Questions for Parents of Kids 2 or Younger

100sq_BPH027Our friends at Chicago’s Erikson Institute, a graduate school devoted to improving the health and education of children up to age 8, have launched a new survey and they want to hear from parents of children age 2 and younger. The goal of the survey is to study, essentially, how well a parent feels about his or her parenting skills.

Lead researcher Tracy Moran, Ph.D., assistant professor at Erikson, explains why she’s hoping you’ll participate: “Your input will help illustrate the peaks and valleys of parenting in those first two years. The benefits will be far-reaching, to generations of future parents and their children.” Through survey results, Dr. Moran will:

  • identify specific tasks that are especially difficult for most parents
  • gain knowledge that will aid physicians, nurses, and other professionals in supporting parents
  • help professionals identify parents at risk for postpartum adjustment, depression, and anxiety

You can fill out the survey here. Please note that the first page says that the survey can take between 30 to 40 minutes to complete, but having taken it myself, I can say that it’ll probably only require half that time.

    Whenever my daughter gets scared I hold and rock her, telling her everything is ok, and will sometimes sing or read to her, and if all else fails I tuck her into bed with me and my husband and she falls asleep instantly (But this one can lead to having to retrain her to sleep in her own bed).
