IELTS 8 Test 1 WRITING TASK2 范文 Some people think that parents should teach children how to be good members of society. Others, however, believe that school is the place to learn this. Discus
s both these views and give your own opinion. The discussion about who should be responsible for children's education between parents and teachers has been debated by the public for many years. Personally, I think that both parents and teachers have the obligation to cultivate children, just in terms of different aspects. Owing to instinct, children tend to imitate practically behaviors of their parents like speaking, eating, playing, etc. Prior to entering school, parents are the best teachers for their children, especially in some daily habits. To be specific, parents should teach their children what is the proper custom and behavior, such as washing tooth before sleeping, eating breakfast regularly and so forth. Furthermore, parents would be well-advised to foster their children's independent living capability, which is quite essential in determining whether they would look after themselves or not in the future. Additionally, what I want to emphasize here is that children, even toddlers, should also be taught how to distinguish what is right or wrong by their parents before get contact with the society. This is because all of these elements will predominately determine children's personality and it will be hard to change once it formed. Nevertheless, school is another crucial place for children to form their characteristic, acquire knowledge and skill. Correcting some inappropriate behavior is the principally task for teachers because tons of children always imitate some bad behaviors of their parents. Apart from this, teachers play a vital role in teaching children how to become integrity, loyalty and intelligent students. Also, school is the place where children could obtain academic knowledge and form their value system, which determines if they would be beneficial to society after they grow up. Having considered all the arguments above, I hold the opinion that parents as well as teachers both should teach children how to become useful person, but parenting and schooling should be combined. Thus, the younger generation would be gain the superior educate to be good members of society.
