IMPORTANCE OF PARENTS IN SCHOOL
At the age of 5 or 6 years old children send off to school. It is a mixed emotions when some of the children get excited to see many playmates and learned different energetic and social skills some are crying and want to go home early with their parents.
But we should remember that school is the most important institution in our life. It is our second home. A place where we can gain knowledge, values, skills, friends, a brighter future and the ability for us to become a better person.
Although school plays a crucial role in child’s development. Some children or students are still lack of interest in learning and so what they always do is to cut or skip their classes. Teachers find this very alarming. A lot of possible destructions keeping them from studying. The use of internet particularly the different social networking sites found in the “net” drag them away from books and making them addicted to these sites. They are also hooked on online games and different applications that excite them and attract their attention to keep on doing such.
Lack of guidance and attention is another factor to consider. This may root the lack of encouragement and motivation from either parents or other teachers. Encouragement and support for learning activities at home combined with parental involvement in schooling creates learning effectively.
Parents should get involved in child’s education it could help them to get better grades and reduce behaviour problems at the same time. Keep their discipline and confidence they have in their selves.
It is not hard to participate and guide children in school. Time management at home and parents can easily do for them to monitor their child in moulding them to become a better person.
