Students' Essays

The following is a student's response to the question, "Which is worse, arguing with someone orfiving someonethesilent treatment?"

I think giving someonethesilent treatment is worse.  It is because if we argue with someone, possibly, we can solve the problem.  But if we give someone the silent treatment, we can't solve it.  I have solved a problem by arguing with my friend.  I don't like giving someone the silent treatment.
