The purpose of this article is to provide a model for effective parental engagement with children's learning. The model arises from a comprehensive review of the literature on parental involvement and engagement. The model highlights six elements of effective parental engagement: authoritative parenting (which underpins the other five elements), and the need to begin engagement early, to take an active (rather than passive or reactive) interest in the child's learning, to continue this interest throughout the child's life, to have high educational aspirations and to stay engaged. Implications for schools are discussed.
