It is said that “parents are the first teachers and home is the first school of a child.” Simply father and mother of a child are called parents. Parents are the only one obligated to love: from the rest of the world you earned it. When you look into your parents eyes, you know it is the purest love you can find on earth. Education is the process in which one get knowledge about anything and create capability to know about it and learn more and more. A child’s education begins from home with their parents. Parents have many responsibilities towards the education of their children.

A child cannot achieve best knowledge and cannot be educated well in the absence of parents. A child or student can perform well in class if their parents are well educated and well qualified. Parents take care of the children very much. In the context of our country, most of the parents in rural areas are illiterate. They only can send their children to school, but they don’t have ability to check their homework, and teach them. Most of the parents are farmers and laboureres. They work very hard with low wage and send their children to school hardly. But they don’t know why they are sending their children to school. So they are compelled to bring their children to work with them. Some parents pay large amount of fee in private school. But they don’t know that whether their children are reading well or involved in alcoholism. They are not being able to understand the internal desire of their children. So in most of the rural areas parents are not being able to fulfill. Their roles in their children’s education as a successive process.

Parents are the only one who is more conscious and worried about their children. They play more vital role for the education of children more than a teacher in school. Parents should understand each and every problem of children as well as their internal desires with the higher care and attention of parents children. Children can achieve higher grades and test scores in each class. Children  can enroll in higher level programs and advanced classes. With the quality guiding of parents children can lower the dropout rates and higher graduation rates. To reach the social skill and impressive behavior is also major role of parents. One of the important role of parent is to visit in the school to observe their children. They also can obtain weakness of children by interacting with teachers.

Here’s a beautiful poem relating teacher, parents, children etc

I dreamed of stood in a studio,

And watched two sculptures there,

The clay they used was a young child’ mind,

And they fashioned it with care.

One was a teacher, the tools he used

were books, music and art.

One was a parent with a guiding hand

And a gentle loving heart.

Day after day, the teacher toiled,

With a touch that was deft and sure

While the parent labored by their side

And polished and smoothed it over

And when at last their work was done

They were proud of what they had wrought

For the things they had molded into the child

Could never be sold nor bought.

And each agreed they would have failed

If each had worked alone

For the behind the parent stood the school

And behind the teacher the home

So the parents should be well educated to make their children well qualified. Every parents should be more alterative and careful towards the activities of their children. Parents have to provide necessary material for their children. Knowledge from the school and teaches is not sufficient for children. So they should be taught at home by their parents also. If they follow their parents properly then they can be a respectful citizen in the society. Today’s children are the leader of tomorrow to handle the country.
