SCore : 5.0Originally Posted by amiomanushDo you agree or disagree with the following statement? Classmates are a more important influence than parents on a childís success in school. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
There are several kinds of influences behind the success of a child. If somebody asks my consent whether classmates are more influential to a child than parents, I will definitely choose parents as the most important influence behind a child's success in school. That is why because I consider some worth saying points in favor of parentsí role.
[Fair start. Use plain words.]
A child passes only three or four hours a day in the school. On the other hand the rest of the day and night time parents are his best friends. A child, having a soft mind, is influenced by his parents mostly as he passes his maximum time with parents. If a mother/father is serious, it is no wonder that the child will be serious in his study. So if the parents of that child ask him to follow a nice routine in home, he can be well organized and be motivated to the victory.
In addition to this, home tutors effect greatly in a child's success in school. A young kid faces some problem understanding his lesson in the class. It is the parents who can provide a child a good tutor for sharpening his understanding capabilities. Truly speaking, other than a home tutor parents can be a great tutor for him as well as a great mentor.
They can understand theirs kid's psychology best.
Besides, timeliness is a key factor in a studentís life. Good guidance from parents can help the child a lot to maintain his school time. A good student always maintains his school time and it is the parents and not the classmates who can bring a child to the school in time.
Finally, success depends on communication because study is also very competitive nowadays. A good communicative father and mother can not only discover their childís weakness, but also can emphasize on what to study in what time. it is the concerned parents who always keep a good relation with both the teachers of the school and parents of good students. This kind of sharing can be really effective.
Therefore, it is the parents who can play a vital role besides the success of a child. Of course the classmates of a child play some important role to his success but it cannot exceed the importance of parents in a child's student life. They are the most effective influence for the success of children.
