Effect of parental encouragement on achievement motivation of adolescents of rural and urban area
This research used survey methods and an evolutionary context to explore the relationship between children’s perceptions of their parent’s academic engagement, children’s personal characteristics and their school achievement motivation. A sample of 100 students, 50 of urban and rural each, was selected for this purpose. Parents of academically motivated children have a cordial relationship with their children. Evidence shows that students have an advantage in school when their parents encourage and support their school activities. Parents of urban children are more optimistic, encouraging, caring and displaying more empathy for their children than parents of rural children.
