The Role of Parents in Online Classes

194: The role of parents in online classes

If you have a child in online classes, you have probably wondered what the role of parents in online classes is. As a teacher of online classes at FundaFunda Academy, here are suggestions we as teachers there, have for you as parents.

1. Don’t forget you are their homeschool parent.

2. Your role will change as they get older

3. Young children

  • participate with them
  • help with tech
  • provide snacks
  • be nearby

4. Upper elementary/middle school student

  • more hands-off
  • check they are doing their work
  • ask questions
  • ask for input on class selection

5. High School students


  • make sure they know when the class starts and what expectations are
  • still ask them about the class
  • check their grades / are they submitting work on time – can relax this one they prove to be reliable
  • help them develop schedules, overcome learning differences (Listen to ep 125 and 126 on Modifying online curriculum for special needs students)
  • be their cheerleader


  • do their work for them
  • help them cheat
  • email the teacher for them (with some exceptions)
