IELTS Cue Card Sample Answers # Ideal Parents

The most important person in any individual’s life are his or her parents. Parents are the people who tend to shape the individual. Although, every individual admires his or her parents the most, their are certain people in our lives whom we adore irrespective of whether they are associated with us or not. Let us today have a look at questions related to ideal parents that might be asked in the cue card section.

Describe people that you know and believe to be very good parents.

You should say:

  • Who are they?
  • How did you meet them?
  • Why do you think they are good parents?

and explain what it requires to be good parents.

Parents are the most important people in any ones life and my parents are the most important for me. But, I think when it comes to talking of people I know and believe they are truly good parents, I think the names that comes to my mind is that of Will Smith and Jaden Smith. These are the two most popular parents of the Hollywood industry and have raised some beautiful kids.

Sadly, I have never been able to meet them in real life but I have seen enough of their interviews with others and sometimes with their children, explaining how they raise their kids and the kind of values they imbibe in them. The reason I think they are great parents because they did taught their children things which I think everyone should teach their kids.

One of them is experiment. They have asked their kids to experiment with their passions and the other things that they love. In a particular interview, Jaden talks to her child and says that it is very important for you to love yourself because it is only when you love yourself that you can go about and fall in love with someone else and that is how the world falls in love with you.

In one interview, Will Smith talks of how for you to be able to create a wall it is very important for you to be able to put that one brick perfectly and that is how life is lived. I think these are some great lessons that are taught and the way they live, I believe they are truly great parents.

I believe to be a good parent requires you to be great individuals first. Because a child often learn more by what he or she sees than what he or she is told to do. Apart from that the one thing which I believe truly separates normal parents from the great parents, is the trust they have on their child and his or  her potential. It surely takes lot of love and more important trust ones own upbringing to be able to trust the child completely.

I believe it is only when a child is trusted and told that he or she is trusted that the true nature of the child evolves.

We all love our parents and believe that parents do play a very important role in everyone’s life. But the one parents, or for that matter, the one mother that I truly adore is the mother of great scientist Thomas Alva Edison. I don’t know much about her because of the reason that there is so less said about her but the one incidence that is talked about gives a lasting impression of the kind of lady she was.

It is said that once Thomas came back home with a note saying that he cannot read or write anymore and his mother read it and told that he is brilliant and can achieve whatever he thinks he can. Instead of losing faith on his child because of what the school said, her mother believed his child. She taught him and I think it was only because of her that the world had one of the greatest scientist of the century, Thomas Alva Edison.

There are parents who love their child, ones who teach their child but someone who could trust their  child even when the world went against them, it requires lot of love, perseverance and trust.

I believe to be a good parent requires you to be great individuals first. Because a child often learn more by what he or she sees than what he or she is told to do. Apart from that the one thing which I believe truly separates normal parents from the great parents, is the trust they have on their child and his or  her potential.
