Parents often think that the only way a child can be successful in academics is to have the best technology possible. While that helps the bases of success is much less technological. If we look at Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, a psychological perspective on education, it is shown that the bases of success and self-actualization are the fulfillment of needs. The base is seeing that basic needs are physiological. This means that they are getting food, sleep, water - essential items that are required for life and health.
The next step is to have safety. They are living in an environment that helps to protect them and danger is not present in their daily lives. Then they must feel that they belong. The belonging level is achieved through love, emotional support, affection, and being part of groups. Next, they need self-esteem. Not only is it self-esteem, but the esteem of others to allow them to learn and grow and express their ideas. The final step is achieving self actualization or reaching one's potential. This can have many facets such as potential in academically, socially, and professionally.
