The Indonesian government has programs called Bina Keluarga Balita (BKB), Posyandu and Pos PAUD (early childhood education). BKB is used to provide knowledge of child development and the importance of children’s health. Posyandu and Pos PAUD are used to facilitate health and education of children. But, these programs didn’t facilitate parents to be an optimal mediator for their children. This conceptual paper consisted an idea that Mediated Learning Experience (MLE) need to be taught to parents. The Mediated Learning Experience could be integrateding in Pos PAUD to attempt to enhance parent- child quality of interaction. Parents who are able to mediate their children will help their children to be more optimal in their cognitive development. Parental role in educating children in Indonesia has less emphasis on analytical aspect so it impacted the children’s analytical capability. However, there is a need for the young generation to have competencies such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity in today’s globalization and rapid development era. Parents are role model which will influence the attitude and development of their children. When parents are able to be good mediators, the cognitive abilities of children will develop more optimal.
