A survey of more than 800 teachers by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers revealed a rise in the number of pupils with emotional, behavior issues over the past five years. Many said parents were to blame for a rising tide of disruptive behavior in schools because they fail to lay down the law at home. Nine out of 10 staff said they had to deal with at least one case of a challenging or disruptive pupil during the past year.
In my opinion, I don’t think that parents are the one to be blamed for their children’s bad habits. These habits are normally due to the games that teenagers and children play constantly which affects their mind and the way they think. I believe that parents are not at home most of the time and they pin all their hopes on the school teachers to teach their children moral values. Parents are constantly out to work and earn income for the family and are seldom home to educate their child on morals. Therefore I believe that it is the teachers fault for not teaching the values.
