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

Obviously, the

teachers, we
have in our lives in most cases are our parents. They teach us to walk, to speak, and to have good manners before we reach "the real world." More than even the professional teachers that we have in school, parents are generally the most involved in the development and education of children. Almost for sure our parents are the best teachers at the beginning of our lives, which actually corresponds to the parents' role in nature. Parents are most committed and involved in teaching their children; they have a kind of instinct to sacrifice a part of themselves for the betterment of their children. They love us and have great patience while passing down their knowledge to us. They wish us a success and

. During the

stage of child development, adolescence, parents can still be in the best position to offer
advice
even though the children might not accept it. In
this
case, perhaps the child's friends would be the best teachers. Adolescents are notoriously rebellious in many cultures and may automatically reject any
advice
from their parents. My

advice
. So in
such
matters, parents should be much more flexible and be rather the partners with their children. So we can see that being a teacher of growing child become more and more complicated case as the time passes and many parents are simply not able to meet the increased demands.
On the other hand
, I would say that parents are not professional teachers and they tend to be very biased by their love of their children. So wishing good things and an easy life may prevent children from maturation. In any case, parents usually can present only one viewpoint of the world, while good teaching should be based on different attitudes.
Thus
, when children go to school and have a great diversity of teachers, they learn much more than their parents could probably give them.
Furthermore
, once our parents get older, they become more conservative and cannot always be objective in regard to modern trends and fashions.
Thus
we need to take their

with caution during that period.
However
, some kind of
intuition which

still makes our parents very good teachers and advisers at any time. In conclusion, while parents are not the ideal teachers, and well-rounded children will generally need a great diversity of teachers in their lives in order to have a more accurate view of the world, parents are generally the most committed of all teachers and have the greatest emotional investment in their children and their future.
