Parents have a greater influence on their children’s future success than schools do. Governments should, therefore, provide ”parenting training courses” rather than ”teacher training courses”. Do you agree with this idea?

Introduction: (Introduce the topic while giving your opinion. MENTION the reasons supporting your opinion and EXPLAIN them in the body paragraphs.)
A child’s cognitive development depends on the social environment that includes both home and school. However, the child learns more from parents than from teachers. Governments should focus more on parenting training courses since home’s atmosphere lays the foundation of a child’s career while not losing focus on teacher-training courses because schools reinforce the home’s learnings.

Body Paragraph 1: (Reason 1: foundation)
An infant receives life’s first lessons from his parents and gets influenced by the family atmosphere till adulthood. The parents’ behavior at home and outside along with their habits make an indelible mark on a child’s psyche and lay the foundation for entire life. For instance, studies have proved that children of alcoholic parents indulge in substance abuse during teenage and adulthood. Similarly, kids of parents who read books tend to read books. Consequently, governments must invest in parenting training courses so that the parents understand how to behave and act in front of a child. (96 words.)
Body Paragraph 2: (Reason 2: Schools’ reinforce)
However, governments can’t neglect teacher training programs since children learn a lot at schools. While the foundation of a child’s future success is built at home, school reinforces the learning with proper education and socialization. Undoubtedly, teachers, as well as the peer group, influences a child’s cognitive development through education as well as personal interaction. A recent British study of prosperous people has revealed that most of them had parents who were educated as well as successful and schools which were reputed and whose teachers were qualified.

Conclusion: (Conclude the essay with FUTURE and/or IMPACT.)
In conclusion, if governments pursue both teacher training and parental training seriously, the future generation will not only develop a strong foundation but also gain meaningful skills. This will make a country economically stable and socially sustainable. (37 words.)
