It is better for children to grow up in the countryside than in a big city. Do you agree or disagree? Use specific reasons and examples to develop your essay.

(a) I was born in a small, quiet and peaceful village. Like other children in the village, I hope that one day I will live in a big city. Because I think that it is better for children to grow up in a big city than in the countryside. There are many advantages when living in a big city. Firstly, the infrastructure in big city is much better than in the countryside, so the life there is more convenient. There are many highways and long, big bridges, which make transportation easier. With so may transport means such as taxi, family car, bus, cycle… it is very easy for you to go anywhere at any time. Along busy streets are tall, beautiful buildings. They are hotels, restaurants, embassies, hospitals, schools, private village big schools, big hospitals equipped with modern facilities make the study and treating disease more effective. Living in big cities, children have good opportunities to learn in good schools and examine in good hospitals. In entertainment centre, there are many games to develop children’ body including physical games and intellectual ones. Children can play there after hard periods in class. In big cities, telecommunications are also completed. Children can access with new technology easily. It’s wonderful to live in big city. That’s reason why I wanted to stay in my uncle’s house in Hanoi, capital of Vietnam, when I visited her at the children’ age.

Secondly, big cities are not only economic centers but also social, cultural ones of a country. People here are active, polite, and intelligent… They are always busy with their work. It’s good for children to get acquainted with people like them. Children can learn more from life in big cities than in the countryside. The life is hard and difficult, so it’s good to adapt to it when you are children. The life in city helps children to have beautiful dream and have chance to make these dream come true.

Although there are also disadvantages in big cities such as social evils, environmental pollution, and noise… living in big cities is still dream of many people. It is better for children to grow up in big cities and have weekends in the countryside enjoying fresh air than live in the countryside and rarely come to city. In brief, children can develop comprehensively when living in big city.

(B) There is no doubt that a selection of the suitable place in which children can grow up represents an important aim towards parents nowadays. Many people debate whether children may grow up in the countryside or in a big city. Some people argue that children have to grow up in the villages for many different reasons. Others believe that children may grow up in a big city for many aspects. However before one decides to support or oppose one of the above two opinion, he/she should carefully consider the all aspects and reasons concern that subject.

Children have to grow up in the countryside for many different reasons. First, the countryside contains vast green areas of fields. These fields take part in purification the air from any pollution; consequently, children can breathe fresh and healthy air. Second, Parents may not worry about their children when they are playing in the farms and fields. This is because; there is no any dangerous thing, such as cars, trains or uncovered electric wires that may hurt children in these fields. Third, living in the countryside may stimulate the hide talents of children. For example, children may like to draw or paint what they see; therefore the viewing of green land may make children how to express themselves by drawing and painting.

On the other hand, children may grow up in a big city for many aspects. First, parents may want their children to grow in the urban city to let them live in feel the prosperity and advancement of their country second by second from the beginning of their life. Second, living in the big city may make the growing of children so easy. For example, in the big city parents can find a suitable baby care center for their children easily. They can also find modern schools in which their children can go. Third, parents can find excellent hospitals in which their children can go if they get sick.

Even though growing it is better for children to grow up in the countryside or village for many different reasons, children may grow up in the big city for other aspects. In my own opinion, I believe that it is better for children to grow up in the big city for the following reasons. First, in the big city a mother can find easily a reliable person who loves her kids during her work outside the home. Second, living in the urban city may help children in growing in a social atmosphere. For example, in the big city there are a lot of children who can play together. In conclusion, growing of children in the big city is better than the countryside. At last, can you imagine the population density in the big city if all parents suddenly decide to leave the city and go to the countryside to let their children grow up there? Of course, I know your answer!!!

(c) Some people prefer living in a big city; others enjoy residing in a small town or in the countryside. Children usually do not have a choice and live where their parents choose to live. Both living in a big city and living in the countryside have some advantages and disadvantages for children’s development. In my opinion, living in a big city is more beneficial for children because it offers more choices in education, services and fun activities.

Most of us agree that education is crucial for our children. Often, when a family resides in the countryside, there is only one neighborhood school in the area. On the contrary, there are plenty of educational choices in a big city: French schools, private schools, Montessori centers, and, of cause public school.

Another reason for me to believe that living in a big city is better for children is a higher level of availability of different services. From my personal experience of living in a small town in northern Ontario I can say that it was a problem to find a dentist or family physician in the area, so we had to travel up to fifty kilometers in order to get help.

Last, but not least is that living in a big city offers a variety of extracurricular activities: sports, arts, hobby clubs, dance schools, gyms, and many more. I strongly believe that those activities are very important for children’s development.

In conclusion, no doubts that living in the countryside have some advantages; however, in my opinion, growing children are much more benefited living in a big city. They have more opportunities to get good education, to receive services they need, and to have quality fun time.
