their lives. The childs achievement and success informal education system depends
upon the encouragement level that comes from parents side. Parents should be
aware of the childs progress in the school through their reports and often

also cause them to set unrealistic goals for themselves, in terms of intellectual
ability, aptitude and social economic circumstances. This invites frustration anxiety
and inevitable discontent.
