FLIGHT - Family Dynamics

Research Question:
How do family relationship dynamics impact childhood development?

Basic Study Information

This study examines family dynamics and how they may impact childhood development. We are seeking participation from parents and their child (between the ages of 6-9 years old). Participants will complete computer games, have discussions with each other, and will be compensated for their time. For the first visit, a full-family (mom, dad, child) will be paid $250 and the child will be given a toy. For a family to qualify for this study, 1) parents need to have been living together as a couple with their child for at least one year; 2) parents need to be the biological parent of the child; 3) the child needs to be 6-8 years old at the first visit.
