Are parents the best teachers? Larisa Toxosashvili

Parents shape their children from their birth. They teach their children values. They shape their interests with them. Parents may limit a child`s freedom in the name of safety. A teacher may organize an educational trips to a big city, but a parent may think this trip is too dangerous.

Parents sometimes expect their children`s interests to be similar to their own. Parents warn to give their values to their children. Sometimes parents, especially older ones, can`t keep up with rapid social or technological changes. Parents are important teachers in our lives, but they aren`t always the best teachers.
