Parental investment in child education

Posted: Updated:
(KPTV) -

Child education is very important to any parent, but some think that in this day and age, parents are invested in their kid’s education.

Sue Ahbackearly has been a elementary school teacher for 25 years. She said that although the children’s needs and desires have not changed much in all her years of teaching, parents are different than they used to be.

“They’re engaged in technology more than ever before and it sometimes takes away from the child,” said Ahbackearly.

She advises parents make an effort to spend quality time with their children and to pay more attention to their education. Reading a book or helping with homework can make a difference to a child.

“Just that one on one, put the phone down, look the child in the face and spend time with them, having conversations about what they learned in school,” Ahbackearly said.
