WHAT IS EDUCATION?
All of the general and personalized learning-teaching processes that teach people the art of living in the best way is called education. The training aims to change the behaviour of the individual in a deliberate manner and for a purpose according to the pre-determined principles.
IMPORTANCE OF EDUCATION
As it can be understood from the definition we made under “What is education?” section, it is undoubtedly known that education facilitates human life and makes it more livable. The transfer of human beings from the caves to the plazas, from a small piece of land to the whole world, and even to go into space is the result of education.
Keeping up with the educational processes that will never come to an end as both individually and globally is a human responsibility and even a necessity.
Since it is easier to access information and process information in our age, human life can witness very different living standards. The technologies that we couldn't have imagined 20 years ago have now turned into elements that make our lives easier. In order to keep up with this rapid change, it is clear that children should go through a proper and effective educational process.
Every parent wishes his child to be a useful individual for himself/herself and for the environment. So we can address the importance of family in education and educated child rearing.
THE ROLE OF THE FAMILY IN EDUCATION
Intelligence is not the only factor influencing success in education! What is important is the ability to use intelligence in the right jobs, effectively. At this stage, the personality traits and habits of the individual come into play. This is quite important; it is a sensitive issue.
Studies show very clearly that 65% of the children's personality development is in the 0-6 age range. This research re-emphasizes the importance of the family in the child's personality development!
But what kind of effects does the family have on children?
In the preschool period, the education and interest of the child from the family is of high importance. The positive attitudes of the family in the 0-6-year-old preschool period and the conscious raising of their children turn into a sustainable success in the school period. On the contrary, it is known that children with problems have failed in school life. Children with personality and behaviour disorders can have adaptation problems when they start school.
A child, who has always been spoiled by family members and who has always been wanted, has difficulty accepting that all his wishes cannot be fulfilled when he starts school. The child, who has to face reality at once, can show anger, aggression or vice versa.
Such behaviors can lead to social exclusion or various psychological pressures. Confronted with such a situation, the child may experience loss of self-confidence, discomfort from the environment and a desire to move away. Therefore, from school and lectures, cooling, lack of interest, escaping and as a result academic failures can occur. As you can see, education is always intertwined with internal and external elements.
