Information for Parents

Below, please find information about ongoing studies in the lab:


Why do we sometimes decide not to help others? 
In this new research study, we are interested to learn how kids/teens think about and decide whether to help others or not, and how parents respond to their children’s decisions about helping or not helping others.
We are seeking families with children between the ages of 8-9, and 13-14 years to participate with their parent. In two separate sessions, we will meet with both parents and kids/teens via Zoom to interview them and to complete some tasks. Parents can complete the questionnaire online.
Families will received 25$ Amazon e-gift card in appreciation for their time.
