  • Essay
    There has appeared endless debate on who are the best teachers in one’s life.
    Parents are the best teachers in the world. Although this is never ending debate topic. I agree with this statement. I strongly believe in parents as teachers. No one can find better teacher than parents. Only they can create the foundation of children's life.

    Many people propose that the most important teachers are none other than parents. Personally, I absolutely agree with that proposal. Certain reasons will be deeply demonstrated in this piece of writing.
    First and foremost, what convinces me is the living skills learnt from parents.
    First of all we learn everything form our parents. They help us to improve our selves and they are the ones who really care and worry about us. For example we learn how to be tidy,how to be well organized, everything about life in our houses. Mothers are the best teachers. Even though before they gave birth, they start to make plans about their children's future instinctively.

    It is clearly seen that parents teach their babies how to take the first steps and how to speak the initial words in early infanthood, which no teachers else can take place. When they grow up, children are equipped with basic manners accepted in society.
    During the second stage of child development, adolescence, parents can still be in the best position to offer advice even though the children might not accept it. In this case, perhaps the child's friends would be the best teachers. Adolescents are notoriously rebellious in many cultures and may automatically reject any advice from their parents. My first marriage for instance, was solely a matter of doing the opposite when my parents tried to intrude in offering their advice. So in such matters, parents should be much more flexible and be rather the partners with their children. So we can see that being a teacher of growing child become more and more complicated case as the time passes and many parents are simply not able to meet the increased demands.

    Can a teacher without love and patience pass down their knowledge to us about what is the right thing to do in life? Needless to say, parents play an essential part in enhancing their children’s living skills.
    First of all, I would say that parents are our very first teachers. They with great patience pass down the essential knowledge that we need in order to join 'the real world'. Children often copy their parents’ habits and traits because children are sure that parents do only right things. Often children’s first wish is to be like their mother of father. Parents are the best teachers because they wish their children to be successful and they do not teach them bad things.


    Second of all, the wisest teaching method hold no less important role in developing a person’s behavior. There is no teacher understanding both our merits and demerits in details like our parents; therefore, they know how to encourage us in a special way.
    It is often argued who is best teacher , some people will say it is the atmosphere and society in which individual grows are the best learning ground for an individual. However, I feel parents have a far reaching impact on their children ; therefore are the best teachers.

    For example, if a child face oppression or frustration in school, they always don’t talk to his teachers. At that time, parents can be a confidant and give him valuable advice to stimulate his effort. Undoubtedly, parents are the best teacher for children in their lifestyles.
    In conclusion, the reasons I mentioned above I totally agree that parents are the best teacher. They create your path and they're the most important person in people's life. If they can educate their children well they can be really successful because they let children to face the real world. They can encourage and teach children to become a good human.


    Lastly, parents are certain to teach their children forever and ever without reservation. It is apparent that whenever you need advice there is always likelihood of getting them from your parents. They are willing to share their knowledge and experiences about everything even though are not paid any tuition for help in all their life.
    Third of all, not only they are our example but also they give us responsibility about life. While you're at home usually your mom can want you to help her for cleaning or cooking. Your father can need your help to repair some things at home. or they can want you to organize and clean up your room. This experiences will lead you to help people, to share their responsibility and learn how to leave all together in one house. This is important because you can not learn this knowledge at school. Only you can learn it from your family.

    Indeed, parents are the most respectable and generous teachers in each one’s life.
    In summary, not only useful living skills, sage teaching method but also honorable qualities are convincing reasons to agree that parents are the best teacher in one’s life.
    I agree with the topic that "parents are the best teachers".

    I strongly recommend that each person should take my explanation into consideration to have better behavior with our parents.

    Please check it for me. Thank you for your look!

    Essay
    There has appeared endless debate on who are the best teachers in one’s life.
    For a teacher in any school, institute or organization is not able to develop a child into good human being. No organization can ensure overall development of children. Specially in recent era, when education has become business for most of the organization and teachers, the only ray of hope is "Parents".

    Many people propose that the most important teachers are none other than parents. Personally, I absolutely agree with that proposal. Certain reasons will be deeply demonstrated in this piece of writing.

    First and foremost, what convinces me is the living skills learnt from parents.
    First person seen by a new born child is his parents. There every action, behavior and values are observed by their children. For example if parents litter in open and do not use dustbins, there off springs will also follow the same route. That is why to inculcate good habits in young ones , it is suggested that parents should preach them first.

    It is clearly seen that parents teach their babies how to take the first steps and how to speak the initial words in early infanthood, which no teachers else can take place.
    Is it? I think it's far from clear that parents teach a baby to walk.
    At early age of children, parents teach the children how to walk , run , sit, eat, think etc. They teach them manners of society. In school they help them with their core studies. And further they heir children to choose right path of career. Parents have special bonding with their children than any other person in the world. Due to this bonding children trust their parents the most. This relationship of love, trust and bonding makes parents the best teacher.

    Most of this is biological development. A teacher could model walking. The clause in red doesn't make sense grammatically. Do you mean that a teacher couldn't teach a baby to talk? Nannies certainly have in the past.
    Throughout my life, I have been lucky enough to have a very good relationship with my parents. They have supported me, given me necessary criticism, and taught me a great deal about how to live my life. Parents can be very important teachers in our lives; however, they are not always the best teachers.



    When they grow up, children are equipped with basic manners accepted in society. Can a teacher without love and patience pass down their knowledge to us about what is the right thing to do in life? [No, but with love and patience, teachers can often teach things that parents are clueless about.

    For instance, they can often buy books on our favored topics such as sea animals and astronomical objects. Little by little, we can mature our minds and broaden our horizons in our favorite fields. (Or are we prospective artists, scientists, teachers, or even businesspeople? Our parents might tell that at our early ages. Consequently, they will give us specific encouragement and abundant resources in our favored fields. Sometimes, our parents can even point out a direction to our future professional goals. Will other people do that for us based on such a solid understanding of us?)

    In the second place, our experienced parents are our best teachers of today's complicated society. From our teachers at school, we can learn sophisticated knowledge. But how can our teachers tell us how to communicate with others, how to deal with strangers, how to behave in different occasions, and how to make important decisions of our daily life? Only our parents, who will spend their whole life loving us, caring for us will tell us how to steer our own boats in the ocean of life without selfish consideration.

    You only need very basic social skills to become a parent.] Needless to say, parents play an essential part in enhancing their children’s living skills.

    Second of all, the wisest teaching methods hold no less important role in developing a person’s behavior.
    Second of all they are example for us. If they do something we will do the same thing. When they respect their family we do the same thing. For example if they are disrespectful to their parents, children might do the same thing. But if they have a good communication and if they are respectful and valuable to their family , children would have the same respect and value. Children usually like to learn from adults. While I was child I used to listen what ever my mom said and I can still remember and use her advices. The best thing I have ever learned form her is being polite. She told me that it's the most important think to be successful and when I start working I experienced that she was right. Thus I try to use all of her advices. While you were children maybe you can not understand how important this information's for you but when you get mature you can see if you use them efficiently you will be succeed.

    There is no teacher understanding both our merits and demerits in details like our parents [same argument as above]; therefore, they know how to encourage us in a special way. For example, if a child faces oppression or frustration in school, they don’t always talk to his teachers.
    Second of all, they are AN example for us. If they do something we GOING TO IMITATE THEM. When they respect their family, we do the same thing. For example if they are disrespectful to their parents, children might do the same thing. But if they have a good communication and if they are respectful and valuable to their family , children would have the same respect and value. Children usually like to learn from adults. WhEN, I was child I used to PAID ATTENTION IN what ever my mom said and I remember HER ADVICES and I STILL KEEP usING THEM. The best thing I have ever learned form her is being polite. She told me that it IS the most important think to be successful. YEARS LATER, When I start working I NOTICE that she was right. Thus, I try to use all of her advices. While you were children maybe you cannot understand how important this information IS for you but when you GROW UP, you can see HOW EFFICIENTLY YOU USE THEM TO BE A SUCCESSFUL PERSON.

    [DO you understand the difference between "always don't talk" and "don't always talk"?]

    At that time, parents can be a confidante and give him valuable advice to stimulate his effort. [as above] Undoubtedly, parents are the best teachers for children in their lifestyles.

    Lastly, parents are certain to teach their children forever and ever without reservation.
    In my view family plays a really important part in our life's and they are the best teachers. I totally support this idea. They are the most important people in people's life. Actually i can say they children are mirrors of their parents.

    [No, this is demonstrably not certain at all, on several counts.]

    It is apparent that whenever you need advice there is always a likelihood of getting them it from your parents.
    [This is a much more rational sentence - using such a word as "likelihood" rather than "certainty". However, you've spoilt it by using "always".]

    They are willing to share their knowledge and experiences about everything even though are not paid any tuition for help in all their life. [as above] Indeed, parents are the most respectable and generous teachers in each one’s life.[as above]

    In summary, not only useful living skills, sage teaching method but also honorable qualities are convincing reasons to agree that parents are the best teacher in one’s life. I strongly recommend that each person should take my explanation into consideration to have better behavior with our parents.
    We all start our life with our parents and they are the one who teaches us the good manners, good habits and discilpline and all these factors are helpful to become a good person in life. They encourge in our studies and other activities.

    Sorry, I don't understand what you're recommending here. Do you mean, "I strongly recommend that you think I'm right"?

    Please check it for me. Thank you for your look!
    One of the most common logical errors in essays of this type is thinking that by using extreme words like 'always', 'never', 'certain', one is strengthening one's case. This isn't true.
    Words like "usually", "more often", "more likely" do the job just as well without causing a demonstrably incorrect assertion.

    Your grammar, vocabulary and phrasing are quite good. Your logic might even be acceptable if it were not so hyperbolically embellished.
    Parents are usually eager to pass on their values to their children. But should children always believe what their parents do? Maybe different generations need different ways of thinking. When children are young, they believe that their parents are always right. But when they get older, they realize there are other views. Sometimes parents, especially older ones, can’t keep up with rapid social or technological changes. A student who has friends of all different races and backgrounds at school may find that his parents have narrower views. A student who loves computers may find that her parents don’t really understand or value the digital revolution. Sometimes kids have to find their own ways to what they believe in.

    Re: Are parents the best teacher in your life?

    Dear Nannies,

    Thanks for your check. I've just recognized that I used too many extreme words like "always". I'll notice this defect on my next essays.
    Hi could you please check my essay and make corrections. Thank you..


    I hope you'll have more positive comments about my essays.

    Be well,
    Binh
