As parents and guardians of our children, it is our duty and responsibility to ensure that they receive the proper educations. Although we can fully handling our children education by ourselves that does not mean that we can put all the responsibility to educate our children to someone else such as school teacher. Our involvement in educating our children can become the important key to develop and bring out their potential.
The first teacher that a child has is their parents or guardians. They teach the children how to walk, talk and behave while the children are growing. Therefore they also can involve in their children further education to ensure the children success, both in school and life.
Parent’s involvement in children school education
There are many things that parents can do to support and encourage their children education. Many thing around the house and environment that can become education material such as doing some activities that can be done together, playing, house chores, singing, reading activities and many more. Therefore the parents do not have to particularly provide special time to educate their children at home.
And parents can also support their children education from school from home. They can talk about the school, helping with their task once in a while, providing study material such as books, listening and discussing to their trouble at school, develop the habit of regular study and homework. These supports can help the children to improve their learning ability in school.
Parents can also participate in school activities such as chaperone, sport activities, school events, or joining the teacher and parents’ association. In this matter parents need to provide special time for these activities. Therefore for some parents such as single parents may be only able to spare a little time for it such as attending to a school event.
It would be better if the parents can establish a relationship or communication with the teachers. Therefore they can exchange information regarding the children, so there will be mutual understanding about the children, so the parents will not blindly defend or accusing their children completely when there is a trouble without understanding and knowing all the facts.
It is not easy to be responsible parents or guardians; it will take a lot of your patience and time. But it is a necessary effort and sacrifice to help and develop the children potential and enhance the relationship between parents and their children until the end of time.
