The aim of the study was to determine the effects of family dynamics and the practices of teachers, in relation to the frequency with which the mothers reported to participate in activities related to the education of the children. For this purpose, an evaluation was carried out in four public primary schools of a municipality in the Northwest of Mexico, serving a population of low level economic income. As part of the study, 170 mothers were selected by means of a nonprobabilistic sampling. By using simple linear regression it was found that family dynamics, and the practices of teachers to involve the parents in education, explain a significant part (R2 = .67) of mothers reporting participation in the education of the children. It was concluded that both variables exert a positive influence in the involvement of mothers in education.
