Parenting practices, bilingualism and children's everyday behaviour

03 May 2019

This in an online study investigating the association between children’s everyday behaviours (e.g. playing with other children focusing on tasks, willing to share toys or school resources with their peers) and parenting behaviours, and whether these differ between children who speak one and those who speak more than one language.


  • 1) you have a child aged between 5-11 years,
  • 2) your child speaks one or more than one language(s),
  • 3) your child is monolingual, they are a native English speaker,
  • 4) he/she has lived in the UK for at least five years, and is currently attending a primary school in UK.
  • If your child has a diagnosed developmental condition (e.g. autism or ADHD), we advise that you don’t take part in this study as some of the questionnaires ask about children’s daily behaviours that we know are more challenging for children with autism and ADHD.
