When I write about parental involvement in education- their children increasingly knowledgeable and always proactive- treatment so that both parents. Parents should assume the critic and co-equal role raising your child. Working full time does not reduce the responsibility associated with his wife and be part of the team that is essentially a child’s first teachers and role models.
The change of the family
families today have evolved and changed, but not for the better. When I was growing up in ancient times, the typical family (not mine) is structured in this way; mother stayed home and assumed the primary responsibility for raising children. Dad worked all day and heard about “things” when he came home from work. There were fewer divorces, fewer individual extramarital babies and parents were unknown.
Fast forward to 2000. Less than 25% of US households were made up of a man and a married woman and one or more of their children. Ie a decrease of 45% in 1960. Divorce rates continued to hover around 50% of all marriages. And about 1/3 of all babies born out of wedlock. These statistics are alarming and represent the breakdown of the American family. The rain is predictable. Teach and guide our future citizens is more difficult than ever.
A new statistic
Statistics now support the position that when parents read to their children, play with them and activities organized family, children would be predisposed to have better grades in school and later successful marriages.
researchers from Oxford University tracked 17,000 children for 40 years from 1958. “children, who grew up with a father involved, they were more likely to stay out of trouble, avoid drugs and sex before marriage and were less likely to have mental health problems. “These results were frequent in all social classes.
according to Ann Buchannan, director of the Oxford Research Center at the University for parenting and Children, reading stories at an early age creates a link between parents and children.
Four key for parent participation areas
Eirini Flouri, researcher at the National Child Development Study, said the four key parent participation areas:
1. Read to your child
2. took his son on the outputs
3. education become a priority
4. We share the management of the child with the mother alike
Although none of this is surprising, that emphasizes the importance and necessity of a proactive parent and dedicated, along with guides mom-and nourishes her son.
This is not rocket science or brain surgery. No special skills or college degrees are needed. What is needed is dads caring, knowledgeable and proactive who understand and accept their family obligations and act on them. Is there anything more important for a parent to guide and nurture their children to be exemplary, caring, kind and respectful citizens the admirable character who love learning, your family and your country?
is not easy
This is an ongoing process, especially during the child’s formative years and beyond adolescence. Parenting is not easy and every parent knows. The requirements are: an abundance of love, common sense, patience, some basic knowledge and commitment to a plan that teaches, nurtures and guides
raising a child is not women’s work ;. It is a work of mom and dad. schools or society for what it has done or failed to do Do not blame yourself.
The role of first teacher and role model belongs to the father and the mother. Love, direct and shape their expectations.
