Dear Parents, a Small Help from You can be a Huge Relief to Teachers

Parent Interventions

Though it is a well known fact that the parental influence is very high in nurturing the character formation of a child, today's' working parents might not be able to cater to it. Studies reveal that if the parent can set up a healthy routine for their child, it can be of immense help for the teachers.

Setting up a healthy routine is very important in the character formation f a child. Often the teachers might not be able to take care of all the students in the class room alike. In this scenario, the parental intervention can be of immense help, says study.

Parents can indulge in activities such as reading to small children, setting routines and boundaries, ensuring teenagers get enough sleep, eating dinner together, and showing you take schoolwork seriously etc.

Teachers can’t be expected both to teach and simultaneously compensate for anything missing at home. Moreover, the growing tendency of the parents who can’t believe their little darling’s D-grade might be his/ her own fault for not revising, and blaming the teachers instead puts the teachers in a moral dilemma.
