It is an arguable question nowadays about whether parents are the best teachers or not. I totally agree with this statement.
In the first place, parents spend much time with their children more than anyone in the child’s life, even though they are schooling, but they spend a little time out of the whole day in school with their teachers, and all the rest is spent with their parents. This gives the parents much room to show their children the right way and how to live their lives on the right path. Also, children copy the lifestyle of their parents usually, and this is also a source of learning. For instance, parents who quarrel and usually fight before their children trains the child’s mind to not like relationships in the future due to what he/she has witnessed earlier.
Furthermore, one would say teachers are the best source of whatever the child learns, but it is obvious how the teachers are much concentrated on their courses rather than shaping the character of the child. And also, since there are many children at an instance for a single teacher at the moment, it is difficult for them to be focusing on a single child at a time. But parents do know their children very well, and even when something is going wrong with the child, it is the parent who will be able to identify it earlier so as to correct it for the child.
In summary, parents are the best teachers since they spend much of the child’s them with them together and also as their lifestyle is copied by their children at home.
