#### Parent Involvement

...Abstract There has been significant research on how parental involvement affects students, explanations for why parents do not get involved, and what role both schools and teachers play in creating an atmosphere conducive to parents becoming actively involved in the educational process. Parental involvement refers to a parent or family members' participation and contribution to their child's schooling. These contributions can take place in or outside of the school, with the objective of improving a child’s learning. Parental involvement at home can include activities such as helping with homework or reading with the child. Involvement at school may include parents volunteering in the classroom or attending workshops. Parental involvement is vital to school reform. Although current educational policies and practices show a widespread support for parental involvement, how parents can become involved and the extent to which they should be involved has not always been made clear. However, one fact has remained certain; research on the effects of parental involvement has shown a consistent, positive relationship between parents' engagement in their child's education and student outcomes. Parental Involvement in Education Effects of Parental Involvement There are literally hundreds of books and journal articles available on the subject of parental involvement and the impact it has on a child’s education. I chose the issue of the effects of parent...

#### Parent Participation

... their friends and their teacher. Most children enjoy having their parent to be with them it makes them feel safe, in other word the child befits because they get that sense of security. A disadvantage of the parent’s presents on the trip may develop if the parent becomes detraction for the child and the child doesn't learn all that is possible on the trip. Parents may also want to work directly in a classroom. They can help the teacher with planning activities for the day or they can read to the children. Children love to be read to by different people. Seeing a different face once in a while, it brings them joy and excitement. The parent gets the opportunity to witness what a regular day in school is like for the children. The parents also get the chance to see the environment that their child is in everyday; they can see what the teacher has done as far as making it a comfortable learning environment. By being in a classroom the parent can learn about the teachers teaching style or methods. The teacher can show the parent were their child is struggling and what they can focus on at home. The parent’s involvement makes the parent more approachable for the teacher; the teacher may feel more comfortable asking the parent questions about the student. Having a parent in a class may make the teacher and the children feel nervous and therefore they may start acting unnaturally in order to impress the parent. Some schools have an activity called......

#### Having Teen

...Having teenagers myself I know the worries parents go through when their teens reach the driving age. In California the legal driving age is 16 years old at age 16 teenagers are not fully developed and not able to make the right decisions and safe choices while driving. Teens driving at an early age is a convenience for parents and teens alike; however, the dangers distracted, irresponsible, and reckless driving, and the poor decisions teens make are enough reason to raise the legal driving age to at least 18. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 16% of car crashes are due to distracted driving. Car accidents are the number one killer of teens in the United States. The way teenagers rely on their mobile devices today increases the risk of accidents due to distracted driving hugely. Whether they are checking a text or taking a call any time that teens have their eyes off the road it is a potentially life threatening situation. Teenagers around the age of 16 do not fully understand the danger they are creating by driving distracted they see it as just catching up with their friends or updating Facebook. Raising the driving age to at least 18 will decrease the number of accidents caused each year by distracted driving. Allowing more time for a teen to develop the skills necessary to decide to leave the phone alone will be beneficial to society, making the roads a safer place for everyone. Raising the driving age the idea is gaining momentum in...

#### Parent Responsibility

... for activity. Today, many children choose the available digital and electronic media as their “only” activity with zero parent intervention. In earlier decades, children were not as overweight as they are today. Much of that can be attributed to the economic times; a high percentage of mothers that were “stay at home moms,” the children were guided and supervised in activities, and had healthy home cooked meals. Weintraub writes “It’s time to get parents to take some responsibility to protect their children from unhealthy foods and lack of exercise” (Weintraub). If children were given no other choice but a home cooked meal, and parents being more involved placing children in sports or engaging in family outings that consisted of some sort of exercise, then our youth would not be facing such unhealthy futures. Shannon Brownlee in “It’s Portion Distortion That Makes America Fat,” writes: “Readers of a certain age can remember a time when a trip to McDonalds seemed like a treat and when a small bag of french-fries, a plain burger and a 12-ounce Coke seemed like a full meal. Fast food wasn’t any healthier back then, we simply ate a lot less of it” (Brownlee). Now American’s are consuming super-size french fries, and drinking Coke in astonishing amounts. Generations before would not have considered consuming Coke in the amounts society does today or eating extra-large french fries. Most people believe more food is considered better than having less. Therefore people are......

#### Ofw Parent

...Chapter I INTRODUCTION Family are harmoniously live together under one roof with the parents providing all the love, attention and the assurance of better future for their children. But however this may not be true for all families. Parents provide the basic needs of their children. They decide to be an OFW to give their children a better life. Children with OFW Parents experience more monetary benefits in terms of foods, clothing, education and savings. Despite of those satisfaction their children experience emotional adjustment and change their academic performance in school in terms of attendance, socialization and activeness in class. Having an OFW parents the children have a big adjustment. According to CFO (2006), there are 8.23 million Filipinos abroad, many of them have left their children may be wanting for affection and time. Worse, they may be prone to emotional and psychological distress. In addition Edillon (2008) mentioned that one of the activities that could enhanced the relationship between the OFW parents and their children is by writing letters. She added that the school may help by including this in the children's activities. Edillon (2008) said that the school is also a place where values and skills learned at home by the OFW children should be strengthened and improved. With the absence of the parents/guardians will also be the school's ally in imparting good values to the children. The researcher experience that a child left by the parents...

#### The Parent-Plus Loan Current Criteria Potentially Creates Disadvantage for Black Student Applicants

...-Americans? Like most families, parents have a period in their life where their finances seem like they will over power them. Some blacks, if fortunate enough learn about credit at an early age by having their first credit card joint with their mother/father’s account. She is taught about credit scores and paying bills in time. But most African Americans are not educated on credit cards and when it comes time for them start building their credit, they immediately max out their credit cards, which essentially ruins their credit and takes them years to rebuild. Since PLUS loans are credit based, it puts more African American students at a greater risk of not being able to finish college because they can not afford to. In efforts to help the black community, organizations, such as Greek sororities and fraternities, which pride themselves on community service, should begin hosting events for high- school -aged kids educating them on the benefits of having good credit and provide relatable examples to teens....

..., and if John, Sr. does not adhere to the salary adjustments, I feel that he should seek employment to another company who will let him do his job that he was hired to do, if not turn in his resignation to John, Sr., who seem to think that what he was doing for the company was unacceptable because of high unemployment. Consolidated Chicken Products 5 How has the company’s strategy affected its human resource policies? The company’s strategy affected the human resource policies greatly. When Sam came to Consolidated Chicken Products he had high hopes in his new position as the personnel director. Sam wanted to design a great compensation package for the employees at the company, but it is owned by the family of John, Sr., although the job was producing in sales, the employees weren’t interested in developing any tests (WorldatWork, 2007) because at Consolidated Chicken Products, friends and relatives were employed there from the community. How should cultural norms affect compensation systems? In this case cultural norms should not affect the compensation system but it did. Since all the employees were from the community John, Sr., figured he didn’t have to do any upgrading or salary adjustments because he figured the people were satisfied by even having a job.

... work being in between. So on my days off which I only get one unfortunately but besides the point that one day that I have free I use to do all school work and let everyone know that I am not available on the one day I do get off. How I would go by with having kids and having to go to band concerts and other activities I would definitely have a family member or my husband try to pitch in and help with the kids so that way I have a little more "me" time to finish all of my other important priorities. If my husband and myself can come up with a flexible schedule to where it'll both help myself and my husband to where the kids will also still be able to attend there daily activities. Now when it comes to having elderly parents that no longer drive would be a little difficult, but I would definitely try to have one of my sisters help out when it comes to my parents because I feel the weight and everything I have on my plate is entirely too much and it should be okay for the little family that I do have living around me such as my sister to definitely help out when it comes to taking care of my parents along with my kids, working two full time jobs and pursuing school all at the same time. My doctor is telling my blood pressure is too high and what not but I would definitely ask my sister that lives a mile or so away for help with the kids, and parents for sure. So overall here's my conclusion for the whole situation: I would still continue to work both of my jobs to support my...

..., discord and despair - for the person, that is, who is not free to examine the Parent. Much Parent data appears in current living in the “how-to” category; how to hit a nail, how to make a bed, how to eat soup, how to blow your nose, how to thank the hostess, how to shake hands, how to pretend no one’s at home, how to fold the bath towels, or how to dress the Christmas tree. The how to comprises a vast body of data acquired by watching the parents. It is largely useful data which makes it possible for the little person to learn to get along by himself. Later (as his Adult becomes more skilful and free to examine Parent data) these early ways of doing things may be updated and replaced by better ways that are more suited to a changed reality. A person whose early instructions were accompanied by stern intensity may find it more difficult to examine the old ways and may hand onto them long after they are useful, having developed a compulsion to do it “this way and no other.” The mother of a teenager related the following parental edict, which had long governed her housekeeping procedures. Her mother had told her, “You never put a hat on a table or a coat on a bed”. So she went through life never putting a hat on a table or a coat on a bed. Should she occasionally forget, or should one of her youngsters break this old rule, there was an over-reaction that seemed inappropriate to the mere violation of the rules of simple neatness. Finally, after several decades of...

#### Lone Parent

... do everything. In a traditional nuclear family, the woman usually upholds the ‘expressive role’ which involves creating home comfort and giving the other family members emotional support however in a lone parent family, the mother has to also take the farther role on, this is usually mirrored by the child and shows women are capable in fulfilling a man’s role. The new right also believe that lone parent families are too reliant on the welfare system and the system encourages young females to have children out of wedlock as the state can pay for them. They say this forms a lazy generation as no one is willing to work, and it also sees a rise in lone parent families as they are not reluctant to have kids due to the fact they know they can be funded for them. However, this claim is extremely exaggerated, most lone parents actually do work also the parents that do collect benefits usually work part time and need benefits not because they are too lazy to work but because their wages do not cover living costs and childcare as everything has become much more expensive. Overall, I believe being in a nuclear family Is ideal however a lone parent family is not a negative. As the world is forever changing and the word ‘family’ is becoming much more abstract we must go with the times and not see lone parent families as a negative, just a different variation to the conventional family....

#### The Effect of Parent Socio Economic Status on Student Academic Performance.

... and influences a child’s interest in school and aspirations for the future. The socio-economic status (SES) of a child is most commonly determined by combining parents’ educational level, occupational status, and income level (Jeynes 2002). Studies have repeatedly found that SES affects student outcomes (Baharudin and Luster 1998, Jeynes 2002, Eamon 2005, Majoribanks 1996, Hochschild 2003, McNeal 2001, Seyfried 1998). Students 7 who have a low SES earn lower test scores and are more likely to drop out of school (Eamon 2005, Hochschild 2003). Low SES students have been found to score about ten percent lower on the National Assessment of Educational Programs than higher SES students (Seyfried 1998). SES has also been shown to override other educational influences such as parental involvement (McNeal 2001). It is believed that low SES negatively affects academic achievement because low SES prevents access to vital resources and creates additional stress at home (Eamon 2005, Majoribanks 1996, Jeynes 2002). The economic hardships that are caused by low SES lead to disruptions in parenting, an increasing amount of family conflicts, and an increased likelihood of depression in parents and single-parent households (Eamon 2005). For these reasons SES is closely tied to home environment and one could argue that SES dictates the quality of home life for children. Previous research has shown that children from single-parent households do not perform as well in...

#### Single Parent

... mention of a man in the same situation. I cannot tell you how many times over the course of my single life that when I met someone for the first time and the conversation turned to kids, they were astounded to learn that I was a single dad with full custody of my children. It was like they had never met a man like me before. Studies conducted as far back as 1985 show that the myths of single father-hood can and are continuing to be dispelled as the number of single fathers grow.( Custodial Fathers: Myths, Realities , and Child Support Policy) Daniel Meyer and Steven Garasky, 1991. Because of studies like this and newer more recent articles (The Myth of the Single Fa-ther) Joy Monroe, June, 19, 2010, over the last ten years, court systems across the country are changing the way that custody and support hearings are being conducted. Social stigmas are changing and determinations by judges are being looked at ways that remove gender from the process used in determining custody. I like to think that I did a pretty fair job of raising my boys and still doing my job in the military. I never had the luxury of having my parents or other rela-tives care for my children. I was lucky enough to have a job that realized the importance of fami-ly and allowed me to do these things. Whenever I feel like I could have done better, my new wife reminds me that I could have played into that stereotype that I spoke of earlier and just left them with their mother to enjoy a life of......
