Couple disagreement, forgiveness, parenting and preschoolers’ social-emotional development
Research is being conducted to better understand how parents support their young (age 4-5) children in developing good social-emotional skills. The focus of the study is on parents' interactions with their child and with each other. The research involves parents completing an online survey containing questions about parenting, couple disagreements, reconciliation and forgiveness.
This research forms part of the Doctorate in Psychology degree at Griffith University, School of Applied Psychology, Gold Coast
Type of volunteers needed
• Parents with a 4-5 year old child
• Parents can be living together or apart. When children have two parents in the home, both parents are asked to complete the questionnaire.
What would I be asked to do? How much time would it take?
• You will complete an anonymous survey online (via the Internet).
• The survey may take up to 20 minutes.
• Some of the questions about parental disagreements address some sensitive issues, such as loud arguments.
• Parents will also be provided with the option to consent for the researcher to contact the teacher at their child’s childcare centre or school. Teachers will be asked to complete a 5-minute report on the child’s positive behaviour and interpersonal skills with other children.
What’s in it for me?
• The information obtained will increase knowledge of how children develop socially and emotionally during the preschool years.
• A FREE children’s book will be provided to families in appreciation for their time.
• Group results will be made available to parents.
How can I volunteer or find out more?

If your child is turning 4 this year feel free to fill out the quesionnaire now, and if your chose to be a part of the childcare/ daycare centre assessment part of the study, I won't contact them until they turn 4 years old eg September.
Your FREE book will still be sent out after you complete the parent questionnaire online.
Would be great if both parents could complete the online questionnaire, but if only one parent is able to, that's ok too!
