Some people believe parents maybe a very important teacher for children, but will be taken place by teacher after children go to school, however, I believe parents always are the best teacher no matter how many knowledge children have acquired from school, the reasons why I think so go as follow.
First ,children always imitate their parents from birth, so the parents` influence on children is great. For example, researchers said that parents` expression can influence the growth of their children` character, if parents always smell and watch their child while he is playing, the child` confidence will be greater than other child whose parent always leave him alone at home.
Second, parents are also the best teacher for children in emotional area. For example, If a child feel oppression or feel frustrated in school, he always not talk to his teacher, at this time, parents can help him and child are also willing to tell his inner feeling to his parents.
Third, although child get many knowledge from teacher, basic skills in his whole life are come from his parents. For example, our basic language skill, basic realize skill and even basic sport skill are all acquired from parents. Because of this basic skill parents teach their child, the influence of parents will follow the child`s whole life.
All in a word, the effect parents take on the child`s education process is greater than any teachers in school, they are the best teacher.
