PARENTAL ATTITUDES AND CHILD’S BEHAVIOUR IN PRIMARY SCHOOL

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

According to Oxford dictionary a parent is a person’s father or mother, it can be either adoptive parent or biological parent while attitude can be seen as the way people think and feel about the way they behave towards their feeling of mind. The issue of child rearing has become more challenging during the past few years and increasingly greater expectations are leveled at educators and parents. Sheridan & Burt, (2009), claimed that there has been a dramatic decrease in the tradition of parental families while the proportion of single has increased. Ebbeck and Hoi Yin (2009), explained that a number of working mother of young children has risen over the past few decades, so has the use of child care.

Professionals defines good child rearing and the kind of rearing that should be implemented inside the citizens’ homes, yet parents have the main responsibility for rearing their children, even though today’s common discourse revealed how parents seem to carry unreasonable load of guilt and consider themselves insufficient in their rearing and parenting task.

Maljojoki (1989), explained that in Nigeria work was valued as the most important thing in life, over family life and free time in the 1970s. After the middle of the 1990s, the appreciations have started to change considerably in the opposite direction. Aryee, Shirinivas, & Hoon Tan (2005), explained that the value of upbringing is unquestionable actually, it seems that the modern children would need parental love and the safety provided at home maybe more than ever before, still, it is worth remembering that a mother work increasingly outside home.  Barnett, (2004) claimed that men have started to use more and more time with home craft and childcare during the past decades. These decisions concerning work family are not just about making compromises. Uusiautti and Määttä, (2010) said that for example positive paternal involvement influences positively the multiple domain of children’s lives from birth through adolescence.

Statement of the Problem

The influence of parental attitude on child’s behaviour has been a favourite topic to be investigated. It appears that nowadays most parents seems not to be active and alive to their divine and practical responsibilities of raising up their child.

Also some parent might endorse or value the responsiveness to children, but have difficulty express those feelings when child is misbehaving. As a result of this observation, the study focused on parental attitude that determine child’s behaviour.
