Parent-Teacher Partnership in Educating the child!

The family together acts only with love and respect and it dominates the
understanding, affection, sacrifice, and childcare. In this way, a family
environment is created, where we may live, laugh, and raise our children.

“Educating a child is a shared responsibility”

Shouldering Responsibility
The parents play a significant role in their children’s general growth and
education because it is they who are responsible for the children’s total
physical and intellectual development up until the point at which they
become independent and are prepared to meet the difficulties of their
society. While parents are aware of the labour involved in a child’s
development, they also require pedagogical information regarding their
child’s right to an education.
The development of the child’s personality within the home and in society
at large is the emphasis of the parent’s role in the overall development of
their children. According to some reports, the so-called “environment for
children’s development” is usually viewed from the perspective of three
interrelated aspects or dimensions, such as;

  • Parental satisfaction or delight in their children’s accomplishments.
  • Needs and stress impose the parental role in the process.
  • The perception of the parental competencies concerning their children’s general development.

Mirroring Family Atmosphere

The early years of a child’s life are when they begin receiving an education
for life in a particular family. It mostly consists of gaining experience, which
is typically influenced by ongoing learning. In this sense, parents and the
family as a whole serve as both direct leaders and supporters of the
implementation of their children’s education. As one of the primary
influencing variables, this can be viewed as the fundamental aspect that,
without a doubt, has a stronger impact on the general formation and
development of the human personality. The majority of the time, when
parents get involved in their kids’ education, the results are favorable and
motivating.

In this regard, they frequently collaborate and behave following their
parental attitudes, which are communicated through their sharing of
information about the children’s capacities and overall learning capacity in
a way that encourages success in learning and views education as a complex
process. As a result, parents should help their kids with their homework
because doing so allows them to provide their support as a parent, which is
one of the main factors in helping their kids succeed in school.

The Partnership between Parent and Teacher

Parental encouragement and support for learning activities at home
combined with parental involvement in schooling are critical to children’s
education. A growing body of research shows that building effective
partnerships between parents, families, and schools to support children’s
learning leads to improved learning outcomes.

Parents are the first and continuing educators of their children. According
to research, effective parental engagement also depends on the quality of
the teachers, who must also adhere to certain criteria and get parental
engagement training.

Productive Partnership

The importance of productive partnerships between students, parents,
careers, families, schools, and the broader community in maximizing student
engagement, considered broadly, parental engagement consists of
partnerships between families, schools, and communities, raising parental
awareness of the benefits of engaging in their children’s education, and
providing them with the skills to do so.
The parameters and purposes of education are being redefined by
collaborations between parents and the community. They increase parental
and community capability and foster environments that help kids learn more
efficiently. They expand the boundaries of education in this way.
According to research, parental involvement influences a variety of
measures of student accomplishment, including:

  • Higher grades and test scores
  • Enrolment in higher-level programs and advanced classes
  • Lower drop-out rates
  • Higher graduation rates
  • A greater likelihood of commencing tertiary education.

Being Beyond Academics
Beyond educational achievement, parental engagement is associated with various indicators of student development.
These include:

  • Better social skills
  • Improved behavior
  • Better adaptation to school
  • Increased social capital
  • A greater sense of personal competence and efficacy for learning
  • Greater engagement in school work
  • A stronger belief in the importance of education.
