Abstract

This study aimed to reveal the readiness of parents to position themselves as teachers for children during the pandemic. This research was conducted in the Sub-district of Tenda, Langke Rembong District, Manggarai Regency. The research subjects consisted of parents of elementary school students who worked in private and non-permanent institutions. The subjects were 10 people who represented hired and non-permanent or temporary workers. From this subject, 5 people represented private workers, and 5 others represented temporary workers. The data were collected through direct interviews with the research subjects. The results showed that the parents experienced limitations in guiding their children. These limitations include (1) difficulty in managing time to complete office work and time to guide children. (2) difficulties in dealing with children, especially when children are always not ready to be guided by their parents. (3) parents are overwhelmed by student difficulties in completing school assignments. (4) parents have difficulty in motivating and providing reinforcement for children's interest in learning. (5) parents still experience difficulties in directing their children to create children's good characteristics. (6) children prefer to play than complete their tasks. (7) parents who are not accustomed to guiding children find it overwhelming in guiding children
