Overall, we could see various architectural design applied so that the house is able to provide efficiency during cold as well as warm climates.
Taking into account the design, there is underground floor which is serving the purpose of heat retention. The underground floor also provides sun protection feature. Above the floor around the walls there is insulation padded to walls. Insulation is a type of material used to block heat from passing through an object or surface.
The covering of roof on the exterior is reflective in nature to avoid the flow of heat. Heat will reflect away from the surface due to covering. The design of roof is in such a way that it will allow escape of skylight during warm climatic condition. Also, due to triple glazing it will allow heat and light having maximum effect during cool climate.

When children starts going to school, the mentor or teacher have a great influence on their intellectual and social skills rather than parents. Though parents are considered to be the first teacher of a child I believe teachers have more power of influence on children.
Admittedly, parents stay connected to a child only to a certain age. Once child becomes the age of school, parents try to make a distance from taking interest in child's activites. On the same note, parents can only teach a certain level of knowledge to a child.
However, a child spends most of the day in school surrounded by teacher. This is where the child gets a chance to develop their ideas and thinking and teachers shape them. So child feels more connected to teacher and not to parents. Another reason is children learns great amount education in school. This is where they decide their carrers and interest. Teachers are always present to help them choose and guide them.
To sum up, yet parents are the first teacher to a child it is the teacher who develops their knowledge and social skills.
