Massachusetts Family Literacy Consortium
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The power of family literacy programs lies in the fact that they are intergenerational. Parents want their children to succeed in school and will actively support their children's success. However, far too many parents are unable to provide such support because they themselves lack the skills.
While family literacy improves the skills and educational level of parents and their children, it also improves the parenting and life skills of adults. Families learn to work together more effectively, and parents become more responsive to their children. The learning environment in the home is enriched as enthusiasm for learning grows within the family unit. Family members support each other, contributing to each person's success and leading to family success.
