Abstract

The Understanding Society COVID-19 study is a regular survey on the experiences and reactions of the UK population to the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey is an integral part of Understanding Society and researchers can link data from the COVID-19 survey to answers respondents have given in previous and future waves of the annual Understanding Society survey.The survey is funded by the ESRC and the Health Foundation. This briefing covers the questions on parent and child relationships in Wave 2 of the survey. The questions cover parents relationships with children and whether they have become better or worse since the government's 'stay at home' policy; whether parents quarrel, talk with their childnren about important things or get on each others' nerves; the reduction in hours spent in paid work to care for children and time spent on home schooling and caring for children.
