Эссе (сочинение) по английскому языку на тему: Some people think that young people should follow in their parents’ footsteps when choosing a profession.
Choosing a profession is a great problem because its solution affects almost every aspects of a person’s future life. To be on the safe side, many young people follow in their parents’ footsteps. Are they right or not?
In my opinion, young people should pursue their own path rather than follow in their parents’ footsteps. Firstly, if you act independently, you have nobody to be obliged to. You are the one who is responsible for your success and failure. Secondly, if you make the same career as your father or mother does, you are inevitably under his or her guidance through all your life. Even when you become an expert in a field, your parents still know better because they are older and more experienced.
However, there are a lot of young people doing the same business as their parents do. The most important reason is that making a successful career becomes much easier in this case. You can always fall back on the authority of your parents and get on faster.
Nevertheless, I cannot adopt the above-mentioned point of view. If you want to be really respected, you should take decisions on your own, without referring to the authority of your parents.
To sum it up, your parents play an important role in your life, loving and supporting you. You should love and support them in return, following your own path.
