Do you agree that parents are the best teachers? Some say it's experience.

Both are influential to one's growth. But let me make a stand on this. Parents are our first teachers and they for me are the best teachers. Even if they're good or bad parents, they greatly influence their children by setting an example. So if they're good parents, they're the best in teaching good ethics to their kids and if they're bad parents they're best at teaching bad things to their kids... that makes them the best teachers. Also, experiences in one's life are greatly influenced by parents too. Especially when one is still young and his decisions mostly depends on his parents, thus, his experiences in life depends on his parents too. One thing is for sure, my Mom is the best teacher in the world! She taught me how to become strong in all the sad things that has been happening in my life, she taught me to be contented in what God has given me and be thankful of them. She taught me to trust and believe God as He loves me and will help me survive this cruel world... My Mom is the best teacher and I love her so much!

I think they are to an extend. kids tend to learn from what they see. My daughter picks up a lot that I do and say so I have to be careful with what I am showing and teaching her. we have to be good role models. They also learn from school and everyone in there lives.Kids not only pick up on the good but also the bad.They learn from tv and friends too. I think it is up to the parents to try to teach their kids what is right and wrong and that not everything they see is always ok or right.Everyone learns from experience.

KIds most likely developed their attitudes from age 1 to 5 years old. From this stage, they grow up in an environment where there should be parents to look after them and someone who they can learn many things and answer their questions because this stage, children become inquisitive. Now, if parents are absent from this delicate years, whom can children depend on? I think parents should be responsible and if they have major excuses of being absent, they can have what we call Quality Time for their children.

I think it's a mixture of parents and experience. We can learn a lot from both things.
