How parent interest in learning effects your kids
Cranbourne Park Primary School encourages parents to help teach their children.

When parents read with their children, support their work on homework assignments, or tutor them using materials and instructions provided by teachers, they can be particularly effective. Parents don't need to be well-educated themselves to make a difference.
Here are just some of the reasons why parents should actively involve themselves in their child's education:
