Parents care more about their children’s education than before Score: 4.5 December 14th, 2017 by 222222222222222222222222

There are many things to consider when thinking about whether parents care more about their honey's education than before or not. Different people may have different ideas about this statement. Despite what some people may insist that parents are less involved in children's education than were parents in the past, or as the same as before, I believe that parents pay more attention to their honey's education than before. And I am willing to discuss it by proposing three compelling reasons.

First of all, increasingly intensifying competitions between students attract more attentions from their parents to student's education. As we all know, good education can help us to find a suitable job. Because of too much competitions, parents may feel nervous and worry about their children's future. Thus, they want to catch up with their children's education from primary school to university. For instance, one of my neighbor, David, a middle school student, wants to get a professor's position from Stanford University in future. His parentsare focus on his study more than two hours a day now, even though they needed to work every weekday. Due to his parents' concerned, he was more excellent at school, compared to other students. Hence, because of competitions, parents need more time to be involved in their children's education.

In addition, fewer children in a family also help parents to focus on their children's education.In the past, more than three children in one family was a general phenomenon and it made parents did not have much time to pay attention to one child's study. Not only because they needed to support the whole big family, but also they need more time to babysit little baby. For example, my grandfather has three children and my father is the oldest one among the three children. When my father arrived at educational age, because of too much children in one family, he needed to help grandparents to care about my uncle who was only two years old, rather than my grandparents paid attention to my father's study. In contrast, nowadays, many families only have one child and maybe their grandparents also only have one child. That means,two or more adults are around one child in one family. Therefore, parents have more time to care about their honey's education.
Last but not least, because more and more parents get well-educated, and they know how strong the attraction from knowledge is. All of them get the benefits from education, so they also want their children to pursuit rich in knowledge. A recent study, a survey of the well-educated and the poor-educated, helped us to interpret this idea. It shows that more than eighty three percent of the well-educated use more than fifty hours a week on their children's study and less than twenty percent of the poor-educated can do that. Most of the poor-educated parents did not care about children's study. Based on this study, we can find that well education also helps parents more focus on their children's study.

Broadly speaking, in the light of reasons such as more serious competition, fewer children and more well-educated parents, it is natural to believe that parents today focus more on children's education than were parents in the past.
