40 minutes, 250 words at least.

Please go through an excellent 8 band answer a student recently wrote.


Introduction: (Introduce the topic and mention your opinion along with reasons supporting it)

A person’s economic and social success largely depends on his upbringing during formative years. I strongly believe that parents play an instrumental role in a child’s future success since they not only impart morals and ethics in the child but also offer essential skills for success.

The introduction mentions two reasons – please explain reason 1 in the body paragraph 1 and reason 2 in body paragraph 2. 

Body Paragraph 1: (Explain reason 1 – Morals and ethics)

Parents are the primary source of ethics and morals for a child. Scientific studies have proven that children whose parents impart the elements of hard work and perseverance in them are economically more successful in future than others. Parents should teach these morals to their children not merely by teaching but by working hard themselves. For instance, a sociological study in the United States revealed that children of immigrant parents are more successful in the future since they have seen their parents work in two shifts during a day and they learn the importance of strong work ethics.

Body Paragraph 2: (Explain reason 2 – Essential Skills)

Moreover, children learn essential skills for success not from their teachers but from their parents. While schools teach academic subjects, parents teach practical skills such as communication, social behaviour to their children. Undoubtedly, these practical skills help a child adapt to the society and make a positive impression that is vital for success as a professional or a business person. Furthermore, various case studies have established that parental guidance in imparting skills during childhood played an instrumental role in success of famous people such as Serena Williams, Sachin Tendulkar and Saina Nehwal. The parents of these sports personalities were also from a sports background.

Conclusion: (Conclude the essay with FUTURE)

In conclusion, parents play a vital role in a child’s future success by teaching essential morals and ethics, as well as important skills. If parents take a keen interest in their child’s development, the child will be economically independent and socially respected. This will make a society peaceful and prosperous.
