The role of parents in assisting children to develop self-potential is an interesting research study because it will expose the extent parents’ perspective influences their activeness in managing children’s self-development. Similarly, the purpose of this research is to find out parents’ perspectives regarding children’s multiple intelligence and parental participation in optimizing their potential. The theoretical study in this research presents the concept of the nine types of multiple intelligence delivered to 100 parents who have primary school children in the city of Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara Province, Indonesia. This study used a descriptive quantitative approach with descriptive survey research methods. Results of the study concluded that the understanding of parents regarding children’s multiple intelligence is at the level of just know and only a small number of parents assisted in the development of their children’s multiple intelligence. Mentoring by parents in the form of active participation through including their children in various courses, competitions, and spiritual guidance as a forum for developing children’s self-potential. Meanwhile, the obstacles faced by parents consist of several factors, namely: time, material, education level of parents, and the environment where children live. Therefore, parents need to be provided with skills in accompanying the child through seminars/training.
