Parent Involvement in Grade School Boosts Child’s Social Skills is an article summarizing the not-surprising result of a new study:
The research team found that parents who increased school visitations and encouraged educational progress at home saw their child’s social skills improve. Among other things, students showed more self-control and cooperative behavior.
At the same time, the more parental involvement the less children tended to engage in aggressive and/or disruptive behaviors. In addition, children were less likely to be either depressed or anxious.
