Parenting 2.0: How do parents use the Internet?
University of Minnesota researchers in Extension and the College of Education and Human Development recently launched a new online research project called "Parenting 2.0" to determine how parents utilize the Internet and technology. Extension family relations specialist Jodi Dworkin explains the goal of the research.
Dworkin also says the Internet can connect parents to provide support and share advice.
Parents who use the Internet and are willing to share their experiences are encouraged to visit a survey website at www.extension.umn.edu/go/1036. The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
