A generation of ‘little emperors’

To deal with the population problem on the mainland, the government introduced the one-child policy in 1979. Unfortunately, it has sparked another serious problem: a selfish generation of young people.

Many parents who have only own one child treat them like “little emperors”. The result is millions of young people who think they are the centre of the universe. I think This is a worrying phenomenon.

I am not saying that parents should not love their children, but I do not think that love should not be blind. If children have faults or are behaving badly, they have to be corrected and taught how to do the right thing.

Some parents even help their children to do their homework because they don’t want them to be so tired. How can Children cannot develop and become independent in such these circumstances.

What these parents are doing is not helping their children at all. They are spoiling them and holding back their development.

In some situations, the more love you give, the more you harm you do. If children don’t have to overcome any obstacles in their childhood, how can they will not be able to face other difficulties in the future. Good parents should encourage children to solve problems on their own so that they can learn to be independent and confident. independence and confidence. That way, as adults, they will be able to function well in society.

Of course, Teenagers should be able to enjoy their lives, but that does not mean they do not have responsibilities. Some teenagers are so spoiled , that all they want to do is to enjoy themselves. They and do not even care about their parents.

It’s time for both parents and children to wake up and become more responsible.
