Question: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement ? Parents are the best teachers. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
When I ask ten passerbys on the street, nine of them answer that parents are their best teacher. This is not difficult to understand. Our parents give birth to us, grow and follow us almost our lifetime. They have a great influence on their children that nobody can deny.
First of all, parents are very close to you. They give us life and spend a lot of time with us. They know exactly our characteristics and help you develope your weakness as well as your strength. Moreover, if you make some small mistakes, they can forgive you easily and be willing to correct them.
Secondly, teachers only teach us knowledge about their subjects. Our parents can teach us everything we need. They have not only knowledge about maths, literature, electricity, ... but also practical skills such as: communicating, organizing and so on. These skills will help us a lot when we grow up, especially when we work in a competitive medium.
Finally, their parents affect their children's habits. They show how to do something in life so that children can easily study and repeat. In addition, children often take their parents as their models. Good parents have good sons, daughters.
In brief, I believe that noone is better than parents as a teacher. They are more influential than any other people in their children's life and help them to be a good citizen in this world.
