This is an interview by Erica Mizelle with Dr. William Jeynes, guest speaker at the 2009 Parenting Speaker Series at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Here is the introduction, with a link to the entire podcast, below:
"The start of a school year can be an exciting, as well as an anxious time for parents and children. Children think about what they will wear on the first day of school, whether or not they’ll like their new teacher, and if their friends will be in their class. Parents wonder if their child will be inspired to learn, or be bored to tears. They wonder if the new teacher will nurture their child’s strengths and advance the areas where he or she needs improvement.
"Research has shown children and adolescents do better academically when parents are involved in their lives, including school activities. Children who do well academically are more likely to become healthy adults and do well financially, compared to children who do poorly in school. Today we’re talking to Dr. Jeynes about the relationship of parenting to school success. Dr. Jeynes is a Professor of Education at California State University, Long Beach and has written six books and 60 academic articles on parenting and school success."
