An Interactive Model of Parents' Involvement and Their Children's Functioning in School
Ben-Tov, Shoshana; Romi, Shlomo
Education 3-13, v47 n2 p217-232 2019
This study examined relationships between Parents' involvement as related to their Identification and Alertness and to four students' variables Attitudes toward school, Social adjustment, Self-efficacy and Academic achievements. Social adjustment was the most dominant variable and served as a mediator between self-efficacy and achievements. Parental involvement had significant, direct and positive relations with social adjustment but negative with academic achievements. Findings indicate a weakening of the relationships between parents' involvement, identification, and alertness and children's variables compared to the relationships between children's variables. Educational staff and parents must create useful communication channels for helping children cope with the challenges of their social and media world.
