Earlier the parents and the relatives used to spend a lot of time and supervise the learning process of their children They used to check the homework of the children personaally and teach them. Thedy used to locate the classmates of their children and compare the notes. If the children were to be absent, then they would take the pain to borrow the books from their friends, so that when the child began again to go to school he would not feel embarressed or strange. But today as the parents have to go to work, they may not find time to check the homework nor any activities of the children. They may totally depend upon the tutor. Some times the parents used to cross question the c hildren, they used to present jokes and riddles, they used to have compitition between mumma's party and Daddy's party. There had been a great amusement when the grand parents would intervene and could hear of a roar of laughter. Today do the parents have time to recreate with their children?

Truthfully, whenever my parents tried to help me with schoolwork, they could never really be of any use to me. By the time I was in the fourth grade most of what I was learning was beyond what they could remember or had learned or could give me assistance with, so they left me to my own devices and had my older sister try to help me whenever I was extremely baffled. That isn't to say they didn't try to teach me other things that school never taught, and they did a fairly good job of it, it's just that they weren't capable of giving me help with the subjects I was given in school.

I've always had an interest in learning, even without help from anyone. Knowledge is a powerful tool and I've always loved to absorb new information and put it to use.

if a children has interest to learn it is easy to them to learn something but if the children is has no interest to learn then it is hard.. some parents force their children to learn something like striking their kids and it is not good way to teach children. my own idea if the child has no interest to learn some thing make a deal with the child like if you "if you get perfect on your exam we will go outing" or find any activities that the child wants to do.

not many parents are with their children nowadays, which is real sad. it seems that to make the family thrive, they go to work, but they are actually missing out. kids need their parents, and when they are not there, these children usually get lost in their lives. (not in a literal sense) and even some parents aren't raising their children the proper way, because they themselves have their own dark past that they might pass on to their children the bitterness they experience.

In the modern world, parents are way more busy now working for the family and paying for the child's education. I reckon some parents can spare some extra time at home with their kids but I guess parents prefer to work hard for more money and pretty much rely on tutors or school teachers to tend to their children in terms of education. It's not exactly traditional anymore where one parent such as the mother who stays home with the kids and can teach the kids. Now, people are more motivated to work or need to work in order to pay the rising bills. Some families get government benefits while some don't so those families need to work harder as they have more tax to be paid. But there are the weekends that parents can use to tend to their kids education. But a tutor is quite fine because my parents made me do tutor as a kid because they couldn't teach me. Some parents can't teach their kids so they need a tutor to teach better. Tutors can challenge and build a child's intelligence more than parents can but parents can guide along.
