The living standards of average Chinese families have been improving a lot in recent years . Children are living in cozy conditions ,suffering from no cold or hunger . Some people do not think that comfortable life does any good to them , and suggest that they should experience some hardships that may help enalbe them to adapt themsevles to the fierce competion in the future . Do you agree or disagree with this ?

Well, its really not easy to for the kids these days, if they are lead to cozy life, even if they have a strong hand on them as a great future waiting for them ahead. May be you have a good life ahead, later on you have to look after the work of your family, and God knows what will be the level of competition at that time, full with tensions and headache. Hence, every kid in this world should struggle mentally as well as physically, to handle the challenge of their future, as their future itself can be the biggest challenge for them in future. Coming to the kids, whose future is not secured by their parents, with no excuse will themselves work hard for their future. As they know in future they have to bear the burden of lots of Competitions and Challenges of studies and sports. And if they pass all these successfully, it can lead them to a successful life in future.

Yes ,competitions and challlenges are not only that chirldren have to face but all people. The only difference is proceeding of handling these . So we always would like to share our everything including our fails and success . The only target is to make children less fails than ourselves . A successful life is not easy to get for everyone . Especially for children who haven't much experience of life .

You said it right, but I don't think at that age kids have to work hard for experience. Just to gain knowledge, but may be better then others.
