Parents encourage their children to focus on their school work. They always have the best in mind for their children and will do anything to ensure their child’s success in school.

For this, parents should be praised because of their desire to give their children the best life possible through their education.

Students need parents or guardians to make it through school. Most students would give up on school before graduation if it were not for their parents. Parents are there to help motivate students to continue pushing forward.

Parents should be praised for what they do. Even though they can make the life of a student difficult, it is for the greater good. If parents weren’t there to help students, their future lives would be horrible. That is why students should praise their parents.

Even though most parents are there to help children succeed in school, some children do not take advantage of it. This group of kids find it as a burden to have their parents looking over their shoulder and start to dislike them because of it. This is understandable because it could be stressful for a student, but the truth is they are just trying to help.

There are also parents who don’t care if their children succeed and it can cause a lot of hardship on a child, but it can also motivate a child to do more than their parents could ever expect. In other words, yes parents should be praised for their determination to help their children succeed in school but sometimes it can be better if they don’t try so hard for their children to do well in school.

Children should show their parents how much they appreciate what they do for them by doing well in school and telling them how much their help matters.

Most parents are kind-hearted and are willing to ensure a student’s success, but it does take hard work on both parts.
