Every human being passes to stages on life where they get to know themselves and the world around them (identify voices, recognize your image, interact with other, have own ideas and discover yourself).The timing in life that people deal with most stages is their childhood.

Laccan explain with the mirror theory  how little ones see,recognize their image and  start to know his body by looking thought the mirror, touching their body ,trying to Understand their own body.After that he has to deal with others, in this phase he gets in contact with his family, laugh and listen the sounds   the others do, then start to make noises copying what was heard before and later to talk. The first word is normally the easiest one he listens over and over again.

In every stage he`s taking consciousness of something new. Even though each kid has their own way of learning ,observing is one of the most used and successful forms of absorbing new information .They don`t  know how to act, walk , what to say and when; they start to copy who`s around them, they trust  that`s the right behavior. Monkey see monkey do.

The best example to conform that is the difference between city people`s English and the small towns. Each one of them learned to speak like they do because of the pronunciation of the people next to them, especially if they respect those people (parents, teachers, friends…).

So it can be claimed that children learn a lot be observing who`s close to them; to then discover he`s personal style, what they like and want to do. Before you create your own method you use somebody else’s.

Children learn best by observing the behavior of adults and copying it. Do you agree or disagree? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
In the waking of the development of this society, children tend to learn everything fast.  In each period of their lives, they learn in different ways. This essay will discuss whether children learn best by observing the behavior of adults and copying it.
     It’s true that children learn best by observing the behavior of adults and copying it. First of all, children are from new born to 5 years old have habit of aping the grown-ups. They talk in tongue and gesture like those they meet often. Secondly, they don’t know any languages from birth and after about 3 years copying and listening to other people they can talk and understand automatically. Their abilities of aping are very fast. Besides, it’s hard for adults to lean languages because adults can’t learn by observing others and copying it. The third point is that children are not only learn languages fast but also aping the behavior of adults, they imitate what their parents do. For example, they’ll empty the rubbish to the right place if their parents have that habit. Some four to five children can be perfect dancers because of excellent observing and copying from famous singers, dancers… They are expecting to become professional.
However, children don’t learn best by observing the behavior of adults and copying it when they are at the age of over ten. As growing up, children also begin to get acquainted with different environments. They will improve their thought themselves in educational environment. Another point is that they will have friends, have chances to study with good methods and they communicate much more with their friends at school than with adults. That’s why this time they tend to learn and arrange the knowledge as logical as possible, observing and copying are also helpful and support them in this period. Furthermore, they know how to pick and choose what’s good and suitable for themselves. They will get and learn lessons from their friends, teachers and parents.
     In summary, I agree with the opinion that children learn best by observing the behavior of adults and copying it. I also believe that they would learn best by studying from their friends at school by selecting what comes to them.

It is often said that parents are the first teacher of a child. Although parents neither teach their children things directly nor teach by design and children don’t always learn when their parents intend to teach them, they themselves have started to learn from their parents while they are doing things by watching and imitating. Therefore, many people think that the way children get knowledge by observing behavior of adults and copying it is the best one. For me, this statement is partly right for some reasons. 

If you are a parent of a child or who has many opportunities to be involved with children, it will be easy for you to understand that children can learn quickly by observing behavior of adults and copying it. Spending a lot of time to take care of my nephew who is under the age of 3 that helps me to have more experiences in this field. When my nephew was a little boy without saying any words and one of his favorite hobbies is eating Popsicle and I know that too much Popsicle per day is not good for his health. So, when he showed me signals that he wants more Popsicle; I often rejected it by saying “No” with the head shaking. At that time, I didn’t know that it was also the first lesson I gave to him. This means that the first word he can pronounce to his mother when she feed him is “No”. Another example, from the time he got to know that everyone around him could feed himself or herself, he started to learn how to feed himself by watching the behaviors of his closet adults and imitating it. From these cases, we know that let your children watching what his closet adults are doing and copying it is a good way to help them to learn about life. However, this is not the best way, which is also the point I disagree with this above statement. 

A child is like a “mirror” that reflects not only the good behaviors but also the bad ones from the closet adults. No parents want to teach their children bad habits however you should remember that the little eyes is always watching is very important for parents. New research shows that one of the reasons for kids lie early is that they are just copying their parents. 

In conclusion, closet adults living with a child play an important role in creating his characteristics. Therefore, taking good care of your behaviors helps to take good care of your children.

The Process of growing up is very complex for children. Among countless factors that influence children's growth, the behavior of 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. Although the baby is just slur pronunciation, the little baby has started to learn from their parents by observing and copying the adults' talk. This learning environment is important for the babies.
There is a special case reported by the press. A baby was abandoned when she was born. A sow fed her as a piglet. When she was about eight years old, some villagers found her, her intelligence was just similar to the two-year old baby and all of her behaviors were looked like a pig. From this case, we know child is a "mirror" which will reflect the behavior of the closet adults.
Along with the children's growth, adults will influence them much more, such as logical thinking, making decision, cooperation with others, etc.. The behavior of adults can give children both good and bad influence. Most of the behaviors represent adults' inclination. For instance, if media report chiefly on the shadow side of the society, children will easily incline to violence and excessive sex. Therefore, they will be infected with bad mental state.
Behavior is a direct and convincing method to teach children. Things are easier said than done. Parents always tell children those principles repeatedly, but most children can not accept it through these boring method. Adults’ behavior is the most effective education method to let them observe the whole process of how to deal with the problems. The children will learn from you naturally.
Children are like young trees, they need to be carefully irrigated, fertilized and trimmed. Your behavior will be greatly helpful to shape them into useful talents.
