COOPERATION AND GUIDANCE
One of the most important factors affecting child performance in school is the involvement of their parents in their education. Parent-teachers relationship is the best way to improve child performance in school.
Nowadays, some of the parents didn’t know this relationship, because they don’t even go to school during cards out day. They do not ask the teachers about their child performance in school. Also, they don’t go to school when the teachers ask for a meeting. They do not cooperate when it comes to school matters. Remember that teacher is the second parent of their children so parents must be the first person who will support and guide their children.
There are some students who deeply need the guidance of their parents especially those who are hardly to read and write and those who need discipline. How will the teachers handle this situation alone? Yes, they can if it is class hours but how about when they go home? Parents and teachers must have the same goals for the children. It is they want each individual to do their best, to learn and to have good attitude.
As a teacher, we want our learners to learn and to have discipline we can easily do that by the cooperation of their parents. We have to work hand in hand to achieve our goal for our children.
