Your Analysis Your findings and recommendations in the Learner Development Profile will help you answer thequestions here.1. From your home visit and interview, what do you think is the style ofparenting experienced by the learner? When I conducted an interview to the parents of the learner, I was ableto know that the style of parenting they have on their child is authoritative typein which this type of parenting the learner is self-governing but there are stillrules present that limit him in his play, actions, and joining with friends.2. Relating your data with what you learned from child and adolescent, whatfamily factors do you contribute to the development and over-all adjustmentof the learner in school? As what I have learned in Child and Adolescent Development the factorsthat I am going to contribute to the development and over – all adjustment ofthe learner in school are: first, it contribute how the learners are nurtured by hisparents, their financial setting, and cultural background of the family unit.3. Does the communication between the home-school have an affect on thelearner? If yes, what are these effects? “Education begins at home” This quote helped me in finding andunderstanding the behavior of the learner. What he did in school reflects how heis nurtured and reared by his parents at home. One of these effects for instance,if the learner act and possessed misconduct in the classroom, then what he didespecially when it is a serious type then surely his parents are expected to visitthe school and consult for the performance of his child to his adviser or teacher.Your Analysis1. Reflect on your own observation as a child. What type of parenting did youexperience? How did it affect you? When I was still a small boy until this present, I observed that the style ofparenting I have is authoritarian type of parenting. Wherein my parents arealways in authority and rules are given. But even if these type of parenting is notavailable I could still manage my time because I inherit the attitude of my motherwhich makes them happy that at this age of mine, I do not even engage myself ingoing out with my peers in the sense that I am afraid of the bad influence thatmight bring me to descend and as what my parent says, “temptations are alwaysthere surrounds you so be careful in doing something.” Her lines blessed me,anyway this affect me on my studies in the sense that, instead of spending mytime with other, I rather choose to stay and help my parents at home.2. As a future teacher, how would you establish good home – schoolcollaboration? How can you speak well with the parents? How can you helpthem? How can they help you? As teacher to be, I could establish good home – school collaboration byobserving the behavior of the learner in my class. I would be responsible enoughon their attitude for instance, if ever there is a trouble behind that create aconflict, problems in my students subsequently I will call the parents of thatlearner such that even they will be able to know how their child performed in myclass. Wherein through this, we can say that there is relationship between home– school link. NJP
