Full Introduction


Although paid work is thought by some to be a useful experience for children, other people consider that it can be detrimental
.
Children can learn about earning money and gain independence from doing paid work but there are also drawbacks to be taken into account
.

Topic sentence
On the one hand,
there are a number of advantages to children doing paid work. Firstly,...
Firstly,
one benefit of children doing paid work is that they develop an understanding of the value of money.
Full BP1

Firstly,
one benefit of children doing paid work is that they develop an understanding of the value of money.
This also teaches them
not to waste money as they realize the work needed to earn it.
Secondly
, having a paid job is an advantage because children take their first steps in learning how to manage and save money. Many older children,
for instance
, have a part time job in order to save up for something they would otherwise be unable to afford.
Thirdly,
working teaches children responsibility and independence.
These
skills help children develop into self-supporting adults ready to enter society and the workforce.

Full BP2

On the other hand,
one problem when children have a job is that it potentially expose them to exploitation through slave labor.
For example,
in some developing countries, children are made to work full time but due to their age are not protected by laws.
As a result,
they are paid negligible wages for work that can be tough, manual work.
Another possible issue
is that the time children spend working prevents them from focusing on their school work. Having a good education is the key to a successful future so being employed as a child can result in a poor academic performance which can be harmful in the long run.



In conclusion,

while
children can benefit from some work experience,
it can also lead to
exploitation or lower grades at school.

(direct opposite to the thesis statement )

Conclusion
Some people think that it is beneficial for children to do paid work, while others think that it can be harmful for children.

Do (you think) the advantages
outweigh
the disadvantages?
BP1

Admittedly,
there are some basic benefits of children working for money.
Firstly,
children can develop an understanding of the value of money.
This
teaches them that money does not grow on trees and helps them appreciate the hard work needed to earn it.
Secondly,
they take the first steps in learning how to manage money. Many older children,
for instance,
have a part time job in order to save for something they would otherwise be unable to afford. Understanding money management,
furthermore,
is useful when, as adults they will need to balance their finances.

BP2

Nevertheless, despite the advantages above,
I believe children could face serious drawbacks from paid work.
One potentially dangerous problems is
that it exposes them to exploitation through slave labor.
In some countries
that does not enforce child employment laws, they may end up working under extreme conditions or even in life threatening situations for negligible wages. Starting life in this way makes it almost impossible for them to escape poverty as an adult.
Another obvious issue is that
working may affect a child's ability to focus on their school work. This is a concern as only with a strong academic performance can a child hope to advance as an adult.

Introduction
In my opinion, the advantages and disadvantages are both important.

In my opinion, the drawbacks of children doing paid work greatly outweigh its benefits.
In my opinion, I think that paid work can bring about more problems for children compared to any advantages it might bring.

Start with the side that you do not agree with. Use

to start the paragraph.
Two supporting points are necessary for this paragraph.
Tip
Conclusion

In conclusion,
being exploited or struggling with academic grades
far outweighs
any of the minor benefits that could result from children being involved in work experience.

crucial/essential/ vital / critical
harmful=detrimental
become independent= gain independence
self-supporting adults= adults who are financially independent
