Parenting styles and teaching styles can influence student performance and behavior in school in several different ways.
Parenting styles that are at times overbearing and overprotective can inhibit student performance in some cases.
A divorce, family tragedy, sickness in a family can put immense pressure and stress on parenting style of the parents of the student. Stress, instability, financial problems are all factors in a family setting that can influence student’s performance and behavior in school to different extents. Various pressures can influence the student in various ways and according to the student’s psychological strengths in dealing with some of those pressures.
Of course, having many pressures can be too much for anyone at any time of their lives since things can become too hard for our emotions and thought patterns to stay focused on solutions and the present tasks in student life and work.
Finding The Right Balance at Home and at School
A student’s well being and emotional response can project into their performance and behavior often. Indulgent parenting styles can also lower the student’s performance in school by not setting enough limits to a student’s behavior and not adequately reacting to poor performance in school.
Teaching styles can vary and at times, if too monotonous – affect a student’s experience and motivation in work. Combining a monotonous teaching style and issues at home, the student can suffer greatly in his performance and behavior at school.
Teaching styles that help the student how to express themselves creatively, through academics and how to deal with life can help the student in long term.
Over time, the student can recognize that troubles are to be overcome, assuming the teacher is aware of underlying issues relating to the student’s declining performance in school.
Teaching styles that communicate effectively with the student, that reach out to them and try to work with them with paying attention to any troubles the student might have can work efficiently in overcoming the hurdles a struggling student in having in school.
Children Can Suffer From ‘Emotional Jet Lag’
A student can be influenced academically, both by parenting styles and teachings styles. Academic performance and behavior in school can at times, be strongly influenced by situations at home.
Challenges at home or at school, can make it difficult for students to follow through with school work. The stress, inability to concentrate, worry and lack of adequate communication within a family or with teachers and advisors at school – can have lasting effects on academic results.
Know Your Children’s Teaching Styles
Different teaching styles have also influenced student performance by allowing a more diverse insight into how to approach homework, school work, and even problems in life. Sometimes, it is easier if a student is shown how to pose and solve a problem than to discuss personal challenges.
Other times, it is easier academically to be treated as an adult by teachers when discussing topics, issues and dealing with other school assignments, which can positively influence the student’s approach to stress at home.
Conclusion: Make Communication Your Priority
Working with a teacher and adviser is of great importance in completing all and any academic work and explaining if any troubles of personal and private matter arise. Adjusting to both the student’s and teacher’s style and routines can better ensure that the academic potential of the student doesn’t suffer or is diminished for the time being.
Communicating and being honest and patient will contribute the most to both parties along the scholastic paths.
