  1. understand how a worldwide crisis affects the way parents interact with their child around education.
  2. understand how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed parent’s beliefs about being involved in their child’s education (i.e., self-efficacy, time and energy, and role construction).
  3. understand how changes to parents' beliefs about being involved in their child’s education relates to changes in parents' involvement behaviors in their child’s education.

Description

Due to the changes to education during COVID-19, it is important to consider how parenting practices around children’s education have changed. Uncovering the factors associated with changes in parent involvement gives insight into why some parents provide enriching educational environments while others become more disengaged. This poster shares results from a study investigating how a worldwide crisis affects the way parents interact with their child around education, and how child ADHD symptoms impact parents’ involvement.
