Hi All,

My name is Hugh, I am a researcher from Curtin University in Perth. We are currently conducting research on the challenges faced by new parents as they transition into life as a parent. We are running a long-term study that will look at how parents learn to balance parenting with other life goals.

We are looking for parents from all over Australia with a child who is between 6-24 months to take part. The study will require our participants to fill in regular surveys to let us know how they are managing parenting alongside the other parts of daily life and is run entirely online using a built-for-purpose smartphone app.

At the conclusion of the project we will work with community organisations that cater to new parents, like child-parent centres, playgroups and daycares, in order to make sure that the outcomes of the research are delivered directly back to parents.

If you would like more information on the project or you would like to participate, please visit our website: https://www.thestarproject.net/participate.html

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. It is much appreciated.
