Students who discuss their studies, school activities, and other concerns with their parents feel safer in school, according to a study of children ages 10 to 14.

But parents' presence at the school volunteering, for instance, or attending meetings had little impact in those students' perceptions of school safety, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found. The study, published in June in the Journal of Child and Family Studies, draws on a nationally representative sample of more than 1,200 students.
