In your essay, you should describe the pictures iefly,interpret the meaning, andgive your comments.
The above pictures reveal two fathers’ distinctly different parenting methods. In one picture, the father is urging his son to study hard while relaxing himself, with his eyes fixed on the TV. In the other picture, both the father and his son concentrate on their study. The caption under the cartoon reads: “It is better to set an example than merely make demands”.
What the above pictures intend to illustrate is that parents can better teach children by example than verbal instruction in their daily life. As an old saying goes, a good example is the best way of persuasion. There is no doubt that parents play a vital role in bringing up their children since they are the role models kids look to for guidance, especially in their formative years. When it comes to instructing and influencing kids, action tends to speak louder than words.
Therefore, in my opinion, it is parental duty for adults to set examples for children. Only when adults earnestly practice what they advocate can children follow their example. This way, children can also enjoy better family atmosphere and get better disciplined.
