Educational outcomes for children have recently decreased nationwide, in part because of a decline in teachers' efforts to sufficiently educate students. Additionally, research indicates a decline in parents' contributions to their children's learning. As a result, more students are failing to graduate from high school, and suggestions implemented to improve the situation do not appear to be effective. Parents are allotting less time to help their children with schoolwork, which contributes in hindering the creation of a positive learning atmosphere at home. In addition, parents are becoming less involved in school activities, which may prompt social and intellectual distress in children. Parents should provide a positive home environment, create and maintain boundaries for their children, and strive to participate in their children's academics to improve their children's learning experience. This review will evaluate the current state of education and ascertain ways parents can assist in advancing their children's learning.
