Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

Education is the most valuable gift that parents can provide to their children all over the globe, regardless of where they live. A parent striving to maximize their children’s potential while not investing in their education is equivalent to a virgin wanting to give birth while not being deflowered and this is not an exaggeration in any way. Everything is an illusion, a futile journey. This is due to the fact that education is essential to the development of any child, as well as the development of a nation or community. Educational attainment is essential for the development of knowledge and skills. Instilling skills and talents in future generations is a method that may be used to achieve this goal. The manner in which a child is raised has consequences not just for the child, but also for the whole community. When a child is growing up, he or she spends the bulk of his or her time at home and the environment in which he or she is reared has an influence on his or her cognitive development. Families should be involved in the development of their children’s character and thinking in order to ensure that they grow up healthily. The family, particularly the parents, has a significant impact on the academic success of secondary school students, because family and parental support financially, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually influences a student’s academic ability to a significant degree, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. However, with parents having to be transfer d from one place to the other due to the nature of their job, which has made it have a huge set back on the academic performance of the learners in the sense that they may have to repeat classes, get accustomed to the new schools environment, learning to make new friends, easing in into a new teaching and learning process(Duyile, 2022).
