Parents, undoubtly can teach and bring their children up as a duty. Some people think that parents in their parenthood, can teach their children better than teachers. Others may argue that parents would not fulfill the job of teachers because of educational methods and knowledge. This essay will look at if parents can even do better than teachers when they teach their children.
On the one hand, parents would be better than teachers in educating their children for several reasons. Firstly, children may strongly believe or listen to their parents because of their nature relationship. For example, a little boy may naturally happily greet other people everytime he meets just because their parents teach him to do that. Secondly, it may be easier for parents to expect their children to obey. For instance, a father can tell his little daughter to get up earlier everyday which is not easy forteachers. Another reason is that children may find that they can only share their personal problems to their parents. The closer parents and children are, the easier parents can educate their children. As a result, parents are ideal people to educate their children.
On the other hand, teachers would do much better than parents in educating children because of many reasons. One reason is that teachers are trained for teaching, with their knowledge and teaching methods, they can help to educate children more effectively. For example, parents may easily find out a math solution for children, but they find it hard to explain. Whereasteachers, with their teaching methods, can find it easy to get children to find out the solution themselves. Moreover, teachers also know how to encourage children to learn more effectively, while parents probably do not. For instance, teachers always explain why children need to learn and tell them learning is an important duty. While parents often mistakenly encourage their children to do homework by a bar of chocolate, or a trip in the coming weekend. As a result, teachers may do better than parents in educating children.
In conclusion, educating children is not a simple duty. However, if parents and teachers can work together to fulfill, we have the right to believe that our new generations will be as expected.
