In this argument, pro will explain why children are better, or smarter, or even more creative for adults. I am quite interested to argue your perspectives. Please avoid being too stereotypical. Con will be in the favour of adults

Children make up a lot of the population in our world today. Children are a very important part of our society, for example, they give jobs to teachers and principals. Also, children are the future of this world.

Now you may think that these children can only change the world when they are adults, however they can do that now. For example, Malala Yousafzai, and child of the age of 16 recently stood up for what she believed in, and got shot. She made a difference in how we see the world. And guess who shot her? An adult. Another thing that I would like to point out is this, though adults make differences, they wouldn't make those difference without their childhood. They had creativity when they were children, they didn't think about the problems that may face their solutions, but just the solution. Because of this, they didn't hold back, and they made great ideas, unafraid of the problems. Now many lose this creativity when they become adults. But some adults don't, and they make amazing changes to this corrupt world. And without the amazing things they learned and loved as children, this would be practically impossible.

Another thing is that children listen- mostly. They hear the important lessons that adults nail into their brains, and they try to remember it, and think about it. They think about how they like it or don't like it, they think if it's right or wrong. But many adults don't listen to children. They can hear that little boy who is making a difference, but they aren't listening. Though some do, for the most part they don't. They don't because instantly this comes to mind, " What does a child know? They are to young to understand anything." And those questions is what makes some adults adults in the first place. They try to make sure they are in power, they edge what they think should be edged into a child's mind. But the children, who are visionaries have no say. Because of adults, they have to wait until they are adults, just so they can share an idea that could of changed the world years ago.
