19 Aug Teachers Have a Great Role in the Upbringing of Children
School is a place where child learns and gets maximum knowledge and growth during the learning process. It is also a place where his hidden potentials are tapped. This learning process for a child starts when the parents send the child to playschool and continues until college where he receives his graduation or post graduation.
As we see it clearly that a child spends nearly 6 to 7 hours a day throughout the year (except during holidays) in school, it is obvious that teachers have a great role to play in the upbringing of children.
As a child can be easily molded in a right way like clay in a potter’s hand, it is important to understand that teachers can correct the child’s behaviour and character, whenever and wherever necessary. He can also shape up the child’s personality by being a role model in upbringing the children in school.
As children are very affectionate, innocent, adaptable and docile, it becomes mandatory for the teachers to have both professional competency and a very strong moral background as she can gradually influence and shape up each child’s personality with gentle persuasion.
As most children have a great respect for their teachers, this advantage must be properly utilized in correcting, advising and upbringing the children by leading kids during different challenging situations and circumstances encountered in classrooms.
Besides, a teacher is a second parent to each one of her students. Whether the child is too young or in his teens, a teacher must be effective in her approach by being impartial, loving and simultaneously leading through examples in all her endeavors.
As teacher has a vital role to play in a student’s life, it is correct to say they are the people who could create generations altogether. In short they are in some way the builder of our nation as they are exposed to a mass of students who are the future citizens of the country. So, it is very crucial and elementary for the teachers to lead and influence the students aptly in every walk of life no matter whether it is in a classroom or even outside the class.
Teachers should also inspire their students to build them into great personality whether they become architect, engineer, doctors, teachers, businessmen or any professions of their interest. They should also shape them to contribute to the society by being upstanding citizens of our nation.
The main role a teacher could do is to make her class very interesting by getting almost all the students involved by asking questions or while discussing a topic. The more involvement, the more the child learns. This way the learning gets easier and interesting.
Besides, even outside the class room, she needs to continue to influence and correct the children by building their character in all aspects of life.
Nevertheless, it is worth stating that the students can be successful in his life if equal support is backed up by the parent at home as well.
