Throughout the ages parents have had an impact on their childs education and learning ability. It is strange for a child to succeed and accomplish a goal that requires 12- 16 years of school without there parents or guardians standing next to them to support them with there studies. But will they put a negative or a positive impact on the way they educate their child. A parent can have a positive contribution to their childrens success if the child understands what the parent is trying address.
A most successful way for a child to learn is for the parents to establish an environment which a child feels more comfortable studying in. A parent should be more involved in their childs education and should be more aware on how he/she are doing in school, that will give them an idea on how the child is performing in their studies therefore a parent can help them in their weaknesses. Parents should well inform their kids how important a school education really is therefore their children are better prepared than other students in their school. On the other hand a childs dream can go down the drain when a parent does not put much importance in their education. It is also hard for a child to learn and to concentrate when a parent is putting to much pressure on them. With parents demand so high sometimes, children can feel a big effect on the pushing and pulling of their parents for schooling and it will affect their performance in school. Sometimes kids need to spend more time with their parents than with others, In my case, I didnt need as much attention as other people would of appreciated.
In the Amy Tan essay a young Chinese American girl grew up living with a non-fluent mother and beat all odds and became a journalist. It doesnt necessarily mean that if you live in a household which English isnt the primary language that you wont succeed and it doesnt mean that you will succeed either, its all up to the child if he/she is willing to try. Examples vary in different ethnicitys. In my family, I had support in both sides of my family my mother and father they both have been a big reason of my success today. A parent can teach a child to a certain point but its up to the child if he/she wants to comprehend. In different cases sometimes the odds can go better of because then it makes you try harder and to strive for your goal.
