Parents can play a large role in shaping their children's education

When a parents are teachers by profession, it seems like their children would be more successful at school. After all, their child basically receives twice the amount of education, once in the classroom and once at home. Yet, I think the answer is much more complicated, because in reality children’s needs are multifaceted and need more than just education for their development. In this sense, just because their parents are professional teachers does not mean they’ll be inherently more educated.
That being said, parents can have a huge influence on their children’s educational path and decisions. Most schools encourage parental involvement in the form of organizations, or through providing input, organizing events and fundraising. Additionally, they can influence the choices a student will make in their educational career. A recent study shows that parents who attended college are much more likely to encourage their children to do the same. While it’s unlikely that children are more successful when their parents are teachers, it’s true that parents play an essential role in a child’s educational trajectory.
