Do you Agree or disagree? Parents are the best teachers. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answers.
Parents are the first teachers in our lives in most cases. But however(Not sure is But and however can be together ? )
they canít always be the best teachers for various reasons. Like some parents do not know themselves what best means, or they may be uneducated, they could have the wrong psychology or the wrong out look (outlook)
towards life, they may not have extensive knowledge and they could be adamant. There could ( I think be must be added here)
many other people who could influence and make a difference on an individual.
All people are not alike and each person has their (its)
own perspective and if that perspective is some thing that is a lot different from how the world thinks then bet you such a person is trying to help grow a socially in-adaptable person. They could be violent, cruel, selfish all these things could be learnt by the child unconsciously.
( it was not very easy to me to understand this paragraph :o)
Some parents are uneducated. They give naive advices and tend to become angry when their advice is ignored. They donít understand easily and just try to boss around. I came across such gross situations so many times. A mother was saying eggplants give allergies so they should not be used at all. Every time her son brings home eggplants and eats (what does the son eat? , maybe "them" would fit here)
she keeps nagging around and in another family the father thinks that, because he has sugar and High BP and has to reduce salt and intake of sugar, his kids should also reduce the intake to avoid contracting it. Isnít it funny?
I had a warden in my boarding school a Sister Joseph Gabriel may her soul rest in peace now but I will remember her in every walk of my life. She is not only a mentor but also an idol to me. She had the perfect personality and for me she was the best teacher. She not only taught me the ways of life but also, to live with conscious, to be selfless, to be confident, to behave properly, to dance and also to sing.
Hence in my opinion parents are not necessarily the best teachers in our lives. There could (another"be")
others who could influence us and teach the best things when parents are ignorant and mal- adjusted.
