Task 2 (Academic) Sample—A real test taker’s answer

On recent years, some people think that parents should teach children how to be good members of society. On the other hand some people believe that school is the place to learn about it.

Observing the issue I could choose, and my preference would be parents and family should teach their children at home first. Family or a home is the basic institution for a new born child. They are all time learning from their family members. How their family members react with people or community. Human is a social being specially children are follow and copy things and people who are near to them. After that they will learn from school academically.

According to analyze the pro’s and cons I prior the parent to teach their children proparly and it start from them. However some people belive that children will learn things from school, they believe that education is the backbone of a society. Some times parents are not that much careful about their children in that case school is the best institution for them.

Research shows us the data that those children start their learning from the begining at home they are doing very well in the future. They taught by their parents that well behave with the society is a great intaraction for whole neighbourhood. As well some lesson their teacher teach them in their school. In the long learn they do very effective work for the society.

In a nutsell, I can say that parents are the first instructor for their children and then the school. Home is the first institution for children. Or we can say, charity begins at home.
