We are looking for parents, with their child, to take part in an interesting research about how sport and play fit into children and families lives.
The research will be in 2 stages: 1st stage will be an online blog to complete for 7 days. Tasks will be posted and will include capturing conversations and physical activity with children in film and pictures. This will include both parents and children taking part trying a new sport/physical activity of their choosing during the 7 days and capturing their experiences using their phone. Primary school aged children will be required to collect clues about activities that they and their families do (not online). Secondary school aged children will be required to complete an online blog individually. The online blog will take up to 15 minutes per day.
The 2nd stage will require you to take part in an in-home session for 90 minutes with your child.
YOU MUST BE AVAILABLE FOR BOTH STAGES OF THIS RESEARCH.
