Parent Involvement with Children's Education

Get involved with your child's education before its too late...

Your children are going to head off to school soon and parent involvement is very critical in a child's development. Studies have proven that the more active parents are with their child's educational development, the more likely they will have better behavior, achieve better in academics and go farther in their education. Start your child's education off with great reinforcements.

Family Involvement

As a parent you have a busy schedule, working 40+ hours a week, driving your kids to and from soccer practice and preparing home cooked meals every night, by the time you get home all you want to do is put your feet up and relax. But then you have to think, when will your child receive the extra attention they need in their studies? Even though you send them off to school everyday, they still need parents' active involvement at home. When your child comes to you for advice or support on their education, this shows critical messages to your child, demonstrating their interest and reinforcing the idea that school is important. As a parent, you can be involved in your child's education through several different activities.

Gearing Up for Kindergarten recommends a variety of parent-child involvement websites through our FACEBOOK page, where you can read online books, research articles, play games and find other activities for you and your family to participate in together.
