Persuasive Essay on Parenting Children Parents purpose in a childs life is to teach a child manners, how to relate with other people, good qualities in their behavior. We also must teach our children to be productive and have respect for our coworkers. In the first place when parents begin to think about having children and raising their family they should put a lot of thought in the ways they think is best for their children.
Parents should put their feelings aside and in addition focus on what is going to help their children become responsible and capable adults. When a child is raised in a proper manner by their parents, they will grow up to be responsible and law abiding citizens helping the world to be a better place to live in. As the way they were raised when they become adults it will help them raise their children the right way.

The parent should also give the child good tips on how to study to get the most out of their homework. No child should be paid to get good grades it should be them wanting to do it to better their education and not them just doing it for the money. We as parents should start early setting good examples for our children to make them have good habits later on in life. Children will learn a lot by watching other people other than being told what to do. When making mistakes a child should be taught there is consequences to bad behavior. Their consequences should be appropriate to their age level. Treating all children the same is not fair to the child. Each child is their own person and they are all on different levels, they each have different talents that they are good at. A child should be praised for doing their best at whatever they do.
