dc.description.abstract Parental involvement has been shown to be an important part of a student’s life. In our study and research, we found that the amount of participation that parent’s [sic] give can drastically improve a child’s social and psychomotor skills, creating a positive effect on student’s academic and social success. By connecting both the school and home, students receive the message that their parents are concerned about their education, resulting in continued motivation and self-confidence. Establishing a positive relationship between parent and teacher is important to ensure that the best interests of the students are being met. On the other hand, educators do realize that there are obstacles that prevent parents from being more involved in their children’s education, such as time and lack of education. However, there are ways to get around these issues and strategies that may be used more today than in the past. These strategies that we acquired were obtained by research and by personal experience. en
