PBS PARENTS HELPS BUSY MOMS & DADS

LPB Wondering how to help your children with homework — or how to get them to do it without a struggle? PBS Parents can help!

Eating out at a restaurant with your children? Waiting for the food to arrive to the table can feel like an eternity. But don’t just hand over your smartphone to pass the time after you’ve ordered! You can take the opportunity to use the items you typically find on a restaurant table to talk about scientific concepts like the properties of water and air pressure. Once you and your kids start playing with dinner table science, you might hear for the first time, “Aww, our food is here already!”
