I am preparing for IELTS can you please comment on my essayParents make the best teachers.Do you agree or disagree with this statement.Explain your answer.
A good teacher or a good mentor is the one who guides the child how to live a successful life.I donot agreee to the statement that parents are always the best teachers.In my opinion, it depends on the circumstances of the child, to determine who is his or her best teacher.In some cases the best teacher may be the child's school teacher or in some other case it may be the child's friend or even someone else.
Children learn most of the lessons of life from their parents,of which some are good and some are bad.For instance from an alcoholic parent he or she may learn the bad habit of alcoholism.In another case, where if the parents are constantly fighting with each other, the thoughts of hate or fear may take deep roots in the child's subconsious mind.Likewise from an uneducated parent the child may accquire many misconcepts about life itself.These are some of the instances where parents becomes bad teachers for their children.
On the other hand, School teachers,friends or even books have their own or its own influence on children's life.A wise school teacher can always be a good mentor to a child. For instance,a wise and knowledable teacher can help the child to choose his or her apt carrier. He or she can also guide the child in life's difficult situations.In some situation it may be the friend who helps to overcome one's bad habits.In some other circumstance it may be the ideas from a book, the child read, that hepls him or her to overcome the challenge.The books like "Toughtimes never last But tough people do","Positive living" ,Born to win etc, are examples of books which can teach one, a great deal about how to become successful in life. Another excellent example of a good mentor was none other than Swami Vivekananda, who was a guru to millions of people alround the world.
To summerize it is unfair to state that parents make the best teachers.As mensioned earlier it clearely depends on the situations or circumstances of the child to determine who is his or her best teacher.
