How important are parental expectations to student success?

Parental expectations are vital to a student's success. Oftentimes when parents have high expectations for students, students rise to the occasion and meet those expectations - accelerating, pushing themselves, and working hard to meet that goal. However, on the opposite side, when expectations are not set very high and sometimes even set very low, students do not challenge themselves and oftentimes do not work to their fullest potential.
