Informed Parents: Successful Children
Informed parents are critical to make their children successful in their societies and beyond. They need information and resources where they can gain information regarding early childhood education and implement that learning with their children.
Parents from rural communities need more attention to get information because they do not have access to information and resources.
Our experience with mothers remained quite interesting when mothers attended the parents’ sessions at the centers regularly and applied their learning at home with their children. They also brought their children to the center to give them an access to play with toys, listen to stories, sing nursery rhymes, make friends and play together. Mother issued story books to read them for their children at home.
It was a moving experience, when they noticed the changes in their children’s active learning and positive behavior. One mother sharing her experience with her child said, “My son always pushes me to bring him to the center” She further explained, One day, when she was busy with some guests at home and could not manage to bring him to the center, her son cried, did not eat and slept. So she felt bad that she could not take him to the center.
It indicates, the more parents get information and access to resources, child care becomes more productive and children become more successful.
