Children’s learning has been prime importance of society from thousands of years in order to instill moral values in them. Parents are responsible for introducing socially acceptable behavior in their child whereas, schools take responsibility of their bright future. One part of society thinks that parents should take all responsibility of their child for good citizenship. I believe that both schools and parents equally important to create courteous member in society.

It is true that, parents are first teacher of children during upbringing. Also, the family environment and communication affect quickly on the kids behavior. It is observed that, parents are usually busy in outdoor activity such as job. That is why sometime they fail to teach their child about morality, honesty and dedication to work. For instance, I got huge success in my engineering education because my mother always teaches me importance of hard work. Also, my school assisted me a lot in my education.

Discipline and team-spirit are the two important ethics which usually require for creating bright career are mostly taught in schools. Interestingly, students mix with same age students and adapt their behavior quickly as compared to other different age friends. Eventually, many schools claim that they have unique education system for personality development as well as academic education.

In this way collaboration between parents and schools will assist student in getting success.
