“Should parents interfere with their children’s choices?”

Nowadays and for many times, the parents decide the choices of their children. But these decisions are more and more contradicted by thechildren; let us understand the teenagers. So we can ask ourselves: should parents collide with their children’s choice as they always made it? First of all, we will see the parents’ necessity oftaking part in their children’s choices. Then, we will study the drawbacks of this question, and why children should make their own decisions.

First and foremost, parents are adults. They areresponsible and have already a life experience and that is why they can show their children the good way, for example for a job offer or studies. In addition, the fact that parents help their children to takedecisions is useful in order to show to the children how to be in their future life. Finally, the better part of parenting is seeing the success of its children. What I mean is that parents may havebeen neglected by their own parents and so they want the best for their children, and they want to be proud of them, that by making the right choices.

We must also take into account that the parents’attitude can be quite bad for the children and that sometimes, children should take their own decisions. To begin with, if the parents interfere too much with their children’s choices, it could causea domestic conflict between parents and children. To give an example, it could be a haircut, a way of dressing or a tattoo… Moreover, parents’ preferences are often different from those of thechildren, because they are not the same age old, are not a member of the same generation and consequently what they believe to be good does not correspond to the children. Last but not least, if the parentschoose too much instead of the children, youths will always want an external opinion and won’t be able to make choices when they are adults such as political or religious opinion.
