PHILADELPHIA - Father's Day is rapidly approaching, and an increase in the dad-jokes told throughout the land. It's important to know that dads are far more useful than as bearers of eye-rolling humor.


As we prepare for celebrating dads and all their glory, it seems like the perfect time to talk about how much dads help their children get the best education they can.

Unfortunately, one area where dads could use a little extra help is in the homework department. Brainly — the world's largest peer-to-peer learning community — asked 1,000 American parents about their perceptions of their children's homework.

Of the 86% of dads who help their school-age children with their homework, half of those polled say that they get stumped by their children's homework.

The US States Where Dads Are The Main Homework Helper

  • Florida - 44%
  • New York - 43%
  • Ohio - 42%
  • California- 41%
  • Pennsylvania - 41%
  • Texas - 40%
  • Virginia - 38%
  • Illinois - 38%
  • Indiana - 36%
  • Michigan - 35%

Dads love life lessons, and 40% of them want their children to be self-sufficient in seeking answers to their questions independently. 24% encourage them to learn from their peers.

The fact is, dads are great resources for their kids, and many work hard to help their kids succeed.
