Everything starts at home. A child learns from their family, from their first step to the time when they learn to be independent.
It is a parents' responsibility to be the first teacher of their child and to produce a better citizen.
Children are greatly influenced by their family. Parental involvement builds strong foundation in shaping the child’s attitude towards education. It reflects on their attainment and adjustment. If their parents or any member of the family support these children in any way possible, like helping them do their homework, providing them financially, and attending their school activities will more or less encourage these children to study harder and be a good citizen. Likewise they are the children, who usually excel in school since they seldom miss classes, and they are those who usually exhibit positive attitude.
Whereas if children grow without parental or any support from the family due to family’s separation, according to Divorce and separation: the outcomes for children, by Bryan Rodgers and Jan Pryor, children who are product of separated families have high likelihood of living in poverty, have psychological problems, perform less well in school, not continuing school, and becomes a parent at early age. Since there is no one to guide them during their formative years, they learn to depend on themselves and sometimes to people who have ulterior motive in being a part of their life thus, most of the time messing their chance in having a bright future through education.
