Northwest Iowa — With the kids or grandkids home from school, perhaps things are getting a little louder at your house than you would like. Perhaps the battle of wills is happening again. There is help.
Iowa State University Extension reminds parents of their parenting website at scienceofparenting.org. We talked to Lori Hayungs, the Extension parenting and child development representative for northwest Iowa, and she told us a little about the web site.
Recently the site has also covered overindulgence and a response to the Connecticut school shootings. She says they cover all ages from the toddler temper tantrums through the rebellion of the teenage years. She says if you’re looking for a particular topic, you can just search the archives.
Again, that parenting web site is scienceofparenting.org.
