 Parent-School Relationships Key to Kids Development

A majority of parents aspire to provide their children with an environment that encourages learning, found kids digital learning platform.

A subscription-based platform for children's curated content, AppyStore.in, has released some insightful findings, based on an extensive survey that examined the relationship between parents' participation in their child's development and the role of the school. However, most parents are unsatisfied with the steps they take to boost their child's progress, and feel dependent on the school to know what activities and exercises are appropriate for development.

Only 14.98 percent of the parents, who were a part of the survey claimed that they have been making conscious investments in planning their child's developmental activities from a very early age. The section of respondents who claimed to take initiative and support their child's learning journey was marginally bigger, at 22.3 percent. A staggering 52.96 percent parents admitted to letting the school their child attends decide the right pace of development for him or her.

At the same time, a positive change in the attitude towards learning priorities was discovered, with only 6.62 percent of parents expressing the conservative sentiment that the school should focus more on academics than extracurricular activities. These figures make it apparent that many parents are passive participants in their child's intellectual development and look to schools to guide their children in the right direction.

This also underlines the need for a curated plan to help parents in taking a more active role towards the holistic education of their wards. Home and school are two of the most important institutions in an individual's life, and greatly influence a child's mental growth. Both centres of knowledge are equally instrumental in a child's growth, and thus need to work in tandem. Manoj Barot, Director Marketing, Mauj Mobile (parent company of AppyStore.in), said, "AppyStore.in is committed to the development of young children, and demographic studies are very important to understand the way parents and kids approach learning."

Our recent findings are crucial to our mission of involving parents in the process of providing children with balanced education. We have observed that parents are enthusiastic about helping their children learn and excel, and trust the opinion of school teachers and administration. While this represents a positive relationship between home and school, parents need to participate more actively and put in just as much effort as the school does.

Using digital tools will help both parents and teachers to make development simple and fun for young minds. AppyStore.in ensures standard delivery of content to kids in the form of videos, games, apps and worksheets, which are rated and reviewed by AppyStore.in's child development experts and are in sync with school curricula in India and across the globe.
