In both conditions, parents will have access to Parent Academy. Parent Academy provides parenting classes, homework assignments for the parent and target child, evaluations for both the parent and target child, and assessments for the target child. The parenting classes and homework are designed to improve the skills of target children, provided the parent invests time in these activities. The evaluations and assessments are designed to measure target child skills. For all four activities, parents receive financial incentives.
For attending parenting classes, parents will receive earnings in cash. For homework assignments, evaluations, and assessments, only parents in the immediate condition will receive earnings in cash. Parents in the delayed condition will have their earnings deposited into a bank account that is only accessible when the target child enrolls in post-secondary school.
