This may not be an issue for you, but when I had to do research papers as a mama, I actually looked to see what I could find the most info on, and THEN narrow down my topic. In my pre-mama days I would go with what was most interesting, but that changed once time was extremely limited! For example, while there may be a lot written on the mommy wars, how much can you actually find on that in journals vs. articles in a magazine. I don't know-- I'm just giving that as an example.
