I think that it is better for children to group in a big city because living there and getting use to it will prepare them for the real life. Living in village or small towns may prevent children from fitting into the society.
As a child born in the village I thought life is wonderful and people are always kind as they were in my village. When I grew up and I had to think about my further education, the best alternative was to go to study in a language school in a big city fifty kilometers away from my village. The school I choose was a leading institution in the whole country. It was a great opportunity for me to meet new people and to get better education.
I arrived for the school opening day. Everything was absolutely perfect. I met my new classmates and they were great. In a few weeks I understood that life was not as ideal as I though it was. Students in the school were competing with each other for being the first in everything. It was strange for me and I was drowning in the puddle of cruelty and selfishness. My grades were not as good as these of the other students in my class and at the end o the first semester the headmaster informed me that if I did not improve my grades during the second semester I would be suspended from school.
The idea of being suspended was an unacceptable one. I could not let it happen; I became like my class-fellows – brutal and egotistical. The fight for the first places in the school’s rank list was merciless. At the end of the academic year I was ranked number 5 (five) of one thousand students in the school.
Today I am at eleventh grade and I am still one o the best disciples in the school. I realize that now I can afford dreaming. For example, now I want to get a university degree in United States and I have real chances to be admitted.
However, before I came out from my village I did not even think of such fundamental things. It was just an issue regarding the geniuses, not me. But now I can say that I am ready to face the challenges of real life and no difficulties can deter me because this big city taught me how to overcome obstacles and to be one of the best.

Nowadays, technological development is directed to such people-crowed places such as big cities, resulting in significant differences of lifestyles between people living in the town and in the village. It is said that big cities are no longer suitable for bringing up children. In my point of view I strongly agree that children should grow up in the village. Being close to nature, children in the village are likely to improve both physical and mental behaviors better than those who are in the city. In the rural areas, children and endowed with real nature that affects to the development of children.
First, fresh air in the village provides children with good health. Research has it that more and more children in the town nowadays are exposed to allergy on account of pollution from both vehicles and factories. On the other hand, children living far away from any high technologies are liable to be much healthier. Polluted air is a main cause to destroy the healthy of everybody, especially children.
Another benefit of living the village is that a majority of children spend their free time wisely. After coming back from school or during vacations, most of the city-dwelling children waste their time by watching TB or playing video games. Big cities have limited areas and hardly furnish people in the communities with public places for relaxing such as park and playground. Therefore children I the cities are limited to conducting useless or even harmful activities. In contrast, rural children devote their leisure time playing with others in large open fields or helping their parents to look after their cattle. As a result, not only be rural children so strong from everyday exercise, but they also spend their time in a meaningful way by helping their parents do some work.
Finally, children in the village may become more considerate man than those who are in the big city. In the cities, there are very high rate of rivalry.
