Essay topics: Parents are the best teachers. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?

amirbahman's picture

One of the heavy burdens on the shoulder of parents is raising children who are well-adjusted in the society, away from all prevailing anomalies. To achieve this aim, they motivate their children to experience the trials and tribulations of real life. Stemming from this fact, a relevant question that is a moot point is whether parents are the best educators or not. Due to the controversial nature of this question, there is not a general agreement on this issue. I am, however, to a great extent of the conviction that if parents want to educate their children, they should have especial hallmarks like knowledge, teaching skills, patience and so forth. The following reasons will aptly substantiate my personal perspective.

To commence with, it is established beyond doubt that teaching requires necessary skills. Indeed, being knowledgeable is of utmost critical importance that plays an important role in a teaching career. Generally phrased, although parents might have a fundamental knowledge of educating, it will not be sufficient in order to make children knowledgeable in the long run. For example, if take experienced teachers into consideration, they have enough skills to recognize what is useful or effective and what is not. To elucidate more on this issue, the paucity of knowledge in teaching career could not guarantee the children's success or even youth and they will not be able to make a progress day in day out. As a tangible example, vast majorities of students who have been educated by their parents are not able to handle problems when they run into huge difficulties.

Another reason that should not go unnoticed is that emotional bond is an obstacle for teaching. To put it in another word, parents start influencing from the time children are born and they always take positive action into account, which makes teaching harder. Going into the depth, if parents do not consider negative actions of their children, they will not be adroit and skilled. In fact, praise positive actions do not allow children to grow up maturely.

However, on the other hand, parents could educate their children better than any others owing to the fact that parents will support and patronize them wisely and help them to be successful in their personal lives.

In the light of reasons elaborated, I reiterate that children should be educated wisely and effectively whether with parents or a skillful teacher. Arguably, due to the lack of knowledge and teaching skills parents could not be useful and due to the emotional bond children will not learn deeply because there is a possibility that parents just praise positive actions.
