One of the mostimportant matters in child education is parents’ participation in the education and training of their children. This is highly significant because children spend one half of their daily time at home under the surveillance of their parents. The continuance of parent participation into the school can both help the improvement of education and create problems for parents. This study aims at uncovering both the positive and negative consequences of parents’ participation at the primary education level. The methodology used in this research is qualitative, (phenomenological). The statistical population consisted of all elementary pupils’ parents of Tabriz City in the academic year 1391-92.
