Effects of Parent Attitude on Secondary School Students Academic Performance in Pakistan


Objective: Parents played fundamental role for uplifting moral values, shaping personality as well as their academic attainment. Study was conducted to find out effects of parental attitude on students’ academic performance. Methodology: Population of the study comprised on all public and private sector teachers teaching secondary classes and parents of students studying in Sahiwal division educational institutions at secondary level. Sample of the study consisted of 180 respondents (90 teachers and 90 parents) taken from 30 schools selected on random basis. Two types of research instruments (questionnaires and structured interview schedules) were developed and administered for getting required information. Findings: Parents’ positive attitude has positive impacts for uplifting academic performance of the children but their passive attitude becomes the cause of downgrading their academic performance. Their positive attitude provides love, security, simulation, encouragement and opportunities that help children to do well for producing good results. The study concluded that children who perceived their parents as loving, accepting, encouraging and less controlling behavioral and psychological less hostile perform better in school and feel more competent. Improvements: Parents are urging to get more involved in the monitoring, supervision and should provide moral and material support to pave the path for their children’s performance better in their learning.
