Frequently Asked Questions

When are appointments scheduled?
We schedule appointments at a time that is most convenient for you. Appointments can be scheduled on a weekday or weekend day.

Can I get individualized feedback about my child’s performance in the study?
Our research is interested in general trends of parenting and children’s development in different cultural groups. Therefore, there are no right or wrong answers to the questions that we ask. Due to our focus on general trends, we do not evaluate each individual child on his/her performance, and we cannot provide comparisons to other children’s performances. However, as the information becomes available during the course of the study, we will be happy to send you summaries of the main findings if you are interested.

What do I get from participating?
The benefits of participating in each project will be described in detail when you contact us.
