Parents are the most important influences in their child’s education next to their teacher. “…research shows conclusively that parents’ involvement in their children’s education confers great benefits, both intellectual and emotional, on their children” (Coleman, 1). This is why it is so important for parents to get involved in their children’s lives at an early age. Home schooling is a wonderful way to be involved. One of the main reasons that so many people are attempting to home school their children is because of the freedoms offered by it.

There are many ways families can be involved in the education process. The parent is the child’s most valuable teacher for their whole life. The most benefit this will bring to the families is confidence. Teachers need to help the parents know that they can assist in their child’s education and can help them at home. There are workshops and training to help families get involved.
What are ways to get parents to assist their child at home, will the parents’ assistance with reading increase the child’s reading performance at school? Review of the Literature Brock & Edmunds (2010) noted that parental involvement had always been assessed and viewed through the perspectives of teachers and/ or students. The elements of this study were to get parents’ viewpoints, to identify what is important in the teacher- parent- student relationship; to define parental involvement as the various activities that contribute to (a) Home School Communication (HSC); and/or (b) Learning at Home (LH); gain a better understanding of parental involvement and identify barriers regarding to parental involvement during intermediate years grades 7 and 8 (Brock & Edmunds, 2010). The research question in the article is: What are the barriers and opportunities of parental involvement? Two schools from Ontario were selected for the study, two hundred forty- five parents of seventh and eighth grade students in the two schools were asked to take part in responding to a Home- School Survey (HSS), a total of 116 parents replied to the survey.

Parental Involvement in Early Education: A Review of the Literature Introduction A child’s first teacher is his or her mother and father. As a parent, involvement in the education process in the early years includes engaging the child through age appropriate games, regular reading, and simply interacting on a daily basis. A child that is engaged in this way are set up to develop into students who succeed academically. Once that child attends school, parental involvement shows that the parent places value on education. Furthermore, “staying connected to the classroom gives you ideas of how to expand what she learns at school,” (Driscoll & Nagel, 2010) thus providing parents with additional tools to implement in the home to continue the teaching process even after the school day has ended.
One of the questions I had from the start of the class was ways to get parents involved in their child’s journey to become life-long learners and readers. Through this class I have learned the importance of parental involvement in the successfulness of students’. Home environment places a crucial role in the development of the mind’s of students. This class has encouraged me to reach out to each of my parents to ensure that my students have access to quality literature in their home. For Christmas, I purchased each of my students a book based on their elementary reading attitude survey (ERAS) as well as their reading interest inventory.
This article explores how motivation can be pursued through the use of literacy experiences in non-traditional contexts (informal learning environments) as they provide authentic opportunities for literacy engagement through a variety of integrated instructional experiences. Situational interests, choice, goals, emotions and personal competency beliefs were proven to impact motivation towards students reading. Qualitative research was addressed by examining tutor reflections of students to determine themes regarding children’s motivation, as well as quantitative research that included the computation of descriptive statistics and paired samples on a total score of motivation. The crucial key from this article was that educational experiences in informal learning environments could increase children’s reading motivation (Putman & Walker, 2010). 2.
