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. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.


A suitable child’s education is the combination of broadening a horizon and having good morality. It is often said that parents are the main factor that determines the morality of a child. The others think school is the most important place to carry out. In my opinion, home and school are simultaneously contributing to the characteristics of each person.

On the one hand, parents play an important role in nurturing a child, they are a friend, a mentor, and educators of their children. They can determine the characteristics of their offsprings at an early age. If parents ignore their son's bad behavior and, he will take disobey for granted, and disrespect the elder in some cases. In contrast, a person being strictly educated and well taken care of by parents will be more responsible for their activities. In addition, children always imitate their family members so their actions and behaviors could significantly influence their children. For example, if youngers witness domestic violence, they have a tendency to become violent when they grow up.

On the other hand, the school where seems to be a small community of children creates big impacts on children. They can experience much taste of early life in school with their peers and teachers. Children can absorb theory and practice how to become good citizens. To illustrate, they learn civic education in class then participate in community clubs so that they could help many people and do useful activities.

In conclusion, both parenting and schooling roles are crucial in nurturing a child to be a good member of society.
