Your child’s academic success is dependant on several factors, one of which is parental involvement. Studies have shown that when parents take an interest in their child’s private preschool education, they often see their children exceed in multiple areas. When you send your child off to school, don’t assume that your participation will not be required. As the following considerations show, you play an integral role in your child’s present and future educational achievement.
The children of involved parents perform better academically
The most compelling result of parental involvement is higher scholastic performance by the child. When parents get involved by helping with homework or quizzing for tests, their children often get better grades than children who are not supported nor motivated by their parents.
The children of involved parents have better self-esteem
Showing an interest in your child’s schooling and activities shows your child that you care about them. Consequentially, they will be happier and more confident, which translates into a healthier self-image.
The children of involved parents are better behaved in school
Children are led by example. When you care about their schooling and activities, they learn to do the same. When they believe that school is important, they will tend to listen more intently during class, cooperate better with their classmates, and show more respect to their teachers.
The children of involved parents are less likely to require special education
Some children will have learning difficulties no matter how involved their parents may be. However, involved parents will typically be able to detect earlier and more easily if their child has a learning challenge. As a result, parents and educators may be able to address these concerns before the child falls behind in school and requires special education.
