ماذا ستفعل اذا التحق ابنك بالجيش؟

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

It seems that the number of people who are joining the army is increasing.

The numbers of people joining the army in the UK have never been higher and in America, the government has announced that they will expand their army by 20'000 troops.

A job in the army is attractive to some people for different reasons; some people might like the idea of serving their country whilst others might want to join because the offers them a stable job.

Young people might also join the army because they wish to broaden their horizons by travelling and seeing the world.

But even though young people are excited by joining the army, sometimes their parents worry a lot about that decision.

One mother told the BBC that she was very shocked when she heard that her son was joining the army.

Now she is positive about his career choice and supports him as much as she can.

Caroline Vincent is another mother had a bigger dilemma; she is a peace campaigner who is against war and when her son joined the army she was very worried.

Caroline said that she is worried that young people might not be properly informed as to what joining the army really means.

She is worried that sometimes young people who have left school without proper qualifications might see joining the army as an easy option.

Watching their son or daughter join the army can cause a lot of worry for parents, especially as they know there is a chance their child could die.

However some parents, like Jane Barff don't think about the risk of death.

Jane said that she puts that thought in a box in her brain and then forgets about it.

Of course not all parents can be like Jane and so there will always be very worried parents of young soldiers and officers.
