We are well aware of the effects of parent involvement in a child’s education and primary development. Many pieces of research have shown highly motivating results of parent involvement in early education. Kids perform better academically and in over-all activities with high parent involvement. Whereas those with least involvement, perform poorly in studies and other associated activities.
Schools and families are two closely-knit epicenters for the child’s early learning and behavioral growth. Hence, parental involvement in school brings a positive manifestation in children which reflects in their cognitive and socio-personal relationships too.
Benefits of Parent Involvement in Kid’s School –
Responsive or active parenting involves a higher degree of parental influence in early education. Cognition and brain development help children to cope with future pressures and challenges. With active parenting, in the beginning, you build a bridge between expectations and efforts.

However, it is often seen that parents go to extremes by either getting too strict or selfishly loving with their children. The balance is hard to obtain, as every situation brings out a fresh challenge for parents. But, in most of the cases, the child suffers long-lasting effects of forced involvement by their parents.
Love them unconditionally but, have boundaries. Children need to be told about the pattern, behavior, rules, and boundaries from the beginning.
