When the pandemic was announced and the schools were shut, who suffered the most? Kids. Whenever mom and dad make sudden decisions, who becomes a part of it unwillingly? Kids.
Kids always listen to what their parents say, as it’s for their good. But is it a necessity that when parents make decisions, children must agree to them? Elders say that children must always obey them. But children these days are both capable and responsible enough to make their own decisions and implement them as well.
Undoubtedly, online learning is the best mode of education during these testing times. However, e-learning and online education just cannot replace the normal methods of schooling. Moreover, online education can never give you that feeling of sitting in your school and learning. The funny thing is that adults never think that the youngsters would disapprove of their ideas, or have a whole different plan in their mind. Parents indeed know the good and bad for their kids, but the kids should be given a chance to prove that they are good at decision-making themselves. This way, we would also come to know what each child’s potential is and what each of them is capable of achieving. It would also be easy to find future leaders based on their decision-making skills. One thing that children need to keep in mind is to not make decisions that may harm someone. This way one can maintain a good balance between responsibilities and freedom of making decisions.
