The Science of Parenting
Did you know toddler tantrums are an expression of both the desire for choices AND the need for limits? If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of a temper tantrum, you fully realize parenting is not for the faint of heart.
On this episode of Did You Know, Lori Hayungs, ISU Extension and Outreach Human Sciences Specialist in Family Life, discusses strategies for parenting in challenging moments in addition to everyday parenting, trends, and the latest parenting research.
Learning about parenting now goes well beyond the large thick book you received as a baby gift. Hayungs discusses current topics ranging from everyday parenting to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES). She shares a new ISU Extension and Outreach online resource launched in January of 2018 called The Science of Parenting. The Science of Parenting covers a variety of topics, from teaching responsibility to teens, to determining how the amount of screen time affects children’s attention skills in school. This research-based resource is an instructional warehouse of parenting podcasts, publications and blogs on current parenting issues.
