Thoughtful Parenting: How Parent Involvement Benefit Children?

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.

Tips on the Role of Parent Involvement in Child’s Life –

Parent involvement in the child’s life has many benefits, as we discussed above. 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. Guide them to follow some basic rules of moral, social, behavioral lifestyle. Be friendly with them, but don’t cross the boundary of the parent-child relationship.

Bring in positive manifestation by repeatedly telling – You love them and we are family. Open studies on various forums have mentioned about showing love and affection for each other strengthens the parent-child relationship. So, next time when you pick up the phone or see your child, don’t forget to say the magical words.
