【IELTS寫作範例】- 玩具Toys

By Terenz Lau


Some parents buy their children a large number of toys to play with.

What are the advantages and disadvantages for the child of having a large number of toys?

Children growing up deserve to have toys and some parents purchase innumerable ones to entertain their children. While some people believe that there are some benefits, drawbacks of having a myriad of toys may affect children as well. 

On the one hand, there is nothing wrong with showing children how much they are loved by giving them new toys to play with. Children love immediate gratitude, and it is a great way to make them happy and keep them occupied. These sorts of kind gestures can make a family feel closer, make a child learn how to be more imaginative, and encourage them to interact with other children while developing the skill of socialization. Also, many parents could use toys as a way to motivate their children to do well in school and help them around the house with chores.

However, it could also be seen as a double edge sword. Some parents need to remember that using this method to keep their children happy could lead to them being spoiled, or even feeling entitled to get new things whenever they want. Parents need to keep this in mind, and children should only ever get toys if they are behaving well, or if it is for a special occasion. A spoiled child could likely result in an argument between a parent and child, which could ruin the family dynamic. It could also lead to them not knowing the value of money.

All in all, parents should give children toys, just as long as they do not do it to the point where it could spoil the children and give it to them when they deserve it.
