The degree to which parents are actively involved in their children’s education is a crucial determinant of academic achievement. It reduces the cultural divide between home and school.
A number of reasons can be cited for the necessity of parental involvement in a child’s education. First and foremost, parents are appropriately regarded as the first teachers and role models of their children. Child views toward others who are different from themselves may be shaped by the way parents view and treat diversity.
Parents are critical educators. Some of the most crucial aspects of teaching children are parents’ courage to demonstrate their own ignorance when they don’t know something, and their ability to work patiently through obstacles they encounter. The time spent interacting with children, whether via play or conversation, is critical to their development. Learning to teach requires a certain amount of experimentation. It’s not so much about what someone already knows as it is about what they do to learn new things.
With the help of parents and children, the joy of learning together surpasses the difficulties of exhaustion, time constraints and humiliation. There is more to education than sitting in a classroom. Basic education isn’t enough in today’s information-driven world. It encourages innovation, collaboration, the ability to think beyond the box, and the ability to ask challenging questions.
Extracurricular activities, such as athletics, school clubs, music, and drama, are an important aspect of a student’s development and should be encouraged by parents. Most children’s educational experiences begin even before they enter school, at home. Personal engagement and the development of intimate, cooperative relationships between coworkers will be more important in the workplace of the future, but this will be impossible to achieve unless a similar environment is developed at home.
Especially in the new millennium, when the economy is booming, it’s more difficult than ever to grow up. Curiosity for the world around him leads an inquisitive child to a state of emotional instability. In this stage, the youngster begs their parents for help, attention, and love. Neglecting this stage could have fatal consequences for the child.
The rest of a child’s desires are deemed taboo by parents, who prefer to focus on the child’s future job path. The child is constantly subjected to expectations that they will do well in life. Parental pride grows as children mature, but as they get older, the only thing they care about is their child’s success in school. The word ‘failure’ serves as a depressing metaphor for the children’s harrowing experiences. Parents’ hopes and expectations are dashed when their children show signs of being unable to deal with the demands of academic success.
Anxiety over exams and other school-related concerns, sibling rivalry and parental conflict, as well as parental stress and divorce, all contribute to children’s vulnerability to depression or the onset of a new world, according to experts (without parents).
