Parental participation in Education

“Its 8p.m. in evening and Yash’s father is back from his office. Yash is terrified because this evening again as is in the routine, his father will make him sit in front of him and interview him on english, its usage, its translations and ask him to speak on some topic impromptu. Yash is petrified and tends to make mistakes in fear. But his english and understanding of it has increased, much better than the other students in his class. But percentages still scare him, the questions that his dad asks him confuse him, and he is scared. But he will sit earnestly, be sincere in his answers and learn it- what his dad teaches him.”

Back when Yash was young he never realized what his dad was doing for him. But after 10 years, today he does. His dad used to come from office, tired after working for 12 hours, but regularly sat with Yash to teach him English and Maths. His base of a strong academic interest and comprehension was formed during those moments. Had his dad not been that sincere for him, he would not have been such a good english speaking person today. He owes his English knowledge to his father and love for maths to him. He is grateful to his father and gratitude is not just a word to him.  And yes, how can he forget his mother, to whom he owes his beautiful (obviously less beautiful than his mother’s) hindi handwriting. He feels blessed today, after becoming 22, he can feel it, he is grateful to them

The story of  Yash, clearly explains the importance and significance of parents participation in formative years of a child’s education. If a child gets a right direction and strong foundation in his growing years, a sincere concern in a balanced way that makes him question, become curious and actually enjoy studying rather than making it an Ts-parent-teacheraffair of just doing homework he goes on to become a very good student. He grasps things relatively easily. Thus, real education of a child blooms when he is in his younger classes. Parents must ensure that , that time is not left dilly-dallying and actually put to constructive use. It strengthens him and creates a rock-solid foundation. Thus, its imperative for every parent to look after their students education in early years for their better future.
