Task2 - Education >> Teaching & Responsibility

"Teaching & Responsibility"

Teaching children and young people how to behave is the responsibility of parents, not the schools or government.

Do you agree or disagree?

Young generations always receive concern from every part of the society. However, some people believe that whether children have good behavior or not, is the duty of their parents and does not relate to the schools or the government. I strongly disagree with this statement because all of these inputs play important roles in the development of children. This essay will clarify my perspective.

The main reason why I believe that, as well as the parents, both the schools and government have to take responsibilities in the ways children act with other people is because they create the environments where children usually interact the most. In other words, although family is the place where the kids are raised and parents are the first people whom they communicate with, schools are the second place where the young can make new relationships with friends and teachers. Moreover, they can study how to make friends with peers and create companionship. Furthermore, teachers also teach them principles and moral standards in society which are really needed for forming the awareness and the behaviors of children. Boarding schools are the typical example for this because students have to spend most of their time at school and care taking from parents is not emphasized.

In addition, as well as schools, nobody can deny the role of the government in the ways young people behave. To create helpful citizens, the government must always focus on not only enhancing the education system but also holding social activities to encourage them to integrate into the community.

In conclusion, besides parents, schools and government are partly responsible for shaping children's characters. If all of these influences spend more attention on the children, the society will have helpful and useful service from younger generations.
