It would help to give the parent a better perspective on what the child is currently engaged in learning, it would also keep the parent informed as to the capability of the child in being able to cope with the school’s programs and will also give the parent the opportunity to make adjustment should the child need other assisting tools and even time to be able to cope as ideally expected.
For a parent to be involved in the progress of the child, the parent must be able to stay focused and also willing to commit a certain amount of time to the exercise of getting physically and mentally involved in what is going on at school.
Being in the know will certainly help the parent avoid any nasty surprises that would otherwise cause the child to lose interest in studying.
It would also help to parent identify any areas of weakness where the child might need the assistance and participation of the parent to help them get back on track and on par with other students of the same age.
However being privy to this information does not mean the parent would have the right to push the child when he or she is obviously experiencing problems at school, it is however supposed to ideally provide the parent with a clear understanding of the child’s capabilities and how this can be nurtured to the best possible level.
When the parent is willing to commit both time and energy to stay informed of all the child progress within the school system, it will also give the child a sense of worth and this bond is rather invaluable indeed. The interest shown on the part of the parent will definitely be very heartwarming for the child.
