Importance of parents teaching children at home

Home is the first place for learning. Academic processes do succeed at home. Studies show that the bond between a parent and a child results in very good marks and academic success in school. Research also proves that a strong relationship between parental involvment and children’s educational results, from school readiness to college completion.

An amount and quality of parental interaction in infancy contributes to children’s ultimate school achievement. The facts suggest that early-childhood results vary by family structure and income. Some specific research analyzed a numbers of different mothers in various relationship and income situations. including unstable, fluid arrangements, 1 parent families and 2 parent, married families. In situations where mothers having extra-marital relationships from the child’s birth to age three, researchers found that three-year-olds born to cohabiting mothers are more apt to show signs of aggressiveness, introversion, restless or depressive behavior than children born to married mothers. For aggressive and introverted behaviors, the association was explained by earnings difference. For anxiety and depressive symptoms, even controlling for income, the extra-marital effect remained.

Research demonstrates that reading to young children enriches their literacy progress. Toddlers and preschool-age children in married-parent families are read to more often than peers in non-intact families. A study of a number of kindergartners staying with two parents found that, accounting for parental education and income, children living with married parents scored higher reading achievement test marks when compared to those living with single parents or parents having an extra-marital relationship.
