Grolnick, Wendy S.; Slowiaczek, Maria L.
Child Development, v65 n1 p237-52 Feb 1994
Examined the relationship between parental involvement in their children's schooling and children's motivation and academic achievement. Subjects were of 300 11- to 14-year-olds. Data from parent, student, and teacher evaluations suggest that parental involvement manifests itself in many ways. Children who are confident in school may actually push parents to become actively involved in school. (MDM)
