Parenting practices/parenting styles Interaction between parents and children in this thesis in the context of parents’ struggle to find an appropriate answer to their children’s questions, could be also define as parenting styles (Darling & Steinberg 1993). Darlin and Steinberg (1993) define the parenting styles as parents’ behaviors and characteristics which is the important part of parent-child interaction and relationships over a wide range of situations. Some of the parents’ styles which are discussed in the literature are presented in the following. The importance of parental expectations of children is described in Ochs and Schieffelin (1984).

Lareau’s concept of division of responsibilities illustrates the reasons why middle-class children do than working class children. As Lareau argues, the division of responsibilities occurs between teachers and parents, meaning teachers focus on education and parents focus on home activities. In working class families, the common approach to education comes in the form of separation between family and school, meaning school life and home life are threated as two separate entities. Likewise, Lareau presented her argument in terms of parental criticisms. In working class families, parents feel intimidated at school because they do not possess needed information about schools.
The quality of an IEP plan can vary based on factors such as the school, a teacher, and the child’s individual characteristics. Researcher’s of this study consider an IEP to be an “educational map for children with disabilities” (Ruble, McGrew, Dalrymple, & Jung 2010). Previous research addressed in this article indicated that in recent years IEPs have received some negative feedback from parents who believe that their child’s education plan is inconsistent and has unrealistic expectations. As a result, numerous legal battles have arisen between angry parents and school boards. Researchers of this study were interested in developing a tool that measures an IEP’s ability to successfully help children with ASD and examine the relationship between IEP quality, the teacher, and the
As a teacher, working with exceptional scholars is a challenge in itself: we do not always understand their way of thinking, why they think that way, or even why they do what they do. While some exceptional scholars are affected less, others have more severe disorders and/or disabilities that greatly contribute to the classroom environment and the basis for instruction. One challenge that I might face as a teacher when working with exceptional scholars is a lack of parental support; therefore it is crucial that as the teacher, I am able to keep in frequent contact with my parents, specifically when concerned about an exceptional scholar. It’s pivotal that from the beginning of the school year, communication begins on a daily basis. This
This person primary responsibility is to oversee the progress of the village by empowering the parent/guardian with resources and strategies to assist the student.

For Chin community’s children, many people came to the United States at a young age that they barely know anything about their culture. It was hard for them to live in a mix-cultures because they are comfortable with the American culture, yet they also acquire to live with their parents’ culture. However, inside of their household, their parents taught them their culture’s tradition and show them certain part of the tradition.

What do parents want to see in place for them to become more involved in their students education? Significance of the Study This study has implications for educators, school districts parent and students. Parent engagement intervention and prevention studies occur in comprehensive schools but parent engagement research in an alternative education setting is minimal to non-existent. As a result of this study school districts will recognize a need to create and reengage parents in their students education as a means for student academic success. The significance of this study will allow at risk youth who are on probation and/or have been expelled to bond and engage in their education.
Research has shown that lack of individuality and comfort among student results due to student wearing uniforms. Deciding on whether uniforms are right for your child depends on individual circumstances. There have also been a lot of questions about whether public school uniforms are excellent for children.

Students grades will improve with later start times. According to Kyla Wahlstrom “Academic performance outcomes, including grades earned in core subject areas of math, English, science and social studies, plus performance on state and national achievement tests, attendance rates and reduced tardiness show significantly positive improvement with the later start times of 8:35 AM or later.”(1) This quote explains that students will have higher academic outcomes. With starting later students are able to make it to school on time, causing them not to miss classes.
