There have been many studies conducted on parent child relationship. Various kinds of correlations have been established to this relationship. The most important aspect that has been talked of is the emotional quotient of the child. Also, it has been seen that this relation has a direct effect on the academic performance of the child. As a layman we all understand that if the environment around us is peaceful then our performance increases. And, it is not to be mentioned that the home environment is based on our relationships.
Another surprising fact was established thru such studies. It is seen that the profession of the parents has a high correlation with the academic performance of the child. It is also seen that the overall growth and success attained by the kids is also affected by the profession of the parents.
Specially, the mother’s profession has a very important role to play. If the mother is in a technical job or managerial position, it is seen that the growth of the kid is positive provided she is able to provide ample time to the kid. Not to mention –quality time. It is also seen that if the mother is in teaching profession than the child is able to do good in life. I have many examples where a mother is a primary teacher and the kid is a highly placed doctor or engineer sitting somewhere in Canada or Australia.
This does not mean that only the kids of teachers can perform better in life. The point is, that these kids are better placed. Said or unsaid the office environment of the parents is shared with the child, which influences their development (intellectual, social and emotional). Secondly, it is the requirement of the teaching profession to understand the psychology of the child. And by virtue of their profession, teachers are able to understand the child better. There are few examples of mothers taking admission in B.Ed. just to learn how to handle their kids. They want to be better mothers and up bring their children to the best. These days parents attend workshops on parenting as well.
