A few accreditation programs include NAEYC, The National Association for the Education of Young Children, NECPA, National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (Douglass 89-94); and specific to Pennsylvania, Keystone Stars. If a daycare receives NAYEC accreditation then they are the crème de la crème of early childhood programs. Parents recognize NAEYC accreditation as a mark of high quality and are more inclined to send their child to that daycare center. Centers that are NAEYC accredited have stronger team of teachers, administrators, and families working together to improve quality for children (Why NAEYC Accreditation). NECPA accreditation in child care center also attracts families to enroll their center there because they know their child will receive quality care.
Whereas responsiveness is defined as parents provision of emotional warmth and provision of support to their children and its acceptance by them. The Emotional Warmth and acceptance of the parents develop the trustworthy relation in grown-ups. Positive parenting makes the child independent and confident. The children’s who comes from loving and accepting families are more likely to have positive traits then children who come from unloving, rejecting families. Healthy emotional parenting developed the high emotional support in children of at adolescent stage of life.
The level of involvement is often questioned by the parents; however, research suggests that “the more intensively parents are involved in their children’s learning, the more beneficial are the achievement effects” (Cotton and Wikelund, 2002, p. 2). It is believed that when parents monitor homework, encourage participation in extracurricular activities, are active in parent-teacher associations, and help children develop plans for their future, children are more likely to respond and do well in school. There are indications that prove that the most effective form of parental involvement is when the parents work directly with their child. Researchers find that the more activity each parent puts in, there will be greater achievement for that student in comparison to the children with passive parents. When parents actively participate, that is work with their children, attend their activities, and help in the classroom, greater achievement is noted.

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.
This allows for a healthier parent-child relationship, which in turn provides a healthier environment for a child in regards to other aspects of his or her life too. One study shows that authoritative parenting is the best parenting style in terms of academic achievement due to the willingness of authoritative parents to be much more engaged in the lives of their adolescents, and to offer support whenever they needed it the most (Dotterer & Wehrspann, 2015). This study points out that parental involvement in school is critical as it shows a child that the parents are truly interested, and invested, in their lives, and it also provides these children with a way to become engaged in the school themselves. One other study showed that parental involvement and support was a huge difference maker in academics, as when parents started to become less involved, the children’s grades started to slightly drop (Spera, 2005). This study points out that authoritative parents who are involved are providing an example to their children about the way in which they want their children to be.
I believe that my personal teaching style will be similar to my parenting style which is most definitely an authoritative style. This style gives structure, but is nurturing. Authoritative parents give children choices within reason or limits. This gives children some control over their decisions. Overall children of authoritative parents grow up to be happier well rounded adults.
Over the years studies have found patterns in parenting styles and their effects on children. "Parenting isn’t only a collection of skills, rules, and tricks of the trade (Lloyd, Carol. 2012)”, it defines who you become, reflects your culture and represents values important in a family. Parenting style has a long term impact on a child’s development, success and outlook on life. The three styles of parenting are permissive parenting/hands-off parenting , authoritarian parenting, authoritative parenting .Studies revealed that the authoritative parenting style results in the highest success rates for their children in school and in social aspects, thus creating a stable child (Lloyd, Carol.2012).
Patient and calm parents influences their children’s behavior in everyday situation. For example, parents who are always running late in doing something important for their children play a major role in affecting the children on how to handle pressures and deadlines. Some parents have attitudes of respecting others and also their children. These types of parent would be more graceful for raising children because of the higher chance that the children would be more confident in doing something harmful by doing it more effectively and also the children would be a good and respecting people as they growth up.
