“Which of these do you usually play with?” asked our researcher, inviting the kid to come closer to have a look at the toys on display.
The kid, in the blink of an eye, picked one of the toys and fled the place.
Were we able to get hold of him thereafter? There was no chance we could!
This is often the case when we are interviewing kids for a study. They are so enchanted by just anything lying around like stones, sticks, tyres, ropes, etc. that their focus most of the time is to only run away with such things and play.
Lesson learned: We should take toys with us for kids and tell them that they will be allowed to take one home if they participate in the survey sincerely.
