Your opinion supports Vygotsky’s term scaffolding which is when a parent or teacher introduces a new concept by example or breaking it down into smaller steps. This is also referred to as “assisted discovery” by Tharp and Gilmore (1988). Parents who are interested in science and share their passion with their children will help them make great connections in the classroom.

I absolutely believe that in order for a student to be successful in any class his or her parents must be involved in some way. Students will always need encouragement, support, and praise from their teachers, but especially their parents. We all aim to please and receive praise. Showing students that their parents are involved in their school life makes students feel as if what they are doing is actually worth while. Therefore, it gives them the motivation they need to succeed.

I believe that you are correct about parents's involvement will help children understand more about science. However, I think that not many parents have time to do that. It would be nice if they can. Kids benefit much from parents' involvement.
