It is the fundamental duty of parents and teachers to help their children evolve into responsible individuals by imparting those lessons of good behavior. To ensure that their purpose if fulfilled, parents adopt every possible mode for bringing up their children in a better manner. One such mode is the imposing of discipline through rules. I personally believe that though children cannot be given a total rule-free atmosphere, yet there need to be lesser regulations and more freedom.
So many people argue that patents and teacher should make more rules and give less freedom to youngsters. Firstly, they say imposing strict rules is the only way of making juveniles more disciplined. Young ones who grow up in highly controlled environs behave unpredictably mischievous in the absence of guardians and may also have personality disorders as they grow up.
Secondly, they point out that stricter rules would make them more cultured, well behaved and sophisticated adults in the future. However, I believe that parents and teachers are the role models for the young ones and so they try to shape themselves like their parents and/or teachers. Hence, any disparity in the behavior may lead to less respect and diminished importance of rules in the minds of the children.
Finally, some people assert that restricting freedom helps in protecting them from the anti-social or harmful elements of the society. Contrarily, I think childhood is the age to learn the good and bad things around the world. Confining them may diminish their ability to deal with reality.
All in all, it is true that we cannot give total freedom to kids, as they do not know what is good or bad for them. According to my opinion, fewer desirable rules and greater freedom, serve the purpose of shaping the child into a good individual.
