how this phenomenon benefits the children economically, mentally and socially.

    Many people are more concerned about childhood depression or family imbalance as some disadvantages of this situation. One serious threat in such as situation is that parents might gradually forget the most basic and genuine need of their children which is sentimental care. In a simple word, children might be forgotten while both parents are busy with their daily work life. Moreover, many people may suffer from family imbalance which is due to the fact that they cannot harmonize their work and life together. This is a situation which directly degrade a child’s life. As a wost case example, I can say such an event may lead to parental separation eventually which has a huge impact on a child’s life. However, I think most of mentioned situations can be moderated if parents act wisely.

    I believe that parents can make more money and bring more prosperity for the whole family if they both work. As a result they can put their children in a better social condition. For example parents can now afford to send their children to language schools which is a result of good family financial condition. Another advantage of this situation is that children can mentally learn that work is an important part of life. Therefore, they intuitively repeat their parents’ pattern when they grow up, so they can pay it forward to their next generations. Last but not least, children can also take benefit of that socially because they have been grown up in a family in which both parents were socialized.

    In conclusion, I think the idea of both parents attend in professional work brings more advantages to the children in contrast to its flaws. Financial situation of the whole family will be improved, children can learn hard-work from their parents and also it has many benefits for the parents themselves.
