These days children do not get adequate care from their parents. More often than that not, parents rely on the teachers, not only for academic improvement but also for the overall development of the child. I agree with this thought to some extent but considering the fact that the amount of the time children spend in school, which is about 6 to 8 hours per day, I strongly believe that parents play a vital role in moulding their character to a great extent.
The first lessons of life are imparted by parents. They are the source of a child’s future, parents also mould a child’s being. The first faces that a child looks at are his/her parents. Even before he gets to know about other children, he tries to imbibe qualities from his parents and emulate them. So if parents do not prove to be effective role models, their image in the eyes of their children gets tarnished and this may can have a severe impact.
