  11. 11. conclusion I therefore conclude that the school and home contribute a great impactin developing the cognitive, affective, psychomotor, and other domains ofhuman development, and so as to the total personality of the learners. Hence,the learning of the child begins at home. At home the child learns values, worksand his cognition slowly developed. However, school plays a vital role inmolding the child. Sine school is made for the purpose of developing physical,social, emotional, moral, psychological, spiritual, and mental or cognitiveaspects of the learner. As the child goes to stud from pre-school until college, hespends much time in school rather than at home. So, the total development of achild depends in school as well as the teachers and instructors or instructresses,which are the most important agents in school that bears and impart knowledgeand values with the learners. recommendations I do recommend that each teacher must be diligent, resourceful and patiencein handling the learners. He/she must use varied strategies in order to catch theinterest and attention of the students to focus on the lesson. He/ she must bearin mind the knowledge that the learners get rather than the salary receive. Forthe parents, they must be responsible in guiding and disciplining their children,they must be open with them. They should always ask them about their studiesand give encouragement to focus and study hard sp as to become successful intheir lives. The most important is the role of the learner, they me be alwayscompliant and dutiful. They must ensure to themselves that they are motivatedto learn and participate since they are responsible of their own learning. analysis 1. From your home visit and interview, what do you think is the style of parenting experiences by the learner? Explain your answer.11 | F S 1 - E p i s o d e 6 ( H o m e - S c h o o l L i n k )
  12. 12. The learner is experiencing an Authoritative type of parenting style. His mother knows his most liked movies, his favorite subjects, his favorite compute games, and other interests and hobbies of the child, which means that the mother is involved in the child’s interests. The use of non- physical punishment but of reasoning in disciplining them is also a characteristic of this parenting style. The imposing of study rules at home and relying on the child’s valuing of education is very helpful and to stress self-reliance and independence on the part of the learner. Warmth and nurturance is exhibited by his parents. The child’s choice for his playmates is approved by his parents. The parents are neither indulgent nor permissive. 2. Relating your data with what you leaned from child and adolescent development, what family factors do you think contribute to the development and overall adjustment of the learner in school? Parents play an important role in adolescent’s life. Learners whose parents support their academic achievement perform better than students who receive none. Children are also less influenced by peers or by negative peer influence when they have a close and involving relationships with their parents. When a learner’s parental relationship is deficient or lacking in warmth, nurturance and supervision, the more likely for him to be influenced by peers. Authoritative parenting, as practiced by the parents that I’ve interviewed, encourages students to claim more responsibility and self-reliance towards their learning. Also this type of parenting encourages learners in school to be less susceptible to peer’s bad influence. Positive family relationship guides a learner towards influences that are more approved by adults. Moreover, not only do parents expect to see change in their sons and daughters behaviors as they socialize them with other students in school. Through their interactions on a day-to-day basis--parents can model and/or shape the cognitive, emotional and behavioral attributes they desire to see in their children. 3. Doe the communication between the home-school have an effect on the learners? If yes, what are these effects? “Education begins at home”. This quote helped me in finding and understanding the behavior of the learner. What he did in school reflects how he is nurtured by his parents at home. And another is that,12 | F S 1 - E p i s o d e 6 ( H o m e - S c h o o l L i n k )
  13. 13. communication between home and school has an effect on the learner. This is so because this type of communication is for continuance and reinforcement of what is accomplished at home or in school since the student does not stay in school every hour of the day. By teachers regularly communicating to parents, they are able to identify the learning needs, the learning gaps and how they can bridge it with more permanence. Through this, both parties can monitor the student’s progress and performance and can compare notes. The more involved the parents are, the easier for the learner to cope and deal with challenges in school. Parents can adjust their parenting style to accommodate study skill needs of the child. Achievements of the child can be shared. Supportive availability of parents encourages a positive attitude towards learning that results to higher achievement or scores in test, increased completion of homework and even better attendance. Reflections 1. Reflect your own development as a child. What type of parenting did you experience? How did it affect you? When I was still a boy until this present, I observed that the style of parenting I have is authoritative type of parenting. Wherein my parents are always in authority and rules are given, yet they are so gentle and loving. They demand and respond to us equally. I am not restricted to all the things that I want to be involved in, especially in choosing my peers. Eventhough sometimes they are strict, they have clear reasons behind it. And they make us to understand the consequences of their behavior. And this type of their parenting style affects us positively. As a child, a buddy, and a student, I’m so sociable and so friendly; I have a lot of friends. I do not lack involvement with other people. And I do not feel any deprivation of social life. 2. As a future teacher, how would you establish good home-school collaboration? How can you work well with the parents? How can you help them? How can they help you?13 | F S 1 - E p i s o d e 6 ( H o m e - S c h o o l L i n k )
  14. 14. A way I can establish home-school collaboration with parents is by being acquaintance to build rapport and gain information from them. Simple small talk, about weather, traffic, a local event, any of those hundreds of things that adults use to make contact with one another, can be appropriate at the beginning of our relationship. But eventually it is necessary for me to talk about the child. An inviting question could be, “What has my student said about his school activities?” It would be necessary to ask open-ended questions in order to get the parents talking about their child and to share information that may help me with the student in school. In order to have a good working relationship with the parents, I need to think like one, to genuinely send off caring and concerned messages when speaking about their child and to create a welcoming environment to their guardians. Positive, honest and clear communication is suggested as the foundation to building personalized relationships with parent where each of us understands and respects each other’s perspective. Working together toward shared goals with shared power, this collaboration can require ongoing planning, development and even evaluation. This can mean soliciting support from the school for needs like release time to meet up with parents/families in the community or development of a family support area in the school. Together, the parents and I can discuss expectations for their child’s achievement and our respective roles in helping the child meet these expectations. As part of an educational institution in the future, I can develop programs to promote effective home-school- partnerships that support positive academic, behavioral and social competencies for all students in my school. I’ll look to be engaged in efforts to increase mutual respect, understanding, caring and flexibility among families and the school community. Parents’ role on the other hand will involve regular communication with me about their childs progress, encouragement of leisure reading with their children, participation in school functions, athletics, and other extra-curricular activities, monitoring homework completion, frequent communication with their children about academic and behavioral expectations and progress. They can also participate in school as committee member or volunteers.14 | F S 1 - E p i s o d e 6 ( H o m e - S c h o o l L i n k )
