Researchers at the University of British Columbia are getting in on Families in the New Millenium, a research project focusing on challenges being faced by families with children in grades 5 to 9, and they have the full support of TriCities Middle Childhood Matters.
Sound familiar? That’s because Simon Fraser University is participating in the same research and conducted the survey of TriCities families last fall. If you wanted an opportunity to speak out about life as the parent of a child or children in this age group, and missed the chance last fall — perhaps because family life is so busy and demanding — this is your chance to make your voice heard. The findings of this study will help the TriCities and other communities plan how they can best serve local families.
You can participate in the 10-minute survey by clicking on Survey Monkey. Once completed, you can enter a draw for $150.00 cash, to be drawn by March 31. You may also choose to complete an in-depth interview and questionnaire, or simply pass the information on to other parents who might be interested in sharing the joys and struggles of their family life.
