    make a decision

    If you see any problems in the following sentence, can I have your comments?

    1. If parents always make important decisions for their children, it will prevent their children's growth. They will never be able to competent decision makers.

    2. Sometimes parents should let their children make foolish decisions. Children will learn from their poor decision and will never repeat the same mistakes.

    3. People learn from their experience, so we also have to give our children a chance to learn from their experience.

    Hi, bosun! Since you have many plural words in your sentences, I would continue using plurals. See suggestions in blue!

    Cheers,
