In some countries young people have little leisure time and are
under a lot of pressure to work hard in their studies. What do you
think are the causes and the effects of this condition? Plan your
response,and then write a cause and effect essay.
In most countries young people are having leisure time for their leisure
activities and they are greatly influenced in terms of studies. Leisure time is
an equally important part of young people life. The main reason for this is to
give young people mind break so the brain can build up, consolidate and
put in order information received during the educational day. Young people
tend to spend their spare time on hobbies, communicating with friends,
parties, gym and others. But sometimes young people do not have enough
free time. As our lives in this planet has become far more difficult and the
surviving is hard, people have became rivals and seek for every opportunity
that can ensure the living, besides the remarkable jump of world population,
work chances are became too little to support these people. Nobody can
deny that the key to success lies under hard work. Thus, everyone wants to
be successful and happy. The competition for success, however, is the
main cause for young people, which makes them concentrate only on their
school performance. Consequently, youths are becoming obliged to
provide most of their time learning academic subjects rather than
socializing with peers.
One of the causes is about parental pressure. Pressure is being put
on young people from their childhood because every parent wants to see
his or her child do well in school and go on to have a successful career.
This means that they exert pressure on their children to spend hours each
day studying at home. Some even arrange extra tuition for their children.
Nowadays, it is not uncommon for young people to spend another three
hours at small private schools after their usual day at stale school is over.
As a result,the whole day gets completed by workload. They will not have
time to even talk with their children and communicate with them. In addition,
parental pressure is the impact that leads the situation to look worse.
Therefore, both education authorities and parents are having incredible
influence. As a consequence, their leisure time is extremely limited and the
pressure on them is considerable.
The other cause is related to the higher education system. The
education system has also been changed to a larger extent. Each year,
there are many times more applicants to university than there are university
places. The result of this is that only those students with high grades
manage to obtain a place. This contributes to the pressure on young
people since they must work long hours to have any chance of
success. many countries tend to have a very heavy education system.
Some of the country, people have to spend almost eight hours at school
every day. After coming back, there are tons of assignments which are
supposed to be handed in the day after that. Obviously, they are left with
very few choices except studying.
Besides that, the other cause is related to personal attitude.
Young people could enforce himself or herself to study just to have
certificates. Some young people might think further education is the only
way for them to get employed or to earn their living. However, every
young people needs to have social relationships and of cause to enjoy
their life. Next, not many countries have good places for entertaining.
Without being organised, young people can be trapped into criminal
activities. Then, young people cannot have time to enjoy in social
activities and cannot learn new skills that can give them a healthy life.
In conclusion,putting lot of pressure on young people is not good
for their health and this problem should be change and solve quickly. A
young people come to life not for having leisure, but for deserving for
success and enjoying the results of hard work that they done. But still
they have to keep both leisure and obligations in moderation. To sum up,
parents should not emphasize the importance of learning to reduce the
stress on their children and the government also necessary to improve
the education system to reduce pressure for students.
