How does Parental Engagement Affect Language Learning in Teenagers?
Language being the most important medium of communication and education, its development occupies an important place in the National Policy on Education and Programme of Action. Therefore, promotion of Hindi and other 21 languages listed in the schedule VIII of the constitution. This paper aims to examine the relationship between parental involvement and students learning achievement in language Hindi. A Multistage Sampling Design (MSD) was adopted for the selection of different sampling units. A randomly selected group of 150 students from 25 secondary schools of a district of Bihar and their parents participated in this study. In order to map out the objectives of the study, Parental Support Scale developed by Nandwana and a standard language Hindi achievement test developed by the SCERT survey team were employed to capture responses. The results indicate that students were not performing well in the language because their parents have little knowledge of the language. It was also found that girls achieved higher average scores than boys. Overall, the findings reveal that parental involvement appears to have facilitated children’s language learning and contributed to their literacy development as well.
