TPO-28 - Independent Writing Task Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Parents today are more involved in their children’s education than were parents in the past.Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Living a modern life is different nowadays than the life in the past. I disagree with the statement, parents today are more involved in their kid's education. Because parents need to work more than the earlier's years and they spend more time doing something that was not used to do in the past.

First of all, things are more expensive than in the past, for example, natural food, transportation, housing and because of this wives need to work integrally. In the past was normal that mommies teach their kids in the house after school furthermore sometimes she could go to school to talk with the teachers to figure out how the children were studying there. Today because of the price raised a lot, they need to work making money for this demand. The professors, brothers or another person are doing this supervision actions, in fact, parents only know the results. When I was a child, my mother did not work and she always helped me with my homework and when I was studying for any test. On the other hand, my wife is working to help me with our house bills and my son Felipe, he is 6 years old, the person that helps him is my other daughter Maria Clara, she is 14 years old and she is able to do this. At the end of the day if Maria Clara had some problem she says to me and we solve together.

Second, some people are parents early without finished their studies and they need to study at the same time as the children, in the past, if this happened, one of them, the father or the mother stopped to studying. Because of this, they are not able to be involved in their children's education. Some cases like this, parents are used to leaving their kids all day at the school. They received a report from the school telling how the kid was studying there. This kind of schools are very normal in Brazil, we call this, full-time school. These schools are supporting by the government and they need to send the kids score every semester to the regulations sector. In addition, this program does extra courses outside of school, for example, sports excursions, visit to museums and other cultural things.

In conclusion, at the present time, things are more demanding for the parents than in the past. Maybe they are not able to see how their children's are in the school, but there are a lot of things that can replace this lack of monitoring,

What are above readability scores?

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.
