Essay 4: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Parents are the best teachers.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Parents are the best teachers. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

    Parents play the most important role in the bringing up of their children. In my opinion, despite some very good characteristics parents have, they can’t be the best teachers of their children.

    First of all, parents are able to have knowledge in some fields, but not all the fields. It is not true that parents know everything in the world. Sometimes, they just have a passing acquaintance of some subjects. They shouldn’t teach their children something that they don’t know thoroughly. For example, a very famous physicist can’t teach his children chemistry though he is very good at physics because his knowledge of chemistry isn’t enough to teach his children. So that’s why parents always search for good teachers to teach their children what they need to learn properly.

     Secondly, parents want to teach their children by their ways/EXAMOLE. They are right, and they are wrong sometimes. For those who aren’t be educated how to be good teachers, it might be a very big problem. They can be good parents, but hardly good teachers. For instance, it’s not simply to telling children what they should do and what they shouldn’t. If the children don’t follow, their parents might get angry. In that case, they lose their temper, and they just want their children to obey them without any decent explanation for their behavior. Parents should help their children be aware of right and wrong in order that they will know why their parents want them to follow their advice.

    Thirdly, parents can easily be wrong in educating their children in that they have a lot of emotion. In their eyes, their children are obviously the best ones. They praise their children and encourage them to keep doing things though in other people's eyes, the children should stop behaving like that. Consequently, parents should be strict and thoughtful in some situations. As children don’t recognize what is right and wrong, they do anything they like. Parents should always watch on their children and guide them to do the right thing instead of letting them do whatever they want.

    In brief, parents aren’t always good teachers though they might be good parents. To be good teachers, it is the way they educate their children, which they should be concerned with rather than the way they love their children. 

Comment 2:

    I definitely agree that parents are the perfect teachers. They have superiority over the others due to a few explicit reasons: the connection between parents and children is exceptionally firm; parents teach children filled with desire and benevolence; children spend more time with their own parents than other people. Occasionally, the generation gap impedes the conception of the communication problem or some parents don't care about the bringing up of their own children.

   Recently, there was a survey in our school. The matter was whether our parents spend a part of their spare time to develop our general knowledge. The results were positive - most of us are satisfied with their concern. Similar surveys were held in other schools and the returns were according to the expectations. One week ago I had a conversation with a friend of mine. Now he is learning in a math School. He told me that he had taken the exam with excellence due to his father, who had been interested in math when a boy. His father explained to him plainly and understandably all mathematical problems. My friend was also obliged to solve definite numbers of problems every day to gain an insight into math gradually. After the exam's results he was very grateful to his father for helping him constantly.

    Unfortunately, some children haven't got responsible parents. The latter leave their children bring up alone because they are too busy with work or have no will to communicate each other. A social poll was held in my city few days ago. The query was "Why the connection between parents and children is fading away today?" and most of the parents answered that they hadn't got time to pay attention to them despite their will to. Therefore, they must hire a domestic or a tutor to bring up or educate them. These latter people won't live forever with the children in comparison with parents in spite of that they can be experienced teachers. Yesterday my best friend told me that he couldn't comprehend why his parents compel him to tide up his room every day or why whenever he goes out he should be in formal clothes without caring a rucksack. I told him that it is normal there to be a distinction between the generations, but parents are one of our closest friends and what they do they do for us.

    In spite of these few shortcomings parents always direct their children to the true way and they build the foundation of children's future life by teaching them. I believe that they have the ability to teach them in the most adequate way.


Comment 3:
    For everyone, the people who have the most influence on his or her life are obviously his or her parents. However, in my view, the statement claims “Parents are the best teacher” is not completely correct.
    First of all, the key role of parents on the lives of their children from the early age to the growth-up time is apparently undeniable. Parents are the first teachers and also the most important teachers for their children. What they teach ranging from how to walk and how to speak to behave to others are so important that without these things, children would not be mature as they should be. However, parents are not the best teachers but the best teachers for everyone are themselves. Things they learn from their parents are valuable but not enough for them to be successful in life. Parents are the people who connect their children to the world at their early time but after that the children have to handle everything for themselves. 
     Therefore, it should not be said that parents are the best teachers but the most important teachers.
Furthermore, it should be noted that many children were spoilt by their parents. Sometimes, it is the parents who accidentally push their children to be the losers. In our country, for example, some children are forced to study hard on the field they do not like but their parents do. After so many years wasting their time on the job they do not like, they who have studied on their parents’ favorite field realize that if they had not listened to their parents their lives would have been better. In some cases, parents are not serious enough to their children so that they spoil them and they become bad lots. From the above-mentioned examples, it should be stressed that parents, in some cases, are not the best teachers but even the worse teachers.

      In conclusion, in my opinion, the statement mentioning that parents are the best teacher is not right. This statement should be changed into “Parents are the most important teacher”.
