Also, just for those who are curious, differentiation is a concept that describes the balancing of the need to be an individual and also that of having close relationships with others.

I took the survey- but as a heads up, you might not want to have a 'timed out' option if you want moms of babes under two to fill it out. I had to start over because I was needed for nursing!

Totally! Only I had gotten a good long way there and just gave up...I wondered though if that was sort of part of the survey, to see who actually got all the way through. Sort of a measure of how much time a new mother actually has on their hands.


It's WICKED long!

You're support is great, thank you!

Unfortunately, right now it looks like 30 minutes is the maximum, but I'm trying to work on over riding the system. It's proving more difficult than I expected, but thank you for your patience. If I can get it changed I will.

Thank you so much, ladies!! I got enough to graduate on time. I will be leaving the survey up for the next several week for anyone else who would like to participate. The more participants, the more accurate the study is. This means that I will have a higher likelihood of being able to publish it, and if it is published any findings can be used professionals working with new moms, or the new moms themselves. Keep the responses coming!
