In today’s world, some people consider competition in life very important, so they train their young children to compete so that they can achieve their goals in the future. On the other said, some believe that training children to compete is not useful and leads to negative behaviors, so children should be taught to be cooperative with others to become useful citizens in society.
To begin with, for people who believe that life is the arena to compete. It is true, but we must teach our children to compete in a positive way. The good thing about competition for children is that, they make them more determined and willing to get what they want, and make them develop their performance and methods and do their best to achieve their goals. For example, children at school compete with their classmates for high marks, which makes them get praise by their teachers and friends. In the long run, they will have many opportunities to help them get a good job in the future.
On the other hand, some people see that the disadvantages of competition are more than its positives, and teach children to be cooperative with their peers is much better, because it will allow them to understand and adapt to other children, and thus become more successful individuals and contribute to society. people who can be collaborators in society, are those who have been taught to work together since they were children, and find them cooperating in cooperative work because they are used to it from a young age. In school If teachers teach children the importance of cooperation, it will help them to treat others and work as a team. For example, children who participate in group sports such as football, learn how to work together in a homogeneous group, and learn skills from each other.
In conclusion, both competition and cooperation must be exist in children, where we should teach our children to compete and do their best to achieve their goals, we must also teach them the importance of working with others, because community life needs cooperative people too , that will make our children mature, balanced and useful in their community.
