Parents play a unique and important role in their child's education. All parents want their child(ren) to realize the maximum benefits from their school experience. They want them to develop skills, gain knowledge and have experiences that will help ensure they have happy and successful lives. In recent years it has been shown that one of the most important ways to ensure children have successful learning experiences is the support and involvement of their parents. This is true not only in the early grades but is equally important when students reach middle school and high school. When parents are involved in their student's education, student achievement rises, students have a more positive attitude, attendance improves and graduation rates are higher.
It is important that the school and home work together to support student learning. Reading to children, monitoring homework, limiting television and computer time, attending their school activites and working with teachers can all influence how well students learn.
are a number of ways parents can help their children be successful learners.
It is important for parents to provided opportunities for children to
explore new ideas and find the support they need to be successful
learners in the protective environment of the family. This not only provides
a safe environment for students to try out new ideas and expand their
experiences, it also sends the message that learning is valued and important.
