For preschool children, literacy enhancing activities in the home such as singing songs, playing games, reciting rhymes, and drawing pictures improve literacy and language outcomes. These are very supportive activities that provide a nurturing environment where a child grows and learns and also provide the essential needs that motivate active learning within the child. Therefore, parental involvement is vital in supporting a child’s literacy development (Anderson, 2007). Although the parent might not be physically in the classroom setting, they still show their support of their child’s education, including literacy development by being available and providing support with homework. The child may interpret the parent’s lack of involvement as an indication that school is not important and may lose motivation.Overall, research has figured out that parental involvement does make a difference to pupils’ engagement and their achievement and the evidence indicates that parental involvement benefits students, parents, teachers and schools.
Lack of Parental Involvement in Education There is a great problem in education these days and the lack of parental involvement in their child or student’s lives are to blame for the negative effects that educational institutions go through. There are many contributions to bad grades and many student’s failing exam scores. Positive study habits and tips are not enforced by one’s parents or guardians in and out of the classroom. There is also the lack of developing relationships between a child or student and the parent, there is no communication that is involved that could possibly help strengthen relationships and build a positive bond. Some parents are just unaware of the negative consequences of not being involved in their child’s education.
The impacts continue on until the child becomes an adult and it reappears in their relationship or work habits as an adult. The people who have experienced such child abuse create relationships in order for them to feel protected. They also seek relationships because they want to be cared for and are afraid of abandonment (Herman 111). Sadly, people who are survivors of Chronic Child abuse are more prone to be victimized as well as allow themselves to be hurt because they have a skewed belief that they deserve nothing better (Herman 111). A child who have experienced Chronic Child Abuse often times have more difficulty transitioning into adulthood because of their abnormal state of consciousness and disturbance in their normal bodily functions caused by their altered personality, emotion, and behavior (133).
Parents negative responses towards an event influences their child 's behavior. Child abuse leaves child with long lasting effects of injuries and physical illnesses. Parents that abuse their child typically come from abusive childhoods themselves. They commonly began to abuse because of unrealistic expectation, alcohol and drugs, lack of support, emotional disorders. The center for disease, control, and prevention stated in their article “Child Abuse and Neglect: Consequences”, “At least one in four children have experienced child neglect or abuse at some point in their lives, and one in seven children experienced abuse or neglect in the last year” (Center for disease, control, and prevention, 3).
In all families, child abuse does occur even though we look the children are very happy from outside. Based on the research done by Janet Curie and Erdal Tekkin (2006), among the factors for child abuse are parents with lack of parenting skills. Some caregivers or parents never learn the skills on how to raise their kids. Teen parents, for example might have unrealistic expectations about how much care small children need or parents may raise their children as the way they were raised. Alcohol and drugs abuse are the most risky factor contributing to child abuse.
Although more research is needed to find out the true impact of parenting education it 's clear that parenting education is both needed and effective. I personally believe that there is a need for parenting education it not only effective, but a key tool for parents to better raise their children if they need the help. Offering parents, the tools to be better parents is a key component in better child care and protection. More child welfare agencies need to continue investing and implement parenting education programs in order to help families become healthier and
Besides, the long term ever growing behavioral, social and thinking results of child abuse on victimized kids are additional. Research conducted on child maltreatment give enough knowledge and understanding which can benefits sufferers of ill-treatment, or neglect, etc. Such victims also need to be given equal attention just as burn victims, sufferers of infections or genetic diseases, etc. Such victims are also socially dormant or lack self-confidence. They are also not active politically.
Firstly, a good parent would protect his or her child from physical, sexual and emotional abuse from anyone. For example, a single mother with daughters and is dating or in a relationship with a male panther must be very careful with her daughter or daughters among him especially if he’s spending too much time and attention to her daughter. As a dating single mother, your children are at high risk of being sexual or physical abuse, the headline of the newspapers is imprinted with so many sexual abuses to children under the age of sixteen. As’ parent’s take a silent oath to protect their children and avoid them from being tortured or abused. Secondly, a good parent would keep all unsafe objects locked up or out of the reach of his or her child.
Reporting of child abuse occur every ten seconds (Childhelp.org). Children who deal with abuse can develop a series of problems as they age. Parental abuse can lead children to future domestic abuse, alcoholism, depression, unintended pregnancies, liver disease and more Bad parenting, although a vicious cycle, can be resolved. It takes forming healthy habits independently, seeking for more, and acting with purpose. If you aren’t ready to take on the responsibility of child care, don’t force
EFFECTS OF PARENTS AND TEACHERS INTRACTION ON DELOPMENT OF EARLY CHILDHOOD STUDENTS IN MIANWALI 1.1 Introduction: The importance of good parent-teacher relationships has been well documented. Research has shown that parent involvement in education benefits not only the child but also the parents and teachers (Eldridge, 2001). The function of a good parent-teacher relationship is much more than just like a vehicle for status reports from teacher to parents on a child’s performance. It is true a partnership providing two way information flow from the teacher to the parents about the child’s classroom achievements and persona and from the parent to the teacher about the complementary elements in the home environment. It provides the mechanism
