Every Child tries to get high academic achievements in his educational career.  Parents always try to improve their children’s learning performance.

Academic achievement includes class grade, test score, graduation rates, and standardized test.  It can also measure by seeing the student’s annual or monthly assessment reports/result card.

2.  Development of Positive Behavior

The development of positive behavior is to describe the” intensity of particular moods, the susceptibility to emotional situations,  the strength, and speed of response (Allport, 1961)”.It is the parental responsibility to develop positive behavior in children.  The development of behavior is an essential part of academic performance in childhood. Academic behavior includes attendance, discipline, and completing homework.

 3. Skill Development

The skill is “the ability, coming from one’s knowledge, practice, aptitude, to do something well” (Skill, 2014, June 26).  The students have several essential abilities/skills such as cognitive or non-cognitive skills. Parents should focus on the development of learning skills in children. [2]
