Javidgod's picture

Children encounter many problems needing some help to overcome them. Although many believe that teachers and society are the best teachers, I agree that parents have a key role in fostering children. I feel this way for three reasons, which I will explore in the following essay.

First of all, when a child comes to this world, just knows his parents; He follows their attitudes and tries to act like them. As most of the scientists argued, a person’s characteristics would be created by the age of five. In fact, the only sources in that age for a child to learn from are his father and mother. I believe that is the reason why we say someone takes after his mother or father.

Secondly, parents care for their children more than anybody else. The emotions and feelings between parents and the child are something especial, that you cannot find it anywhere else. For instance, a supportive mother would not be tired of repeating one thing over and over for the child, however, a teacher, not because of being indifference but because of limited time, just can do it once or twice.

Thirdly, Parents have good understanding from their children, and probably know their abilities and disabilities. As a result, they can find a better way to maintain their strengths and improve their weaknesses. As an example, my father knew me well and the fact that I was a shy child. He always brought me to different events to make me encounter my shyness and try to vanquish that. If he hadn’t been aware of this, I wouldn’t have the possibility to modify it.

In conclusion, I believe that parents are the best mentors for their children. That is because they are the first one whom a child can follow, and because they care for their children more than anyone else, and because they are aware of their children features.
