Understanding the family systems and structures of our diverse populations is one of the most important tasks of professionals in education. Children learn from their family, school, and community. They learn from their experiences by observing, talking, and interacting with their environment. Parents play a pivotal role in the education of their children. However, as illustrated by case studies that focus mostly on Asian families, cultural definitions and differences can create conflict between the family and educators—conflict that can end in tragedy. Creating a school-home educational relationship is crucial to the needs of the child. This article provides suggestions for creating and providing an optimal learning environment for children to help build a foundation for academic and life success. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
