Summary/Abstract: The aim of this article is to examine the related research literature conducted on the relationship between parental involvement in education and children’s academic achievement. Researchers have suggested that parental involvement influences the academic performance of students at kindergarten, primary school, secondary school as well as high school. Parental involvement is defined in terms of various factors such as discipline or the process of socializing and parenting children in the household, parental aspirations and expectations for children’s education and academic achievement, communication, discussions about school, and participation in school activities. Parents discuss school activities with children, monitor, check and help with their homework, communicate with teachers, attend school functions and parent-teacher conferences in order to ensure better academic performance of their children. They expect and aspire for their children to have higher rates of educational attainment and higher academic achievement. These educational expectations and aspirations of parents are positively associated with academic achievement of children.
