This study examined the school related activities that parents in Botswana engage in with their children. The study also examined how parents in Botswana perceive their involvement and expectations of their children's academic achievement goals. Sixteen parents (15 females and 1 male) who had children in standards five, six, or seven participated in the study. Participants were parents from four different villages in the Central District Council in Botswana. Parents were more involved with their children at home by encouraging their children to put effort. Parents also went to school to communicate with the teachers at school. Some parents assisted with homework even though most parents were challenged by the content their child was learning. Parents had high expectations of their children's academic life regardless of their children's performance in class. Various beliefs mingled with parents' expectations and their children's achievement goal. Although parents varied in their involvement, there was not much difference in their expectations. Lack of time and challenging subject matter were challenges to parents' involvement
