“At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents.” — Jane D Hull, American Politician and Educator
Like every other aspect of the child’s life, parental involvement plays an important role in the child’s academic success. Parental involvement is the parents’ participation in the educational processes and experiences of their children. Some parents are deeply involved in their child’s education, whereas some regrettably find it difficult to be actively involved. One of the key barriers to parental involvement is work commitments and busy schedules.
Disney.BYJU’S Early Learn (DBEL) app understands the constraints faced by parents and has included various features such as study plans and progress reports that make it easy for parents to be involved in their child’s education. DBEL team shares study plans and a monthly progress report through email. The monthly progress report can also be requested on WhatsApp. The progress report helps parents know their child’s proficiency and even get topic recommendations based on the child’s app usage. The access to monthly progress reports help parents stay updated about their child’s learning and also serves to inculcate positive learning habits in the child.
Another important feature is the live dashboard that informs parents about their child’s progress by showing the number of core concepts explored, number of worksheets solved, badges earned, and more. For each core concept on the app, fun activities are suggested that help the child learn the topic better. The child needs a grown-up to do these activities with, and they are perfect for parent-child bonding.
A paper titled, Parental Involvement in Child’s Education: Importance, Barriers and Benefits, mentions a few key benefits of parental involvement for children.
Being involved in their child’s education benefits parents as well. Here are some key benefits listed in the aforementioned paper:
Overall, parental involvement benefits children and parents alike. When you are involved in your child’s education, you can create an environment that supports and encourages learning.
Disney.BYJU’S Early Learn app aims to make it easy for you to become more involved in your child’s learning through its live dashboards, study plans, and monthly progress reports.
