  • I would have to see the study & make sure whatever they did with my child I would agree with...
    For example if the study was about tv time, I wouldnt allow them to have my child watch TV for hours every day... Id rather be on the side of the study were the child watched NO Tv...
    Make since? ;)

  • Yes, depending on the study. I would have issues with things like vaccine or medical trials & tests. But things like lotion, food or game tests, sure...

  • hm, nothing medical. But probably otherwise.

  • Sure, we've done educational studies and developmental studies (both girls grew up in an area with high lead levels, but had no results from it).
