Parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts. What is your opinion? Support it with personal examples.

Parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts. What is your opinion? Support it with personal examples. (295 words)

Parenting is a vital role in molding the behaviors of the children. Sometimes kids behave in an unacceptable and unpredictable manner which they might have learnt from their parents.Some people think that parents are responsible for their children’s behaviors, while others argue that parents cannot take responsibility for their children’s attitudes.I am inclined to believe that parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts. The following paragraphs will analyze the impacts of kids’ behaviors and suggest the importance of parent’s role in raising their children.

First of all, children are like a sponge, they absorb and imitate everything they observe. Further, they spend more time with their parents in childhood. So mostly they learn language, culture and manners by observing their parents.If parents are having faith and good habits, their children will become more likely with vision in life and have good habits.For instance, after Thomas Alva Edison’s school teacher called him mentally ill in a letter, Edison’s mother hid the letter from the young inventor and homeschooled him so that he could reach his full potential.

Second of all, are responsible parenting involves not only taking care of children’s basic needs but also teaching social behavior and discipline to them. Furthermore, parents should take accountability for the damages caused by their children in the society. For example, the leading actor Jackie Chan had taken responsibility for his son’s drug use and apologized to public on behalf of him by telling that he failed to be a good father.

In conclusion, the foregoing discussion propounds the view that the parents are solely and legally responsible for their children’s act.Further, it is expected that the people make cognizance of the fact and teach their children good values and moral responsibilities.

Discuss both sides of Space travel vs. current crucial problems faced by human?

Discuss both sides of Space travel vs. current crucial problems faced by humans?

Every year, many countries spend billions of dollars for space research. While this research has some hope for the involved scientists, the huge investment in such research is highly questionable, especially in developing and underdeveloped countries. Some people think that it is unnecessary to spend money for space research than dealing with crucial problems such as overpopulation, while others argue that the space research has benefited the society lot. This essay will elaborate on both ideas and come to a logical conclusion.

On one hand, space research brings knowledge, discoveries and improvements in our daily life.It helped tremendously in weather forecasting, education and security of the country. Further, the space explorations are being conducted by many countries to research and find the possibility of extra-terrestrial species and natural resources in other planets. For instance, NASA has found the evidence of water in Mars and it is conducting further research on it.

On the other hand, people in some countries are still facing crucial problems like overpopulation, lack of food, clean water and electricity. Instead of spending more money in space travel, the developed countries should think morally and ethically to help under developed countries. For example, many people in African countries are suffering from Ebola virus infection, drought and terrorism and lot of innocent people are dying every year. If US government decides to spend money to help, these devastating problems can be eradicated soon.

In conclusion, the foregoing discussion propounds the view that the over spending of tax payers’ money to space travel will not improve the quality of human life. Further, it is expected that the people make cognizance of the fact and urge their government to focus several more urgent issues that need to be funded.
