Teachers are the guiding light of our life. As the whole world celebrates Teacher’s Day on September 5 by wishing their teachers, I revisit my childhood and wish my parents. Parents are those who shape our value system in our formative years. Parents are our first teachers. Know the importance of teachers – how they can make a child’s life better with just small guidance.
Teaching is the noblest of all professions. It starts right from the childhood days when parents start inculcating values in their child. Parents help children to discover their full potential by engaging with their mind. Parents harness the powers and steer the child’s brain so that they learn in a better way.
Indeed, our parents are the best teachers who help us to explore the path and show us our strengths that eventually lead to wisdom and truth. Importance of teachers – they can see the bright spark in children long before children see in themselves.
