Notes several research studies showing parental involvement to be positively related to high school students' academic achievement. Describes the author's finding that parental involvement was positively related to students' mastery orientation--when parents showed an interest in their child's education by being actively involved, students were more likely to seek challenging tasks, persist, and experience satisfaction in their schoolwork.
