    Reference answer


    Parents are the initial teachers of their children, thereby, their speech and behaviors, to a larger extent, exert a subtle influence on children’s character training and future development. [Crack IELTS with Rob] The impacts that parents impose on their kids might differ greatly due to various reasons. This essay aims to explore where the differences lie and how parental roles will change in the future.


    Due to the gender disparities, parental roles vary greatly in a child’s growth. Males tend to be more rational and tenacious, while females tend to be more tender and sensible, in this sense, a child can benefit differently from the parent. [Crack IELTS with Rob] As a father, I always try my utmost to set a fine learning example for my child, what my kid can acquire from me is to be a big heart, cherish great ambition and rely on honest hard work to strive for those cherish-but-failed dreams. By contrast, seen from the role my wife plays, it is her unshakable obligation to guide our child to unite peers, respect the old and make a clear distinction between right and wrong. In addition, the distinct workload and pressure might account for the discrepancy. Fathers, in most cases, have to stand out in career, hence, they usually allocate less time to educating children, by contrast, mothers generally give priority to their families, thus, they will spend more time accompanying their children.


    Indeed, it is no easy task to simply predict the change in the parental roles in the future, for different families might have manifold conditions. [Crack IELTS with Rob] One possible change might be that more professional mothers will turn to families more when their families have accumulated enough wealth. More precisely, more females are willing to return to families and wholeheartedly take care of their children. Another predictable development I can figure out is that parents will make joint efforts in educating and guiding their children no matter how busy they are because numerous parents might take fostering excellent children as their source of happiness and spiritual contentment.


    In closing, parents will always have many indispensable roles to play in shaping children’s character, establishing their life outlook and influencing their destinies. [Crack IELTS with Rob] My firm stand is that all parents will exert efforts and take time to influence their children positively. After all, blood is thick than water.
