88. Do parents have any role here?
One teacher answered,
"Sure. Definitely. When parents are heavy readers, it's more likely that their children will take on a reading habit.
My dad used to say that the kid who reads comics will read books when an adult.
A Spanish teacher of English said to me he owed his love to English to his dad.
If parents are hard-working, more likely their children will emulate this virtue.
Being-the-parents entails educating their children.
In Spain at least, many parents entrust too much education in the teachers; they think the school will educate their sons and daughters."
