“Coming together is a beginning; Keeping together is progress; Working together is success.” – Henry Ford


School is one of the most important places in a children’s life. Children who have entered school will develop various aspects. However, you must understand that the efforts of schools and teachers alone are not sufficient to ensure children’s development in a better direction.

The role of parents is also very important in this process. In fact, parents are the primary educators for each child. Schools are educators who help parents work.

However, looking from the perspective of the writer as a teacher, in fact, there are still lots of parents who do not understand this. Most parents give up all kinds of education both intellectual, spiritual, and skills to teachers in schools.

Therefore, attending parents’ meetings at school is important. Many things you can know and discuss during this meeting.
