#托福写作方法课第四节# 【是否应该培养孩子做家务的能力?】
With the progress of our society in the past several decades, our lives change a lot, for example, parents become more and more severe spoiling their kids and always do everything for them. Thus, an interesting heated discussion arises: should parents teach their child to do chores? As far as I am concerned, I am in agreement with the claim that children should be taught to do chores. There are some reasons and examples to illustrate my point of view.
First, learning to do chores is conductive to children's future. Only when a child is able to do single tiny tasks can he or she do something big in the future. There is an old saying in China, a person who never cleans up his house is unlikely to clean up the whole country, which means that a great success starts with small tasks. Take my older brother Jack as an example, he was taught to do his own tasks when his was young, such as washing his own clothes, cleaning the house, and help do some cooking. And now when he is studying abroad, he can done everything orderly himself for those good habits have already take root in his mind.
In addition, teaching children to do chores, parents can cultivate the affection with them. As we all know, nowadays, parents are tend to be busy in their work and rarely have time for their kids, so it is really a good idea to teach them to do chores when parents are doing their chores. It just strikes a balance between accompanying their children and not having too much time. For me, when I was a little child, my parents, both of whom are doctors, were really busy with the patients, but they figured out a helpful solution, let me help prepare food materials when cooking and meanwhile we would play some funny family games, thanks to their thoughtfulness, I am a happy girl and always remember how warm my family is.

Admittedly, teaching children to do chores will cut down on the time they studying textbook knowledge and playing with friends. However on balance, this issues above seem to be minor factors in comparison with cultivate the habit of doing chores, because the habit of doing chores is really more beneficial to their future lives.
To put it in an nutshell, developing the habit of doing housework means a lot and is dispensable to young children. It is not only because doing chores does good in their future life but also because it can help establish a good relationship between children and their parents.

Nowadays,more and more students are criticized for lacking the habit to do the housework.Some parents think that children should concentrate on their study and the habit of doing housework may consume their precious time.However,some parents support their children to do housework because parents can save a lot of time from it.From my perspective,I hold the point that children should develop the habit of doing housework.I am going to elaborate my point in the following paragraphs.(75)[br]Firstly,the habit of doing housework are beneficial for children’s independence.Being used to do housework means children can live alone when they grow up.For example,many parents wants to send their children to study abroad in China,but there are hundreds of cases that their children can’t take care of themselves well.As a result,their parents have to go abroad just to accompany their children to take care of them.If their children keep the habit of doing housework, then their parents can feel more relieved when sending their children to study abroad, as children have been able to get independence from their parents.(103)[br]Besides,it is necessary for children to develop the habit of doing housework if they want to achieve more in the future.As an old Chinese saying goes ,’a house is not, how can seep the world’.In fact, doing housework can develop many abilities.As easy as washing clothes ,it needs children to have enough patience to wash the clothes clean.And cooking requires the ability to invent, if children don’t want to always eat the same dish.So in order to be more capable for the future,or make enough preparations for the possible challenge, it is advisable for children to develop the habit of doing housework.(108)[br]Admittedly, I am not denying that doing housework can consume children’s time.After a day’s study, the idea that the child has to review his study as soon as possible seems plausible.However,I think the drawback of doing housework will not exist if we can guide the children in the right way.Considering a child who has keep highly focused on his study for a day, is he willing to keep studying?Obviously not.Then his efficiency on studying drops.But doing housework can be seen as a relax for children.So if we balance the time between study and doing housework well, there will be no problem,and children’s efficiency on study may even improve.(114)[br]In a nutshell,I am in favor of the idea that children should develop the habit of doing housework. It is not only because doing housework are beneficial for children’s independence ,but also necessary to develop children’s other abilities.(42)[br]感觉让步段写多了,怪不得用时超了
