Abstract
The purpose of this study is to see the involvement of parents of early childhood in familiarizing children to take care of themselves during at home. The method used in this research is explorative study with descriptive analysis. The research was conducted in February of 2016. The research place was in South Tangerang, Indonesia. The research subjects were 30 mothers of children with 5-6 years old who joined in Pos PAUD. The results show that in general parental involvement in improving children's independence is good enough but still needs to be improved in terms of training children to eat without feeding, making simple food and drink, and clean up the cutlery. Therefore the Pos PAUD as non-formal institution of early childhood education needs to think about the appropriate engagement strategy for parental involvement during at home is more optimal.
