The importance of parental involvement, as an accelerating and motivating factor in their children’s education is an accepted fact.

It can fall into three types:
1) behavioral,
2) intellectual and
3) personal.

The effect of multi-dimensional participation of parents and the resulting progress of children in their studies is well-established fact. Active participation of the parents help their children in their academic development, by going to schools and participating in open houses. By closely observing the behavior of their children they can rightly judge the kind of behavior or the allocation of resources required by their children.
