Check Out New Parent-KId Activities From Making Caring Common
Many parents and caregivers are spending more time with their kids these days. Wouldn’t it be nice to try a new family activity and receive a gift card while you’re at it?
Our friends at Harvard’s Making Caring Common are here for you! They are looking for parents and caregivers of kids ages 4-10 to join their parenting research project by Monday, July 6.
In 2018, I was invited to join the Parenting Advisory Board for Making Caring Common. Their team was in the early stages of developing new research-based activities for parents and caregivers, and they were hoping to learn from experts in social and emotional learning, early childhood development, and parenting. The goal was to create simple, fun, connecting activities for parents to use that could promote three areas research confirms are essential to children’s success including empathy, gratitude, and diligence. Since then, Making Caring Common has been developing and testing its activities, and now they are ready to hear from you!
I hope you’ll consider participating in the research and sharing your candid feedback with the Making Caring Common team. Participation involves one intake survey (link provided below) – which will include the list of activities to choose one from – and a weekly feedback survey for a month. You’ll get $5 per feedback survey completed, and an extra $20 if you do all four! MCC will also interview some parents, and give an additional $10. You just need to have one child between the ages of 4 and 10 to do the activity of your choosing with – ideally every week, for four weeks!
