The Nebraska Strong Families Lab would like to learn about parents’ experiences living with young children!
Researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are recruiting families who have a child between 3-5 years old or an infant between 0-16 months old.
Participants in the infant study will have the opportunity to wear a GoPro camera at home! If you complete all parts of this study, the lab will even compile and edit a home video for your family, using your GoPro footage!
The study with 3-5-year-olds allows parents and children to have a special one-on-one playtime experience in the lab. While there aren’t many fun activities available outside of the home during these unprecedented times, the Nebraska Strong Families Lab implements several rigorous COVID precautions in order to provide a safe environment for parents and children to enjoy time together.
Each study includes at $100 – $190 in compensation to the families as a thank you for full participation.
