PARENT INVOLVEMENT 2 Parents involvement in academics determines the results facility concerning the performance of the child or children. Good parental abilities mean higher grades and huge enrollment in enhanced level programs. Children brought up in well-managed families are likely to adjust well in their academics and display enhanced social behavior. Based on Southwest Educational Development Laboratory research report, schools should engage parents more in operating the school and involve them in meetings. Also, provide them with encouragement and the knowledge of having open school chats with the students (Amatea, Smith-Adcock, & Villares, 2006). Statistics indicated that in situations involving parents, the performance of the students was much higher than when parents were not involved. In Hancock and Starker (2013) article Teacher Initiated Communication: Engaging Parents Responsively in an Urban School Context researched, it focused on the connection between parents/guardians and teachers' communications and the performance of the students. Additionally, the article focused on urban conditions where minority parents/guardians might feel minimized by teachers and administrators or have a bad encounter with students and adults. The association with the parents/guardians in schools' events is a significant component to the performance of the students. In such a climate, the case may be that parents/guardians are too occupied and therefore need time and instructive information to explore school reality that will assist with guiding the students. Predictable, conscious and communication among the parents/guardians and the school staff creates a stage for gaining knowledge about the school, its vision and mission, and ensure that everyone involved focused on a typical objective which is performance achievement (Amatea, et al., 2006). Additionally, outlined in the article was parents/guardian's role teaching their child/children in the home environment (Emmon & Comer, 2005). Any typical child is likely to
PARENT INVOLVEMENT 3 believe in their parents/guardians before other individuals, which involves lessons on parents teaching their children. For example, if a parent informs a child not to listen to others, the child is likely to stick with this. An attempt to change their attitude at a further developed age would be difficult, which burdens the teacher with having to deal with the situation in the school environment. This situation could place poor performance blamed on the teacher when they are not the blame. Parents/guardians are obligated to provide for their children in the home, school, and socially, and such essential obligations should not be dismissed. In situations where a child is neglected or not properly cared for, they may feel derided when interacting with children who are well-provided for. The child may experience difficulties with studying effectively and providing a full contribution to classroom events (Amatea, 2013). Mindful parents/guardians should ensure their child is provided comfort and understand their well-being is important to them. Then again, pampering spoiled children could cause a distraction from their learning. Parents/guardians are subsequently encouraged to provide the necessities significant in the development of the child and facilitate learning smoothly when pursuing exceptional performance. In conclusion, building trust past the classroom is one more part of enhancing parents/guardians' contribution in educational concerns. In society today, there are instances of family emergencies that can affect the child/children tremendously. Home visits reinforce self- taught connections and provide positive behaviors. Also, these visits will provide the teacher with an understanding of the background of the child and how to develop ways of treating the child while attending school. This specific partnership between parents/guardians, teacher, and the students inclines toward favoring knowledge acquisition and forge for the best instructive accomplishments for the individuals involved.
