    ABSTRACT: Research findings indicated the importance of parental role in the educational process of children providing support for the strong connection between parental role and educational process. The purpose of the present study was to examine the role of parental involvement in classroom life in Greek Primary and Secondary education. A sample of one hundred and fifty five (155) students (69 boys, 86 girls) ranging in age from eleven to fifteen years volunteered to participate in this study. For the purpose of the study, students completed the Classroom Life Measure, which took place during their lessons. The results showed that the pressure from their parents to the study the lessons contributed to the increase of the state-anxiety felt by children, but simultaneously to increase of the negative self-esteem. The parents of primary school students are engaged in a higher degree with the homework, but also seek their children’s participation in school activities.
