Introduction I think sometimes parents tend to forget how important it really is to be involved with  there children not only at home but also in there school life.  Children need there parents to  be involved at home, at school, and just in everyday activities.  I think many parents now a  days tend to forget how important it really is to be involved in their children s life s.  Many  parents are to wrapped up in there jobs, making sure dinner is ready, or being on their  phones or computers that they forget to sit down with there child after school and ask how  there day was at school.  Parents tend to forget how important it really is to just sit down and read a book with there child, or just having a conversation that consists of there day activi- ties, or who they interacted with at school that day.  Many parents think that the only way  they can be involved with there child s everyday life at school is only through PTO/PTA  meetings.  It is not true that parents need to be involved in PTO/PTA meetings to be in- volved with there children.  Parents and Children Can be involved together just at home with one another.  Parent involvement can be at home reading a book, doing homework together,   SHIFRA UZILOV  2

playing a board game together, sitting down having dinner together and talking about the day they had.      What many parents sometimes do not understand is that  what happens at home, really effects what happens at school.  Be- havior at school for many children, most of the time is really ef- fected because of the involvement they get at home with there parents.  Accord- ing to The Center of Public Education  Parent involvement can make a difference in a child education.  Two-thirds of teachers surveyed (Public Agenda, 2003) believed that their stu- dents would perform better in school if their parents were more involved in their child s edu- cation, while 72% of parents say children of uninvolved parents sometimes  fall through the  cracks in schools (Johnson & Duffett, 2003).  The Center of Public Education thinks that the  conflict comes through, on how to create different kinds of involvement, and whether all par- ents involved feel the particular activities are worthwhile.  The Center of Public Education  question do all the PTA meetings, take-home flyers and back to school nights actually gener- ate increases in student achievement?  I think its not about the different PTA meetings, flyers, or back to school nights.  I think it is about how parents chose to be involved weather in there

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
