SAT prep in West Caldwell, NJ

03/20/2015
Students with parents who are involved in their education tend to have fewer behavioral problems and better academic performance. Positive effects of parental involvement have been demonstrated at both the elementary and secondary levels of education.  Here at The Tutoring Center in West Caldwell, NJ, we understand that circumstances make a difference in parental involvement, but we would like to share some information on this subject to help you as the parent become involved in different ways.

Benefits of Involvement

It allows parents to monitor school and classroom activities. To coordinate their efforts with teachers to encourage acceptable classroom behavior and ensure that the children complete their schoolwork. Teachers of students with involved parents tend to give greater attention to those students. Good parent-teacher interactions, have been found to positively affect the teachers’ self-perception and job satisfaction as well.

Over Involvement

Sometimes well-intentioned parental over-involvement can be destructive. A parent may end up doing a child's homework or take-home graded assignments in a mistaken effort to have their child get good grades. This is the same as a parent taking over and driving a car in order to teach a child how to drive: it may appear to work for a while, but ultimately it prevents the child from learning.

We know that the role of parents in their child's education is crucial to help set the stage for success. Get involved enough in order to know exactly in which areas your child need assistance so you can help him/her. We also know that making room for our children to engage freely in their education can be a balancing act. Getting involved too much or too little in social and academic life can be detrimental.
