Face the music IELTS example
- Question: How do you think parents should discipline their children?
- Answer: I think that depends on the parent and the seriousness of the child’s behaviour. Maybe reducing a child’s privileges or not letting them go out and play is a good way to punish them. I don’t think parents should hit children as that sends a very negative message, but I also think they shouldn’t send the message that there are no consequences to doing something wrong. Children need to understand that they have to face the music when they misbehave and that they will be punished for it.
