Speaking Part 2
Describe someone who is a good parent/ Describe a good parent you know
You should say:
- Who the parent is
- How you know the parent
- What the parent looks like
- And explain why you think the parent is good
Being a parent myself, it’s tough to analyze who good parents are and who isn’t, especially when you have to feed your kid and pull out the dirty diapers. But I can always tell you whom I look up to when I face any problem in parenting.
Being brought up by my grandparents, I always thought they were the perfect guardian one can have. I lost my parents before I had my senses to distinguish between right and wrong. So it was my grandparents and me all along.
Even though they are old with loose skin, grey hair and with few teeth fallen, they were perfectly fit to manage themselves in their own way.
They might have a generation gap and difference in opinion, but the best thing about them is, they were always willing to learn. They had never ignored the fact that one can have a different capability to learn. I was never once compared to others when I had low grades. Instead, I was taught to understand where it went wrong and ways to get better. I was taught to be polite but to be firm, in my opinion. I was always asked about my thoughts on something. They have always asked me for my opinion on everything. I may not have seen my parents, but I always knew they were just like them. They were a parent figure to me. Even today, when I face any difficulties, I look up to them and seek a solution. I think I have learnt parenting from the best people in the world.

Speaking Part 3
1 How do working parents in your country take care of their children?
Working parents in my country leave the children to their parents. Sometimes the parents appoint a nanny or a maid at home to look after their children. Some people think childcare organisations can offer the best care and admit their children in these organisations. Thus, it’s better for the children to be looked after by their grandparents.
2 Do you think working parents allow their children to watch too much television?
Well, it depends! Some working parents monitor their children’s activities and set up a limit for the use of digital accessories like TV, Smartphones, Tablets, etc. Others let their children squander too much time on watching the digital media which has a negative impact on them.
3 How much freedom should parents allow teens to have?
Parents should allow the teens to have freedom to an extent where the teens will have an opportunity of making their own decisions & choices and get time to learn from their mistakes. Also, children should follow the rules and boundaries set by their parents.
4 Do you think parents in your country are putting too much pressure on their children?
Maybe yes! Some parents put a lot of pressure on their children as they want them to succeed and have a good career. This causes the children to feel extremely stressed by the pressure. They fail to live up to their parents’ expectations. Thus, putting too much pressure has its own negative aspects which outweigh the positive ones.
