Students' and parents' attitudes towards physical education and workout
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Sports and Physical Education

Abstract

The aim of the study was to examine the attitudes of primary school students and their parents towards physical education and workout. The paper begins with the argument that positive attitudes of both the students and their parents are essential for active participation of students in the teaching process of physical education and working-out in their free time. The conducted research was of a non-experimental, explorative type, in which two Likert type questionnaires were used. The sample comprised 299 respondents from two primary schools in Belgrade and 299 parents. The results indicate that both the students and their parents have positive attitudes towards physical education and working out, and significant correlation was found between the students' and their parents' attitudes. Highlighted is the need for close cooperation between school and parents in developing positive attitudes in students towards engaging in physical exercises.
