With a global pandemic and unprecedented changes being thrust upon families and students, parents and caregivers may find themselves struggling to navigate these times and best support their children in their academic pursuits. For many families, schools have been closed and students are transitioning to online or learning at home. This presents many challenges and obstacles, and parents and caregivers may feel confused and overwhelmed. By examining the vital role of parents in a child’s success as well as the many factors that foster learning and meaningful growth in students, we can help parents best support their students throughout these times of fear and uncertainty.
