from: 86 – Single Parent Involvement in Child Education
A parent’s involvement in their children’s school and academic life plays a big role in their child’s success, not only in school, but later in life. The more a parent becomes involved in their child’s education, the more likely the child is to have higher than average grades, a positive attitude surrounding school, homework and school related events, and pursue higher education.
For some parents, however, involvement in their child’s education may seem unrealistic. This is true especially for working and single parents. These parents may find single parent involvement in child education a challenge, and may not be able to contribute to their child’s learning or to their child’s school because of commitments to work, time constraints, and financial struggles.
However, it is absolutely important for parents to find the time to participate in their child’s education. Single parent involvement in child education may seem unattainable, but there are things single or working parents can do to further their child’s education and ability to learn.
Single parent involvement in child education may be as simple as learning what your child is being taught in school and questioning them about their day. While single parents may not be able to devote time to help in the classroom, they may want to try alternative ways to become involved in their child’s education. Quiz your child as you make dinner, have a mock “at home spelling bee” on the weekends or pop an educational CD into the car stereo when you are driving with your child.
Single parents can set aside time during the evenings to read to or with their children. Single parents should also implement a schedule and set specific times for homework and tutoring to take place. Clear a space for your child to study to help reinforce the importance of concentration while engaging in school work.
If it is a viable option, single parent involvement in child education should transgress into the classroom. Single parents can attend parent-teacher conferences, and other school events, or join the Parent Teacher Association.
Enrolling a child in a team sport, music lessons or art classes can also boost a child’s education and capacity for learning. Though this may be a big commitment on the parent’s part, it is worth it, as children will learn valuable social skills and benefit from a more rounded education, and the active form of learning associated with the arts, music and sports.
Ultimately, it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure their child receives the quality education they deserve. Single parent involvement in child education may seem unmanageable, but is important to the development and continuing success of your child.
