Family Dynamics effect on Student Performance
In discussing how the state of family dynamics affect the students performance, I found that it makes the difference in their ability ,willingness, and opportunity to engage in intellectual growth. Successful students have family that encourage them to perform at their best academically. Successfully skillful parenting along with a supportive community, other resources and a healthy environmental status at home is very important to the success of students academic performance. This would include the basic needs being met in the way of food, clothing, shelter safety stability, guidance, adequate health care, and loving support. All of which contributes to the students readiness to learn and increases students ability to learn and provide them with an advantage in school. If these basic needs are not met the student is at risk of being inattentive and uncooperative in school which of course leads to decreased performance. Also positive dynamics at home encourages the students readiness to learn when there is consonance between home and school expectations. By students having the positive family involvement ,it helps to develop specific knowledge and skills in academic, social, and emotional domains.
Another means of family dynamics which has an influence on student performance is homeowner-ship. Society often focus on economic and social factors influencing cognitive and behavioral outcome, however homeowners affect their child’s academic performance. In comparison of homeowners to renters, there is a 13 to 23% higher quality home environment, greater cognitive ability, and fewer child behavior problems. Those students math achievements are 9% higher, reading is 7% higher, and behaviors are 1 to 3% lower. In all that I have discussed it is a true indicator that family conditions and situations possess power over the performance and outcomes of students academic success.
