This study is focused on understanding why parents are involved in their children’s homework and what strategies they employ in the engagement process. The study used a survey questionnaire that focused on the impact of parental involvement on students’ homework issues. Survey questionnaires were distributed to the parents, students, and teachers through MS Teams and e-mail. The result reveals that parental involvement affects students’ learning.
