It is Necessary to Start and Remain Involved in Your Child's Education

No matter what grade your child or teen is in, you can help them reach greater academic achievements by making the right effort to stay involved in their education. Even if your child is already in high school, it is never too late to start reaping the results of being an active part of their academic journey. That is why we want to share some easy to follow advice on how to stay involved in your child's academics.

What Does it Mean to be Involved in Your Child's Academic Life?

Being involved in your child's academic life implicates many things. It means participating in your child's school, taking an active part in their education, being aware of their academic interests (even those outside of school), and working together with their teachers. This can all seem like a lot of work and it may be overwhelming, especially since we know parents have a lot going on. However, all of this is actually less complicated than what it seems. Yes, there are many events and opportunities at your child's school that offer you the chance to participate, get involved, volunteer, and attend, but it doesn't mean you need to go to all of them. The key is to stay in communication with your child's teachers and be aware of important school events and meetings. You can choose and plan to attend those events that are most crucial and relevant to you and your child.

School Involvement vs. Educational Involvement

  • Educational involvement. There is a big difference between being involved in your child's education and being involved in their school. Being involved in your child's school is part of being involved in their education but it isn't all of it. Staying involved in your child's education goes further than just taking part in school activities and events. It involves being an active part of their learning process. Helping with homework, checking to make sure they complete assignments, and knowing when they have exams and deadlines are all important ways to stay involved in their education. As students progress and reach higher education levels, their needs for more professional academic help may also increase. It is important to count on the expertise of tutors and other academic programs that can provide your child with professional help and support. For more information on how they can help your child succeed  throughout their academic life and in all school subjects, contact The Tutoring Center, San Ramon CA today at 925 362 3320.
  • School involvement. Being involved in your child's school means taking an active part in events, activities, meetings, and fundraisers. It can mean volunteering, working with the school staff, helping out with events, or being part of the PTA. Not all parents can do this all the time, but periodically making the effort to do so also makes a big difference. By helping your child's school you are also helping your child and showing them that their education is worthwhile. It also sets a more motivating tone for them to strive to do better and helps them be more active academically. It also gives you a closer look at how the staff and teachers work so that you can work more closely with them towards improving your child's education.

Some of the Benefits of Staying Involved in Your Child's Education

  • Students whose parents are involved in their education are ten times more likely to complete high school and have a higher chance of reaching higher levels of education.
  • They are also less prone to face school problems or get into mischief and troublesome situations.
  • Parent involvement in schools greatly decreases the chances of students ditching school and improves attendance records.
  • When parents are involved it also tends to help students get better grades and score higher on tests.
  • It has also been proven that children in more advanced classes and higher level courses have parents that are more involved in their education.
  • There is a greater chance that if parents are active in their child's academic life their children will have less behavioral problems at school and adapt better to school and their social environment.
