AM I ELIGIBLE?

To participate in this project we require adolescents and two parents to complete some surveys. If you answer 'YES' to all relevant criteria below, you are eligible for participation in the study!

  • The following three family members are happy to participate:

    • Adolescent: aged 12-16 years.

    • The primary male caregiver of the adolescent (biological, adoptive or step-parent, who has known the child for at least 3 years and/or spends at least 2 days per fortnight with them).

    • The primary female caregiver of the adolescent (biological, adoptive or step-parent, who has known the child for at least 3 years and/or spends at least 2 days per fortnight with them).

  • Fluent in written and spoken English.

  • Live in Australia or New Zealand.

  • Access to the internet and an electronic device (phone, tablet or computer).

Please note: We understand that families can be made up of a number of different parent and child variations; including same sex parents, grandparent or other family member carers, and more. For the purpose of our research, we wish to look at the role of male and female parents on adolescent development. However, we acknowledge that families come in many wonderful and important shapes and sizes.
