Maternal Involvement and Academic Achievement.
Lopez, Linda C.; Holmes, William M.
The potential impact of several maternal involvement behaviors on teachers' ratings of children's academic skills was examined through statistical analyses. Data, based on mothers' responses to selected questions concerning maternal involvement and on teachers' ratings on the Classroom Behavior Inventory, were obtained for 115 kindergarten children. Subjects' sex and the educational level of subjects' mothers were used as control variables. Although results did not support previous findings of a relationship between high maternal involvement and superior academic performance, one significant relationship was found: maternal help with sight words was associated with children's reading difficulty.
