The researcher carried out the qualitative approach, which describes the data after observations. A total of five parents were involved in this research as a participant. Data were collected by using interviews on Whatsapp with ten questions for each parent as a participant in this research. The findings indicated that parents have a crucial role in assisting their children in improving their reading ability. They played their role as teachers, motivators, and facilitators. Parents acted as a teacher to provide examples of correct pronunciation. Then, working as a motivator to motivate their children in English reading was fun and useful. Finally, parents acted as a facilitator by providing a comfortable learning environment. Therefore, parents’ role in the Paired Reading (PR) method is considered effective in improving children reading ability.
