Part V Writing (15 points ) 1、有些人认为家长应该为孩子安排未来的职业;2、孩子认为应该由自己决定将来的工作; 3、谈谈你的看法。 Choosing Careers People have different views on children choosing their future careers. Some people hold that parents should decide for their children on their careers. While children think that they should consider their future careers on their own.

Those who hold the first opinion think that parents naturally have the responsibility for the choices of careers, which is very important for their children and themselves. Parents also think they are experienced enough to make a wiser decision in term of career choices for their children. In contrast, children think they have right to make their own decisions, which is important for their growth. Furthermore, only children themselves know what the right jobs are for them. As far as I am concerned, I agree with the latter view. Admittedly, parents should gibe a helping hand when necessary, but children should decide their own future careers. Only in this way can children have more fulfilling careers and live a more successful life.
