If you’re a parent, you know helping your children with their homework is not always the easiest task. Luckily, there are new online tools available to help!

National PTA President Laura Bay was featured on Good Morning America, on Thursday, Sept. 24, in a segment about the new “Be A Learning Hero” initiative and website that helps parents assist their kids with homework.

In August 2015, the National PTA, Common Sense Media, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, GreatSchools and many other parent and education organizations launched the Be A Learning Hero website to provide families with the necessary tools and resources to help their children start the new school year strong and stay on track to success.

Through BeALearningHero.org, parents can find videos, tips, worksheets, and other resources specific to their children’s needs, including:

    Super 5: A Back-to-School Toolkit for Parents, which provides five important steps parents can take to be prepared for the school year.

    Skill Builders: Worksheets and guides which are designed to help improve children’s skills in areas where they need support.

    Multi-Language Learning Tools: Tools are provided in English and Spanish to help parents help their children succeed in math and English language arts—searchable by grade, subject and content type.

    Homework Help Desk: Parents can get one-on-one support from trained teachers to help their children with their homework assignments.
