Parents need to be active participants in their children's educational experiences. They can help their children at home when teachers are not available. It is important for parents to meet and communicate with the child's teacher. Parents of students who show an interest in their education, seem to do better than students who do not have the support and help of their parents.

Parents should familiarize themselves with the material that there students are required to learn. Several websites are up and available to help promote the educational experiences of all students. One of the websites that most teachers use is www.brainpop.com. Some teachers will even provide a list of websites that they may recommend their students use to enhance their learning outside of the classroom.

Parents who are involved with their child's education can boost their child self-esteem, and this can make a child that was struggling to be able to become a successful student, and improve their grades all the way around. Students who struggle in school are usually students that do not have support and are from lower-class families. Most of these students end up repeating grades, or having to receive tutorial or resource help at school.

Parents can also volunteer at their child's school to help students who do not have that support, and help them in any areas that they are struggling in. Teachers and parents can work together to produce a conducive learning environment for all students. When the students see that the teachers and parents are working together, it can promote dynamic results in a students attitude and performance in the classroom.

If students see that someone truly is willing to help them, they will begin to strive to do better. Together, parents and teachers can help any student become successful learners.
