Parental Involvement in students education

See also

Parents need to be active participants in their children's educational journey. They need to be involved from the start of kindergarten all the way through high school. Parents can help their students at home when teachers are not available. It is very important for the parents and teachers to meet and communicate.

Students that have parents that show a keen interest in their child's education seem to do better than parents who do not. Parents should familiarize themselves with the material that their child is learning so that they can be better prepared to help them when they begin to have problems or need help beyond the classroom walls.

There are several educational websites available that can help students and parents. Many teachers provide a list for their students at the beginning of the school year. It is important to look at some of these websites to make sure that the material is similar to what your student is learning, or will have to learn. Some of the most popular websites are: www.funbrain.com, www.bainpop.com, www.abcmuse.com/Preschool, www.smarterschooling.com/EduGames, www.kidsknowit.com, and one that has been around for quite a while is, www.pbskids.org.

Parents that are involved with their children and their educational path can boost that child's self-esteem. This can also have a positive impact on the students grades as well. Students who struggle in school are usually students that do not have any type of support or parental involvement at all. Most of these students end up failing their grade or have to get resource or tutorial help at school.

Parents can also volunteer at school to help other students that do not have the support. Teachers and parents working together can promote conducive learning environments, and this can produce dynamic results in the students attitudes and performance in the classroom. If a student sees that someone is willing to help them, they will strive to do better.

Together, parents and teachers can help struggling students become a successful learner.
