Education » The Role of Parents in Complementing the Efforts of Teachers in 21st Century by: Ninoevans(m) .:. Sun, 12 Jul, 2020 - 05:39:37:am GMT

The Education of a child is very crucial to his or her mental development and in developing the child towards becoming a responsible citizen that can contribute positively to his community and country as a whole. Be that as it may, it is important to note that the education of the child is not the sole responsibility of teachers. Parents and the government has a big role to play in this important aspect of a child's development.

While teachers guide and help students understand important concepts based on the academic curriculum, it is also important for parents to complement their efforts by ensuring that they share quality time with their children to evaluate how well they are doing with their studies. Also, parents should give further explanations on concepts based on real life situations to help their children understand better. One area where many parents fail their children academically in Nigeria, is in the area of exposure. Holidays are not just meant for children to engage in house chores, it is an opportunity to expose your children to interesting things about their environment. Take them out on an excursion to a museum, historic site or any site of tourist attraction. This single act has shown to be instrumental not just in helping them learn about their country but also boost their ability to write interesting, captivating and compelling essays in their English Language. Most times, students are required to write about how they spent their holidays upon resumption for a new term. Those that were just engaged in house chores and running of errands hardly have anything interesting and captivating to write about, so they improvise by writing lies which most times do not give them good scores unlike those they were exposed by their parents.

It is also an ugly site whenever i see parents talk down on teachers with such disdain and disregard in the presence of their ward. They tag teachers as "common teachers" and "poor people" that are surviving on the school fees that they pay. This often discourage the teachers from putting in their best effort to help such children. The children on the other hand develop the boldness to insult and disregard the teacher at every given opportunity. School owners must learn to put in a system that will checkmate the excesses of parents and protecting their teachers from rude and abusive parents. They should also balance it by ensuring that there is a good way of assessing the impact of teacher's on their students and avoid the abuse of the children by teachers.

On the whole, parents should know that they have a responsibility to help their children at home academically. Education is beyond paying of school fees, they must complement the efforts of the teachers for better result.

it is important for parents to ensure that their wards are mentally and physically fit because bad health affects students focus and assimilation to what they are taught in class. This starts with good hygiene by making sure that the children bath well and dress up nicely in clean and comfortable clothes and socks.

Also, good food with the necessary diet combination for gooth health and growth. It is important to reduce their sugar intake and make sure they take herbal coccoctions that can help with reducing sugar level. It is no news that children like sweet things and their pocket money is spent on junks. We need to have some pep talks with them to boost their understanding on the consequences of eating junks and too many sweet things.

Parents should also help their ward to set out time for exercise. Exercise, helps boost their immune system and keep them fit for the day's job. Daily exercise, reduces their visit to the hospitals. Prevention they say is better than cure.

These are other areas parents can assist their children to prepare them for the days activity.

Parents should play a role in complementing the efforts of the teach in the 21st century. As we all may know the first agent of socialization, they play a vital role in ensuring the children enact the right type of attitude and personality. The problem of parents nowadays is that they always claim to be so busy at work that they have the time to spare and spend with their children. They rather leave the children in the hands of nannies and helpers which isn't supposed to be. The same way a teacher us trying to enact knowledge into the children and also ensure that they live a dignified life should be the same way parents should complement the effort of the teachers. After school parents should ask their children about their day at school and check all their notes and help them with their assignments. Parents should assist the teachers to enact good principles.

The role of parents in complementing the efforts of of teachers in t he 21st century.

Who is a teacher?

A person who teaches, especially one employed in a school.

Children leaves their home to school from Monday to Friday every week. The children spend most time with their teachers in school. The children usually spend up to eight hours in school with their teacher.

The teacher will be the one to see to the needs of her pupils from morning till afternoon, teachers needs to be complemented.

Though teachers are being paid by their employees but it doesn't worth what they have put into it. Teachers are labourers over the pupils or students . They labour in prayer, in fasting, with energy, with time and life.

No one came into this world loaded with ideas, everyone of us on earth here are product of one teacher or the other.

There is no pastor without a teacher, no lawyer without a teacher, no president without a teacher, no doctor without a teacher, no footballer without a teacher, no governor without a teacher, everyone has passed through a teacher one time or t he other.

The role of parents complementing teachers is very necessary but not compulsory. When you appreciate a person for a job well done, the person will be eager to do more.

I taught in a particular school, there is this parent that usually appreciate me with gifts, I loved her child more and want the best for the child not that I am bias but the mother has placed the child right in my heart. II knew she wanted me to do more and also saying thank you for caring for her child. Appreciating teacher is very good hood because it is a means of encouragement to them.

Teachers needs the parent motivation and not just complain.

**God's will be done**
