The picture gives information about the designing methods of houses for two types of climates. Overall, the prime purpose is to achieve more productiveness of energy in a house design and create more fitting plans for warm and cold climates.
First of all, it is obvious that a cold-climate resisting plan stands out with the usage of insulation. Typically, the roofs of two given principles are different, in particular, reflective roof covering materials and skylight are utilized for the house designs in a warm climate whereas, in a cold climate, the houses tend to have a triple-glazed skylight and heat maximizing materials. Moreover, in terms of the floors, the heat-resisting design has sun protection on an underground floor whilst the plan for houses in a cold climate proposes underground floor heat retention. Additionally, it should also be noted that through such underground floor heat retention, the flow of heat is being prevented from going out.

Nowadays, it is commonly believed that after the commencement of school years in the lives of young generations, teachers tend to have more effects on the psychological and communicating characteristics of children in comparison to their parents. Although I tend to agree with this point of view, I ponder that parents also could keep the influence on their children more efficiently.
Initially, it should be admitted that teachers spent the vast majority of children's active hours together. In other words, once school life starts, parents tend to be with their children after their spent time with teachers. However, parents ask their children about school life or social life with their friends and teachers. Additionally, albeit teachers influence on a child's psychology, parents could love their children more than teachers in any case. Moreover, children always endeavour to imitate their parents and want to boast the parents' achievements and certain belongings. For instance, in some cases, young generations try to indicate the things which their parents teach them in a practical way rather than the things which are taught under the pressure of teachers at school.
Furthermore, another reason why I ponder that parents' influence on children remains more effective is that parents constitute the prime providers of young generations no matter at school or at home. Moreover, parents could give advice and share their life experience with the children more sincerely. For instance, when something happens, children always tend to go to their parents rather than their teachers whom they see in only certain hours a day.
In conclusion, there are some reasons which enable teachers to have more influence on children's social and intellectual life, in particular, spending more time together or teaching them something academically, however, parents could also keep their effects more efficiently on account of their financial provisions or other psychological supports.
