Most children jump out of bed at about 7o' clock every morning. After getting up, most children go into the bathroom. I go into the bathroom and take a shower. In short, I'm not at all like most children. I don't like to go to bed at night. But I don't mind getting up in the morning. I usually wake up before my mother calls me. I get dressed, brush my teeth, comb my hair, and put on my clothes. In conclusion, it’s that way every day with most children. Perhaps some day they will learn to get up on time, but I really don’t think so.

We grow up faster mainly because of the internet. We interact with more older people than in the real life on forums and on chats.We hear more opinions about more subjects and more forms of exprimation. But I don't think is a fast grow-up for these days, it's just normal
I'm posting to improve my English. If you see any grammar/vocabulary mistake in my post, please let me know.

Yes, they really do. Especially your own children;) But in general, not only are children taller, but they know so much more than we used to know being children. It's due to the development of technology and the world in general. There are educational programes for children on TV, there are great books, computer games to help children develop. However, growing and developing too fast is not always good for children's emotional well-being.

It is very true that children are now growing up very quickly in term of physical and mental abilities but the reason behind is that they are getting much resources than that of children in old days .Modern Parents are very careful about what their children are doing ,what they think and most important what they wish,They (parents)try their level best to avail all the possible resources for their children and also try to understand them psychologically

I am sure that people think that childreen grow up too quickly nowadays. It is not a good thing, because children are not enought mature. More over seem to be older poeple than they are actually. I want to add that thier childhood is shorter, so they do not develop properly. Children need time , when they play games, computer games and they have no less problems. They should watch TV and read books and meet with their friens. It is really important for their menthal development. Kids need time when they are not nervous.

{-: I think that children grow up too quickly nowadays, because value thier childhood. Some of them quickly bagin to dress up like adulds , smoking and drinking alkohol. They do not appreciate this time, when they can more sleep, play games, play computer games, have toys and no problems. They can have fun with their friends and they need it to develop properly. Istead of pleasant times, they would rather look like adulds. Growing up is too quickly. They lost a lot of pleasant, and they might be regret it in the future. In my opinion most people do not agree with these opinion, because they afford their children to destroy their childchood. It is not a good information, but i will try affect some poeple opinion. {-:

Yes, I think that chldren grow up too quickly nowadays.
In my opinion o lot of children have too many responsibilities at home and at school.
It makes children more responsible and mature.
On the one hand it's good but on the other hand children can't have fun and they are limited.

Unfortunately yes. Formerly children played on the outdoor and the worst punishment was ban for playing outside. Nowadays I look out the window and I can't see any children though I know that my neighbors have descendants. It isn't mystery that the majority of their time they spend on computer or TV. In consequence they have greater access to inadequate information to their age. It is really dangerous phenomenon.
Nowadays children from primary school wear make-up, what was unthinkable in my days. They consider themselves adult but they can't deal with easy issues. Children think that all problems can be solved by uncle Google. When I look at modern technology, I can't imagine what future will bring.

Yes, I think children grow up too quickly nowadays. Their childhood is different than childhood 10 years ago. Then children go outside and play with their friends, nowadays children want to be adult. They spend time like an adult person. They stay at home and play computer games. Children don't even do homeworks alone, they check every problem in Google. Children lost their childhood, and they might regret that when they become an adult, so it's not good for them.
