These days many people leave their country to work abroad and take their family with them.
Do you think the benefits of this outweigh disadvantages in terms of family development?
Nowadays, a multitude of people goes to foreign nations to work and take their family members with them. This essay will argue that despite being some dangers of children forget their ancestor’s culture and traditions, the benefit of children becoming multi-lingual far outweighs any drawback.
The main disadvantage for a family working abroad is that children in the family start losing their cultural and traditional values. This is because they follow the host country’s festivals and their cultural norms to live their life. This makes them away from their origin country’s values. To illustrate, a recent study by Cambridge University found that nearly 40% of children who moved to another country due to their parent’s work had lost their own country’s traditions and culture. However, moving children to another nation widens their horizon.
The primary advantage for families is that this shift enables children in families to learn multiple languages. This is because at home parents talk to their children in their native language and at school teachers talk in the host country’s language. Living in this style helps children to learn more than one language much easier. For example, my friend is a democrat officer and he takes his family members with him whenever he moves to another country and due to this, his children speak multiple languages. Therefore, this skill will help children in the future to have better opportunities in work and business.
In conclusion, under the influence of a foreign culture, children becoming multi-lingual far outweighs any supposed disadvantages of children forgetting their own culture and tradition.
