Every child is influenced by multiple factors in his or her growth. Compared with the family, other factors from outside the home seem to have greater influence on children’s development.
Parents are considered as children's first teachers, playing an indispensable role in children’s growth, particularly in their childhood years. Parents are the first to help children to learn basic life skills and the ability to distinguish right from wrong. Children tend to imitate what their parents do and follow how their parents behave. If parents could set a good example, children would be more likely to become valuable members of society. By contrast, the wrong methods of parenting can be harmful to children’s growth.
However, after children enter school, other factors have greater influence on their development than parents do. First and foremost, teachers in school impart children knowledge of various subjects in a systematic manner so that children can make progress in academics and prepare for future careers. Teachers are also expected to be students’ role models, guiding them in behavior and correcting their mistakes. In addition, school is a wider community where children spend most of time living and studying together with their peers from different backgrounds. This experience is important in children’s growth, which teaches them how to interact positively with others, to settle a dispute and to contribute to the community.
In conclusion, parenting approaches affect children’s abilities, values and behavior, especially during pre-school years. After children start school, this influence still exists but other factors from outside of the family play a larger role in children’s development.
