Q5(b). Role of Father, Mother, and Teacher

Q5(b). ‘If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, mother and teacher.’ – A P J Abdul Kalam. Analyse. (150 words, 10)
This beautiful quote by Dr Kalam highlights the importance of parents and teachers in framing the moral values of their children and pupils. Children are under the constant supervision of their parents when they are young. They closely observe the behaviour of their parents and imbibe their values at a very tender age. These values get deeply engraved in their mind for a lifetime. If parents inculcate the right values, their children would grow up to become honest and ethical citizens in a society.
Teachers also play very important role in inculcating good values in children. If teachers are compassionate, loving, honest and disciplined, the children shall learn these values from them in school. Good teachers inculcate good values in children through stories, songs, anecdotes, examples, case studies in the most interesting manner. When children cultivate the right values at a young age, they become honest and moral. Thus parents and teachers play an extremely important role in building the character of children and cultivate right values in them. (169 words)
