ABSTRACT

This study elaborates on the quality of family education in fulfilling childcare rights. The results of the study found that family resilience is a factor that influences the quality of childcare. The resilience of the family in this study was measured by three indicators, namely education and parental knowledge regarding care, parental involvement in child care, availability and adequacy of time to communicate with children. This study found that the quality of education and knowledge of parents related to childcare is still weak, with only 27.9% of fathers and 36.9% of mothers seeking information on caring for children before marriage and only 38.9% of fathers and 56.2% of mothers seek information on caring for children after marriage. Parental involvement directly in the process of parenting is also still low, only 26.2% of Fathers and 25.8% of Mothers stated that the process of parenting was not helped and was not transferred to others. The quantity and quality of communication time of parents with children is also still very minimal, in quantity the average time to communicate with children is only 1 hour per day which is 47.1% for Father and 40.6% for mother. The weak education of parents in the process of fulfilling child care rights has the potential to lead to not maximally developing children in the family.
