The most widely agreed upon definition of parental involvement has been the degree to which the parent commits to the role of being a parent and helping the child achieve optimal development (Kusterer, 2010). This can be achieved through communication, helping with school work at the home, becoming involved with school functions, and participating in learning tasks for the children. Parents who are involved in their child’s educational development participate in these aspects of the child’s learning environment. Previous research has shown that when parents maintain involvement in the child’s education during adolescence that it helps to facilitate the child’s... ... middle of paper ... ...y was distributed to the educational professionals which is located in appendix c.

For practitioners to plan effectively towards children’s development needs, parent partnership is essential because parents are the child’s first educators. Fitzgerald (2004) stated that “partnerships within early years settings are about reciprocal relationships: the influence that the family has on the setting and the influence of the setting on the family”. Parent partnership has several key features, one of which is that practitioners know the needs of the child. Practitioners need to know how the child is and how their needs are so they can fulfil them to the best of their ability. In Early Years settings daily sheets are filled out to inform parents about their child’s progress throughout the day, practitioners then feedback to parents about the child’s overall day.
All a child is looking for is a lot of love and support but there is so much more that goes along with the task you take as a parent. Parenting should involve spending time with your kids, chatting with them daily, teaching them right from wrong, teaching them manners, teaching them to share, loving them, playing with them, teaching them what respect is and installing moral values in them. (Lane) Not only does a parent take on the title of a role model, they are also take on the role of being the most important teacher their child will come across in their life. Teaching them love, honor and respect is only the start. Many parents don't seem to understand that they are molding our next generation and that our children take what they learn at home and what they learned growing up and apply it to their lives and how they will raise their children.
The importance of parents to remain constantly involved in the life of their children in regards to education is paramount to the success of the child’s education. As education provides the foundation that is needed in personal life as well as career, motivation is more apt to appear in the behavior of children with the presence of involved parents. More and more today, the support and guidance that is needed by children are becoming essential. Children may not understand the severity of how important education is until parents are able to discuss the unlimited possibilities that exist when education is placed as a priority. The influence that a parent has on a child by constantly being involved in their education often helps the child to not only meet the standards in education but exceed the standards.
These same styles of teaching are also observed within the home. Diana Baumrind discovered that there are different styles of parenting that every child experiences from different behaviors or attitudes. First parenting styles are Authoritative which is when parents are more demanding but sensitive and responsive to their children. This parent sets clear rules that are expected to be followed but when a rule is broken they do not shame there child. The child is pulled aside, reminded the child of rules, and talk through on how to correct the behavior like a warning.
Mia Kellmer Pringle promoted viewing the child holistically. Learning is done across all aspects of a child’s life and it should not be separated into different categories. Adults often do not realise the effect early childhood experiences have on children. The experiences a child has from the start of their life shapes their mind and contributes to their views of the world in the future. In order for parents and practitioners to meet the needs of the child they must implement a framework which includes loving relationships, engagement with the environment, holistic development, respecting individuality and ensuring

The first is in the area of Parent Knowledge and Skills. Here we have the opportunity to not only acquire more information in regards to the child, but also give information to the child’s parents on ways in which they can assist their son/daughter with their education. According to George S. Morrison, we the educators are to “Assist families with parenting and child-rearing skills, understanding child and adolescent development, and setting home conditions that support children as students at each age and grade level.” (MORRISON, 2009, p. 491) Through a partnership with the child’s parents, we the educators are assisted in understanding the families in which the children come from. This arms us with knowledge that allows us to adjust our teaching skills suitably to the children’s different learning styles as well as helps the parents to know where their child is at within... ... middle of paper ... ...e the community comes together to care for and assist children.
