株洲网教育频道讯（记者 汤雄 通讯员 李佳玲）如今，很多孩子都上了课后补习班。孩子们应不应该上课后补习班呢？我们听听他们自己的真实想法吧。
(一)Students Shouldn’t Take After-school Classes
In my opinion, children shouldn’t take after-school classes.
Firstly, in order to get good grades and then get into a good high school, children these days have too much pressure at school. Parents should let them relax. Secondly, too much pressure is not good for a child’s development. Children should have time to relax and think for themselves. Thirdly, in China, competition starts very young and continues until the kids get older, so their parents are always comparing their kids with other children.It’s not fair for kids. Why not let kids just be kids? We could understand that many parents want their kids to be successful, but it’s not easy for kids. Although it’s normal to want successful children, it’s even more important to have happy children.
All in all, don’t push your kids so hard.
（二）Children Should Take After-school Classes
I think children shoud should take after-school classes. There are some reasons.
First of all, taking after-school classes can help children to get good grades so that they can get into a good high school and later a good university. As for me, I took many after-school classes last year and I made much progress. Second, competition starts very young and continues until the kids get older. If children want to be successful, they can take some after-school classes to improve themselves.
In a word, it’s very useful for kids to take some after-school classes. Do you remember the old saying——No pain, no gain.
