This research was conducted in Mvomero and Kilosa district of Morogoro Region involving 4 schools of which involves 92 participants were interviewed and the other 80 were engaged in focused group discussion. The study employed simple random sampling technique to obtain parents who were involved in interview and focus group discussion. Furthermore, the study employed a case study design through qualitative approach where semi-structured interview and focused group discussion analysis were involved in data collection. The data were analysed based on themes and resulted into the emergence of different sub-themes. Data obtained through semi-structured interviews, focused group discussion, and (FGD) documentary review provided an opportunity to understand factors that hinder children development of reading and writing skills. The study findings revealed that most factors that hinder learning are based on home environment. The study revealed that parents and other caretakers should play their role in assisting children to develop their reading and writing skills. Also there should be cooperation between parents and teachers to assist the children in developing their reading and writing skills. The study concludes that parents and teachers should work collaboratively to develop reading and writing in children. Lastly, it is recommended that parents should buy materials like books, and they make time to assist their children at home. en_US
