According to the text, family centered parenting is a good model for a number of reasons. Parents are largely responsible for meeting children's needs. How families interact and model behavior are strong causes for developmental processes. If parents welcome intervention or suggestions, the school system can be helpful in improving parents roles with children (Morrison, 2009).

Some ways of increasing parents knowledge is giving workshops on school policies and procedures, giving adult education and training programs.
