Please explain Proverbs 27:11.

How does the behaviour of a child or student reflect on the parent or teacher?

Thanks for asking a question on www.thisisyourbible.com
Here is a good explanatory comment from the "Believer's Bible Commentary:"
27:11 A son's behavior reflects on his father's instruction. A disciple brings either joy or shame to his teacher. Berkeley's footnote says it well:"The teacher's one defense—the success of his students."
I hope that you have found this helpful.
God bless,
