Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has given birth to a new consensus, namely "Back home" where all activities that are commonly carried out outside the household are now all carried out indoors, which includes schooling. This makes parenting function even more comprehensive towards the responsibility of parents at home, especially in learning. Conditions like this certainly have a direct impact on students, that the existence of online learning has a big influence on cultural issues, values, attitudes, mindsets and identities. Nine mothers voluntarily became primary informants during the interviewed of this research which represents rural and urban communities spread across West Java. The results of this study have reveal that, with the use of online learning that has been going on for 1 year, the role of mothers is very much needed in assisting children during learning, many things happen when mothers do not accompany or guide their children in learning. The factors behind a mother's optimal roles at home include the mother’s knowledge and socioeconomic factors. The existing age gap between mother and child result in communication difficulties in learning, as mothers assume the child’s maturity age doesn’t need any necessary supervision in learning, and finally the mother's educational background is one of many crucial factors in the weak social control of their children.
