Some people believe that parents are the best teachers of their children. In my opinion, I do not agree with this statement. Because parents treat their children with strong emotion, and they often educate their children according to their expectation or value.
The main reason for my view is that parents treat their children emotionally. Since parents have very close relationship with their children, they are always very care for everything of children. So they often limit their children`s freedom or activity in the name of safety. For example, some teachers encourage their students to take a travel abroad or take part in some excited sport such as climbing. They think these activities can enrich the experience, cultivate the independent character. However, It might seem too dangers to parents.
Another reason for my view is that parents often cultivate their children according to their expectation. Some parents thought that the career of doctor has a promising future, so they forced their children enter medicine school regardless of children`s feeling. Sometimes parents urge their children accept their value, although these values might be outdated. On the other hand, the parents also teach us much, they teach us how to speak, how to walk, how to deal with the life. So I acknowledged that parents are very important teachers, but I do not think they are best teachers.
Based all these reasons and examples, I disagree with the statement that parents are the best teachers.
