Kids gain knowledge best by watching conducts of adults and replicating it is a contentious one. Many people think that this is the most effective for the children to learn. However the opposites are not few in numbers. In this essay I’ll discuss some argument for and against of the given topic.

The behavior of the adults plays a significant role in shaping children’s inclination and character. After the baby is born the first and the nearest adults are his/her parents. Then the little baby starts his learning by observing and copying adults talks and movements.
Along with  childrens growth teachers and parents  will influence them much more such as logical thinking, making decision, cooperation with others etc.
A child learns most by simply paying attension to what others are doing or copying them. For instance many girls learn cooking by following her mother in kitchen. Say for another example a boy sees his father playing video games and watching TV all the time, he would prefer to do all these activities.

Best is a big word. Actually now a days there are so many ways to get knowledge such as computer, internet, TV, mobile, games, newspaper, books are the great resources.
By watching adults and copying them is big way but not best way all the time for a child. It may be true for his certain age. After very infant periods adults role decreases. Then he finds friends of same ages and his life may be regulated in large scale by the influence of them.
Observation and imitating don’t work as positive always. If a child sees his father smoking or one of his family member using bad words then he be motivated by them.

Children are like young trees, they need to be carefully irrigated, fertilized and trimmed. Follwing adults and copying them is very good one for learning. But when a child figures it out his/her own, the best learning can take place. Naturally he will earn knowlege on the earth from everything.
