A new study from the University of Michigan suggests parents tend to overshare — posting pictures or stories about their kids online.
Researchers analyzed 30 years worth of data, tracking the different ways parents participate in their children’s academic lives — helping with homework, observing a child’s class and volunteering at their school — and the impact they have.
Using eye-tracking technology similar to that used to train doctors in laparoscopic surgery, Emory University researchers have been able to watch and quantify a baby’s gaze between 2 and 6 months old.
