What is the role of parents?

A parent should be concerned, though not overprotective about her child. Take active interest in his school activities, in his examination results, and discuss school with him. Find out how he feels about being in school and who his friends are. Most schools have parent-teacher meeting once a term and parents must make it a point to attend such meetings. Many parents are ignorant about which class or section their children are. Most parents visualise the child at school from their own experience. This may not be the best way. They should look at the school from the child's point of view, and how he relates to his surroundings and feels about the different issues.
