He has to guide his children in the way they study and learn. He has to train their emotions. He has to set decent standards of work and conduct.

The late President Eliot of Harvard once said,

"The supreme value of a teacher lies not in the regular performance of routine duties, but in his power to lead and inspire his students through the influence of his own mental and moral personality and example".
