Families in Lockdown

We were delighted by parents’ response to the survey we held last summer on child development in the COVID-19 pandemic: 2,506 parents of 3 to 8-year-olds from six countries took part! In the UK sample, one in five households had someone suffer COVID-19 symptoms, almost half experienced a drop in parental income and three quarters experienced work-family conflict. We are so grateful that parents were willing to share their child’s experiences with us and would like to share with you our latest newsletter (click here).
