Digby, an important member of our team, shares his view of lockdown.

Results from my ‘Living in Lockdown’ research

I’ve been working hard on the findings this week.

My questionnaire

Hello, well we are nearly in Week 9 of lockdown, and time seems to be going very quickly. I thought it might be only dogs that are feeling that, but the FK&Y team thought so also when we had our Teams catch-up this morning. They are getting super-fit, cycling, running, yoga, walking. So what have I been doing? Well I’ve written this questionnaire, with the help of some of my young human friends (thank you…

The not-such good things about lockdown

Last week I wrote about the good things during lockdown. This week I’ve been thinking about the not-such-good things, and I have to admit that it isn’t all good. First, I miss the Five Guys we have at work on a Friday. I don’t have the bun, just the burger, no chips. And I miss the humans I work with – George wrote his thesis on dog behaviour and sometimes takes me for a walk,…

Living in Lockdown

At FK&Y we’re currently talking to children and young people about how they are coping with the unprecedented situation that we all find ourselves in.

Family Kids & Youth – what we are doing during Coronavirus lockdown

We are continuing to carry out our UK and international research with children, teens and parents but have switched all this online and to our apps. Our qualitative research is filmed and our mini groups, depth interviews and focus groups are proving to be a great success. Children and young people are totally at home speaking online and are extremely vocal, even on the most sensitive of topics. Parents are appreciating the ‘group effect’ of online video conferencing.

Our resourceful team at FK&Y has been home-based since Monday 16 March and our regular catch-ups on Microsoft Teams ensure we all know what each other is doing! We’d like to thank our clients, our suppliers and of course our research participants for being so encouraging and so supportive.

We have compiled lists of organisations that offer help on home-schooling, child behaviour, and anxiety and mental health. Please contact me if you wish to receive this list.

Wishing all our clients, colleagues and friends our very best wishes! Dr Barbie.
