Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?

The extended family (grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles) is less important now than it was in the past.

Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

The importancre of family varies from country to country depending on their cultures. When it comes to the question wehter the extended family such as grandfather, cousin, uncle and so on is less important now than in the past, people adopt spread spectrum of attitudes depending on their characters and educational backgrounds. On the one hand there are people who adhere to the belief that although people have several difficulties in their life, family memebers are as important as the past; on the other hand, others believe that familiy memebrs are less important nowadays. As far as I am personally concerned, the latter view carries further weight since not only do people have less time to visit their family members but also does modern life bring them some difficulties which they may sometimes forget their family memebrs.

People nowadays spend less time with their family memebrs. In fact, living in big cities create a gap between family members due to the presence of financial and career issues. In other words, people nowadays need to work long hours in order to deal with financial burden and fulfil their family' expectation. hence, when they come back to their home, their tiredness make them unable to travel to other part of city to visit their parents or uncles. Furthermore, there are also some difficulties about raising children which really take people's time. For instance, taking children to school, buying them clothes or nursing them when they are ill will take a lot of people' time. Subsequently, provided people want to value their family memebrs, they do not have time to visit them.

What's more, people nowadays like to interact with person with who they have a lot in common. In other words, people value friends more than their familiy since they have chosen them. Living big cities provide poeple an opportunity to acquaint diversity of people with different cultures, characters and personalities and become friends with them depending on their personalities and characters. Therefore, people spend most of their time with their firends since they help them to be happy when they are in difficult situation. Consequently, family memebr are less important since people can find new friend who are more helpful to them.

To wrap it up, family memebrs are losing their importance since not only does modern life make people very busy and out of time to visit their family memebrs but also does big cities allow people to find new firends with whom they have a lot in common . I personally value my parents and family members although I amreally involved in my daily life. \

---------------------
Better to have 5 paragraphs with 3 arguments. And try always support/against one side but compare two sides, like this:

para 1: introduction
para 2: reason 1. address both of the views presented for reason 1
para 3: reason 2. address both of the views presented for reason 2
para 4: reason 3. address both of the views presented for reason 3
para 5: conclusion.

So how to find out those reasons. There is a formula:

reasons == advantages or

reasons == disadvantages

for example, we can always apply 'save time', 'save/make money', 'find a job', 'make friends', 'get more information' as reasons to all essay/speaking topics.

or we can apply 'waste time', 'waste money', 'no job', 'make bad friends', 'get bad information' as reasons to all essay/speaking topics.
