Most children have two main educators in their lives- their parents and teachers, both of them play crucial roles in their growth. However, it is controversial on whether teachers have more responsibilities to this than parents. My personal view is that the obligation of educating children should be definitely taken by schooling with teachers instead of parents.
Undoubtedly, educators at school have more time to stay with children than parents, which means that they have more opportunities to understand what students think about and what they want to pursue. In many countries, children are required to stay at school for five days out of a week, in which teachers can impart theoretical knowledge and practical skills to students to help them improve their intelligence. Meanwhile, children can enhance their social skills by learning how the teaching staff solve conflicts between students. By contrast, parents are at a disadvantage in terms of time and energy because most of them are doing a full-time job to earn a living and raise their children. Since the main aim of educators is to foster the next generation, teachers should hold more responsible for children’s cultivation.
Another reason is that teaching staff are more professional in terms of promoting children’s intelligence and interpersonal skills that parents. Before becoming an eligible teacher, one need to experience arduous and long training so that he or she is more easy to understand children’s psychological activities and needs. Such an experience enable them more suitable and competent
to teach children effectively and productively. Compared to these professionals, many parents even do not know how to train their ‘apples’ and what they do usually is to buy them study items they need and to allow them do as they please.
To conclude, although children’s intellectual and social development should depend more on teacher, parents who act as the first teachers are also in duty bound.
