In an era of social distancing, how do parents, grandparents, and children keep in touch with each other? For example, how does your new grandbaby respond when you play peek-a-boo over FaceTime? Participate in this at home study to help us find out.

This research project consists of online surveys and recorded video chats between grandparents, their new grandchild, and the child’s parent. For more information, please email and one of our researchers will contact you.

This project is being done in collaboration with Dr. Gabrielle Strouse from the University of South Dakota and Dr. Lauren Myers from Lafayette College.

To take part in this study, participants must reside in the United States or Canada.
