Working/Student Moms: I want your opinions on motherhood & communication!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello, my name is Kelly and I am a mother of two who recently joined the Mothering community--thank you for welcoming me!  I am also a Ph.D. student in Communication Studies at WVU.  I am currently working on my dissertation in which I’m investigating mothers’ perceptions of, attitudes toward, and communication with other mothers—particularly between SAH and W moms.  So, that is why I’m announcing my study on this forum and I really hope you’ll consider participating.

 

If you are interested in participating, first let me say: THANK YOU!  Next, I want to be sure you qualify based on Institutional Review Board (IRB) ethical research guidelines.  To qualify for participation you must: (a) be female, (b) be over 18 years old, and (c) have at least one child who is 18 years old or younger.  So, essentially, I’m looking for adult mothers who have “younger” children living at home with them (i.e., NOT mothers with adult children who have not moved away for college, job, or relationship opportunities).  If you don’t personally qualify, but know someone who does, I would be so grateful if you could pass this information along to them.

 

Participation involves completing a 20-minute online survey at this link: www.surveymonkey.com/s/momgroupsonline.   I know you’re all extremely busy and 20-minutes of free time is likely very difficult to find.  So to entice you to participate, I will be entering all completed surveys into a drawing for a $50 retailer gift card (e.g., Wal-mart, Giant Eagle).

 

If you would like to help me out, I would GREATLY appreciate your valuable insights.  Without moms like you telling me about your unique experiences and opinions, I would not be able to conduct [what I consider very important and progressive] research on motherhood and communication!   So, I am tremendously grateful for any information you are willing to provide. 

 

If you have any questions about this study, please don’t hesitate to contact me at kodenwel@mix.wvu.eduThank you so much!

Done, you may want to add Professional/Technical Professional/Engineer to your profession choices, I made a note in the note area at the end to clarify my profession because it wasn't included. Good luck with your study!
