I believe a major educational factor that really influences children is their home life, and environment that surrounds them. It's proven that even reading to your child can affect them. A parent who is involved in their child's life has a better chance of their child getting good grades and bee=ing disciplined. A parent that works a lot of away from home, their child most likely misbehaves and preforms poorly in schoool. This happens more in single parent homes. Parents should set high goals for their children making them want to learn. If a child is in a home where his/her parents don't care how their child preforms in school, that child isn't going to want to care either. They will also think school isn't important, but really it's almost the most important think in their life. A parent that lets their child live in front of the television for long hours can affect a child's abilityto learn. Children need to be pushed in their life to reach success. Having a good home life environment allows children to ask their parents for help when needed, instead of blowing off the work and failing.
