Parental involvement in children education
These are activities that parents conduct at home or at school which directly or indirectly
support their children learning and work to create a connection between home and school. They
include creating a home environment that extends the activities and experiences of school and
coincides with the classroom task. They allow parents to monitor classroom and school activities
and coordinate their effort with teachers. Some of ways that parents shows involvement at child
education include encouraging the kid to do homework, creating a conducive and comfortable
learning place, giving a helping hand anytime your child needs, expressing a high realistic
expectation from their academic achievement, participating in school community work giving
explanation of some of the teachers action geared toward helping them and encouraging school
perseverance among others (Peters).
Parent involvement in child education is seen as the cornerstone of child education. It
makes a considerable difference in child’s school life, academic success and overall school
enjoyment (Wanke). Apart from its numerous benefits to the children and parent themselves,
teachers and the school also benefits too. Recent research has shown that children whose parents
control the way they progress in their academics study better than those ignored. They are also

likely to have more self-motivation, esteem, confidence and be more disciplined regardless of
their economic, social or ethnic background. To the parents, their involvement helps them to
become more sensitive and responsive to children emotional, intellectual and social development
needs since there is increased interaction and discussion among them. This creates more
confident in parenting skills because they gain knowledge on their child’s development. It also
improves their perception of the school. To the educators, there is increased job satisfaction due
to increased communication to parents which enhance a better understanding of families and
culture diversity easing their performance.
If parents take the involvement in the education so far, they became a source of
distraction to both the child and the teacher. This is a result of stepping too frequently to issues
that children or teacher can handle or even discussing the teachers from a negative point of view.
It destroys the child attitude toward the teacher and school and worsens academic success and
can even lead to school dropout (Hornby et al. 69)
In conclusion, parents’ involvement to children education advantages outweighs the
disadvantages only if the parent plays their role correctly. A child generally improves their
academics performance and develops a worthy personality when a parent has a positive influence
on his/her education.
