    In my opinion, I think that it is better for children to grow up in the countryside.They have better quality of life there because of healthier environment.They can also communicate with other children more easily and the fact that in countryside the criminality is lower than big cities, is another advantage.

    i disagree with that i think it is better for children to grow up in a big city than countryside. First they have enviroment of education is better beacause there are many schools with high quality in a big city, they can choose any school suitable with their ability. Second children will be active when they live there beacuse there are many places to entertain and study such as bookstore, park, english center, music show and there are many shows for children it makes them be more active and confident. in short, children will grow up in a big city is the best for them

    As a village teacher who live in a big city, I can say that big city has more advantages such as cultural life, educational life. As for the cultural life you can go cinemas,theatres, concerts and so on. But in the countryside the only thing and the best thing you can do is to breathen the fresh air. Does it worth everything? for some people yes but for me not...as for the educational life, you can have more qualified teachers and have access to all kinds of information easily in a big city...Also you can do lots of sportive activities such as volleyball, football,badmington,tennis and etc, and also learn lots of different musical instrument in a big city. That's so for now...

    Some people think that "It is better for children to grow up in the countryside than in a big city".In my opinion, I disagree with this idea.Firstly, the children who live in a big city have more modern condition to develop theirs life,study,work,education...They will be took care of better than living in the countryside.Morever, they have more chances to access technology and they have more knowlegdes than they grow up in the countryside.Although living in the countryside, they have more friendly environment and purer than in a big city but there aren't better condition than in a big city.
