Post subject: Play and Development
My name is Amy (MomOfOneSon). I am the mother of a six-year-old boy and a Masterís student in child development. As both a parent and student I am fascinated by the ways children play and interact with others. My goal is to get a better understanding of the ways in which play influences development.
To achieve this goal I would like to combine hundreds of reports from parents, who are the experts on their child's development. That means I need to find a lot of parents who are willing to share!
Specifically I am looking for parents with children between 1 and 3-years-old who would be interested in completing an online questionnaire (about 20 minutes in length).
The link is http://www.babyplaystudy.org.
If you personally know any parents that might be interested in these studies, and if you could forward this information on to them I would be very grateful.
Thank you for your time,
