They learn all important life skills from their father and mother.
Parents not only teach their children to walk and talk, but also play a crucial role in shaping their character.
Unlike teachers, parents have a vested interest in their children’s lives.
They want their children to do well in life and bring honour to the family.
So, for example, if children find that their parents are always honest in their dealings, they learn the importance of becoming honest.
Such children will not become corrupt when they grow up.
According to some people, parents make the best teachers for their children.
I fully agree with this view because parents are the greatest influence on any child and the upbringing that they give will determine what the child will ultimately become in their life.
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.
