Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Parents are the best teachers. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
My 6 years old cousin started his very first class at 1st grade which does not same with almost children in recent time . Throughout his first 6 years, his parent didn’t take him to kindergarten as many others kids because they strongly believed that they could become their son’s best teacher. Until, they recognised that the kid couldn’t quickly adapt to new school’s environment. In fact, there is a widespread belief that parents are children’s best teachers. Although the statement is a controversial one, I completely disagree with this opinion for two following reasons. Firstly, it’s easy to see that parents are not perfect enough to complete the imperfection of their children. There can be no doubt that people and things in the outside world can well contribute to the development of the youth. The first reason for this point of view is that there are several skills which children cannot learn from their own parents such as communication, teamwork and…. Essentially, children might get such skills whenever they have chance to contact with several factors in society. Particularly, a child who was early taken to the community and had a chance to communicate with others is always more confident than the others who didn’t . In other words, in this case, society and other stuffs in it have become a sufficient teacher to children. Secondly, owing to the development of economy, parents are hectic with making a living. Hence, they are definitely not able to stick to their sons or daughters 24/7. It seems that fathers and mothers have only 10 hours per day to instruct what their kids should do or not. Therefore, most of the time, the adolescent associates with community and is affected by this part of society . As a result, society coincidentally becomes a part which effect on children’s improvement. Although, there are many supporting opinions for the statement “parents are the best instructors to kids” because they can well- understand their kids from daily habit to thinking. However, if we carefully considered every single feature which need for the development of a child, we would see that society and its parts play vital roles for the development of teen-agers. In short, despite the common thoughts of most parents, we need to weigh up the pros and cons of this teaching method in order to find out the most proficiency way to instruct and develop children.
