Does the Child Follow their Parents Educational Trajectory?

A kid’s education starts at home. Parents are their first teachers and they have a key role in shaping up their character. A balance of education at home and school moulds a student’s actual learning. Be a helping hand in their educational journey and travel with them with true inspiration. Parental encouragement had played a crucial role in successful students. Their role is not limited to home but involvement in school activities too.

It is also found that parents can influence the choice of your educational field. For example, if any one of your parents majored in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Maths (STEM), there is a chance that the child will also follow their path and graduate in STEM.  But how does it really happen? According to a study led in the Portland State University, it is found that parents pass it on to their children through a variety of ways: engaging in activities or conversations on scientific topics; fostering a home environment that values STEM and thereby ingraining the values, attitudes and academic work habits needed to succeed in STEM fields; and encouraging their kids to participate in math- and science-focused extracurricular activities. This leads to higher interest in such subjects, academic excellence, and good test scores which ultimately leads to a majoring degree in STEM.
