The research focus of the Taiwanese context is on parenting within the families.


Compared to many other countries, Taiwan is geographically very close to China, and had recorded its first COVID-19 case early on (21st January 2020), but has contained the outbreak relatively well since the first case. Moreover, the country has never entered lockdown phase due to various proactive measures initiated by the government. However, even without full lockdown, these preventative measures also can take a toll on the families in a long run. We want to know what’s happening in the Taiwanese households, how parents with school-aged children are coping with preventative and social distancing measures, and the impact they are having on day-to-day life and future planning. We are using both quantitative and qualitative approaches to better unpack the pandemic’s ongoing and lasting impacts in Taiwan.
