Abstract

The parents engagement is supposed to be very crucial for educational success of their children. It was observed that children of educated and committed parents exhibited better results rather than the children of uneducated parents. A study was planned to validate the role of parents for educational success of the children and dimensions of the role, which was being played, by the parents. Two groups of students were selected through purposive sampling. One group consisted of best performers while the other of bottom performers. These groups were kept under study for one year. It was recorded that how many times the parents of these students contacted/visited school for feedback of their children. What was their response when school called them in PTA meeting? What type of queries they had with teachers and administration? What was their response in case any help was being demanded by school regarding their children studies?  It was also analyzed that what type of help was being provided at home to their kids by both type of parents. The results showed that parents of best performing students were not only educated but also deeply involved in studies of their kids. They were providing help in managing timetable at home, adjusting with school environment, motivating the students as well as supervising their friends and other activities as well. On the other hand, the parents of non-performing students were mostly uneducated, busy in their jobs having no time for their children, were single parents and demotivated about the studies of their kids.
