THE EFFECT OF PARENT EXPOSURE ON THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF STUDENTS

 

CHAPTER ONE

 

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

 

In Nigeria today every parent brings up their children in their own way depending on their Religious belief, social background and their level of exposure. Every parent dream good dreams for their children but most of them cannot do more than they could because of the level of their exposure.

What more can a parent do outside all they could do?

This really affecting the way they bring up their children knowing the fact that it is solely the responsibility of the parent to train up a child. The level of parent exposure is dependent on the background of parents. Most parent were not really opportune to go to school because of the background they came from and this chain continues. Lack of financial stability can render a good dream useless. No parent does not want to go to school but if the finance to continue is no longer there most of them might drop out of school except for the lucky parents.

When a woman’s nutritional status improves, so too does the nutrition of her young children(Lisa et al., 2003). These differences do not express themselves consistently as expected in the case of every family; rather they influence the average tendencies of families for different occupational classes.” (Rothestein, 2004). In line with the above assertion, Hill et al. (2004) had also argued that socio–economic status of parents do not only affect the academic performance, but also makes it possible for children from low background to compete well their counterparts from high socio – economic background under the same academic environment. Moreover, Smith, Fagan and Ulvund (2002) had asserted that significant predicator of intellectual performance at age of 8 years included parental socio economic status (SES). In the same vein, other researchers had posited that parental SES could affect school children as to bring about flexibility to adjustment to the different school schedules (Guerin et al., 2001). The academic performance of students in some selected secondary schools in Benue differ from each other (2009). Finding revealed that those with less scores were from a humble background with limited level of exposure.

 

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

 

The level of exposure of most parent in Nigeria plays a vital role in the child upbringing, financial instability is the major cause of lack of exposure of most parents.

This is visible both in their behavior and their level of reasoning which made it difficult to associate with people of high social status in the community.

Most children are born intelligent but might end up without the dream because they could not get the support from their parents who are their first mentor before their school teachers.

The scholarship scheme these days are no longer fought coming as it use to; this is really affecting the intelligent children that does not have any body to support them.

If the federal government of Nigeria could look into the society today to resolve some of these problem in some of the local government areas  in Benue state to aid the children with a bright future actualize their dreams the community will be a better place.
