    I disagree, because children that grew up in the city have access to technologies, modern way of doing things(reading with bulb on) and share so many things together which they can gain from compare to children from country side.

    It depends. In some countries like ours-Vietnam, I believe that it should be the countryside. First off, the countryside's environment is purer than any of big cites(maybe except for Singapore :D) and that maybe the most important factor for them to grow up as strong ones. Moreover, spending their childhood with the opened space, be close to the nature, and study to love every little thing around maybe much better than playing with the computers or video games the whole time. It's not you are in the countryside so you are not intelligent as others. Most of the excellent students are from those poor remote countrysides. Of course, big cities are full of chances and challenges, but countryside still my first choice. :))

    For me I choose the children who grow up in a big city.Because there are many opportunity there rather than who live in country side. In terms of education and technologies they are more advance. ledge
