Department of Child Development and Family Studies seeks youngsters, their mothers for study

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Researchers in the Department of Child Development and Family Studies are recruiting families with children from 3.5 to 4 years old for a study on child-mother relationships and children’s behavior with peers and other adults.

The primary investigators are Germán Posada, associate professor, and Ting Lu, doctoral student researcher.

Participation in the study includes two contacts 1.5 years apart, when children are 3.5 and 5 years of age. In each contact year, child- mother dyads will participate in one home visit and two playground visits. Also, teachers and mothers will answer questionnaires about child behavior in the preschool setting.

Participating families will receive a monetary gift after each visit as a token of appreciation for their time. At the end of each contact year, children will also receive a book.

For more information, please contact Ting Lu at or 765-430-2125, or Germán Posada at or 765-49-41029.
