In this article, I would like to discuss the importance of parents collaborating with children and helping them reach their daily goals.
I have already written a post on how parenting can impact early education.
Listen to the podcast here.
Few Reasons why Parents need to get involved in Child's Education.
Why do parents need to collaborate with teachers?
Ways to build confidence in parents towards collaborating in child's study.
Let’s deep dive and read the article.
It is essential to do a SWOT exercise (Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities & threats) with kids as parents. It will help you find a way forward for your child’s future.
Pressuring children to study the subject of parent’s choices has never been a good idea. Children should follow their dreams, No matter what.
Many people think if a child wants to become a photographer instead of becoming a Doctor or an Engineer, let him be the photographer because it’s his choice to study mass communication or media sciences.
That child can make a handsome amount from his selection of subjects as well.
On the other hand, most of the parents believe that the university. Children should only study the subjects that help them in their future as a strong career such as Doctor, Engineer, Chartered Accountant, businessman, etc.
Parents believe that this is less beneficial for Children to study the subjects like arts and commerce.
They prefer them to study science subjects in university with proper consoling.
Must Watch Video-
If parents pressure their kids from home about their grades, how can they gain better social skills?
Only well-mannered and sportive parents make their child perform better whether in class or any other field of his life.
This is necessary for parents to support and provide a healthy and friendly environment for their kids to groom in every field.
What parents need to learn is the techniques of appreciating their kids. Appreciating may motivate their kids to enhance their study skills.
That’s why supportive parents play an essential role in making their children successful.
In most cases, kids in school need more attention and care than all growing up kid’s parents need to become friends, facilitators, and teachers for them.
What parents should do is to be in touch with their kid’s academic life, homework, progress, helping them out in quizzes, help them prepare for school projects, etc.?
Having a healthy relationship with kid’s schools is a must for parents.
Few Reasons Why Parents Need To Get Involved In Child’s Education-
- Better Grades –
The parents involved with their kid’s education can actually help children get higher grades in class. It actually only depends upon how much parents are involved in a child’s education.
The more you involve, the higher grades child will get. Parents can help children to improve the subjects which they are not good at.
- Good Behavior –
Children develop better social skills and behave better when parents attend school.
Studies also show that children are less likely to go to school, less likely to disrupt class, and more likely to do housework when their parents collaborate with their studies.
From a study, we found out that when parents, especially fathers, are heavily involved in school, their kids enjoy school and are less likely to repeat grades.
The risk factor of failing in Children becomes lesser, and Children performed better than they usually do.
- Education Improvement –
From one research, we get to know that collaboration of parents with students’ education can improve the quality of their student’s school, raise teacher morale, and improve a school’s reputation in the community.
Parents are involved and gain the respect of teachers. As a result, teachers have higher expectations of their children teacher gives special treatment to their kids.
Joining pays off in the long term. The children who spend most of their time in schools are more likely to think about their higher education and other educational plans.
- Better Confidence-
When children know that teachers and parents both support them, they will definitely feel motivated and confident.
This only happens because of teacher and parent collaboration with student’s education.
A positive attitude has just formed in a student, and he/she became motivated to do his school work.
Why Do Parents Need To Collaborate With Teachers?
Parents can increase the child’s education by involvement in the classroom and at home. Collaborative forms will help parents talk about their child’s growth.
Teachers will find great advice on how parents can help their children grow. Tapping to help parents will help teachers learn effectively about children.
Advice For Teachers-
It doesn’t matter if a teacher is a well-experienced teacher or a fresher they will find out something new which they never experienced before.
Where they find resources of working with their children in school, they find out parents behave with their kids by talking with parents and using strategies for teaching at different grades.
Conferences Between Parents And Teachers.
Conferences between parents and teachers are the most crucial time of the academic year.
Parents and teachers come together to make sure children are progressing and work out ways to help them both succeed.
Even parents also need to act patient and positive towards school staff, encouraging more parent involvement.
They need to understand that what a teacher says to Children is defiantly for the child’s betterment because they all are experts in their own jobs.
Actually, some parents do not collaborate with teachers if the teacher acts strictly on a student. There should be an element of trust.
Develop A Two-Way Communication Between Parents And Teachers.
Many steps are needed to develop effective two-way communication between a parent and a teacher.
Firstly they should consider the best ways to reach the student’s families. They can do it by emailing them or writing them a letter, or communicating with apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, or any other kind of app of their choice.
Next, consider ways to encourage parents and family to engage in your communication and respond.
If a teacher shares a project video with their student parent, they should invite parents to send questions or events.
Many parents only hear from teachers or schools if they are facing any problem. When they feel comfortable communicating, teachers can gain insights into Children’s strengths, weaknesses, victories, or troubles.
Lastly, check your communication system regularly throughout the year.
Ways To Build Parents’ Confidence Towards Collaborating In Child’s Study-
It takes time to develop the skills of parents and families in schools. Teach parents by delivering ideas and modeling instructions through pictures or short films.
Or make a private channel on social media platforms such as Instagram to share the best practical education guidance and creative ways to enhance the joy of learning which Children really don’t want to.
Mostly, a single picture of a kid following the lines with shaving cream or looking for 90-degree angles while walking around the school gives parents new ideas to learn.
And this can remind parents that they are also participating in student collaboration.
Every parent wants to do best for his/her child and wants to see him as a successful person, and they also want him to be successful in every field of his life, but the first field should be their education almost every parent want their child to get the highest grades in the whole class.
If they want this, then they should give their kid an environment that should be very supportive and friendly for children to perform well.
However, many parents do not believe in performing well and relying on schools to improve their children’s educational endeavors.
Whenever the parents cooperate in student’s education systems in schools and other educational institutions, all stakeholders take advantage of it.
Tools are provided for the enhancement if parents become empowered to play a very influential role in collaborating with Children in education in their own places like their own home, car, and park or anywhere they want.
Even teachers are also assigned at schools and also at homes who are committed to learning more.
Children learn and thrive in a mutually supportive and complementary home and school environment.
Although family engagement requires effort and commitment to create a military culture, the results can profoundly affect school communities.
I believe that parents play an essential role in making their kid successful, but teachers also help groom.
Still, I also think that if a child is studying an inadequate subject which has no future, then he should follow his parents’ recommendations should study the subject which his parents decide he may become successful instead of wasting his time on a topic which has no future.
I believe that parents always think good and better for their children. If the student becomes successful, his parents become happier than him.
During the pandemic, schools are closed, and it is all online now. Parents have more time to spend with kids and help them develop skills.
