Science of Parenting: Children, Parents and Homework



AMES, Iowa – Children of all ages are more likely to be motivated in school when parents stay positive about school and homework, note family life specialists Donna Donald and Lori Hayungs. In September Donald and Hayungs share ideas for making homework a positive part of children’s school experience in the Science of Parenting blog from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.

Learn more from their tips on the blog throughout the month of September and in a four-minute podcast.

Parents can join in the conversation and share thoughts and experiences, as well as how they handle parenting responsibilities.
