This study is an attempt to qualitatively explore the relationship between parenting and children’s academic performance. By making use of Bronfenbrenner’s interactions model, the study aims to deconstruct the linear approach between parenting and good academic performance in past literature. Hence, using the Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis, it narrates the process of parenting and its many nuances as identified by mothers themselves from a sample of 12 students of a school in Gulshan e Iqbal, with 6 being above-average performers and 6 being below-average performers. Findings of the study provide an insight into the many subjectivities that the term ‘good parenting’ entails and also provides evidence for parenting being a product of a complex interplay between the microsystem, mesosystem, exosystem, chronosystem and macrosystem. Some trends in high-performing students are seen, but results largely support the interactions model.
