Gathering stories from parents or carers

Hi there

Has your child just left home for the first time?   Have they gone to University or College?  Maybe they took their first job and stepped out to full independence? 

This research gathers parents' experience of their child leaving home for the first time (to go to University/College, or maybe a first job).  

You may have had a range of emotions, some new! And then there's the practical side of things - finance, bank accounts, leases, homewares...etc.
Thank you for taking time to complete this anonymous survey  to share your  unique experience, in as much detail as you like.

More Info
Many find comfort and joy in sharing a common experience. Anonymous stories gathered here will support a blog, articles and a book about parents' experiences when their child leaves home.  Research is conducted by a parent and professional researcher and writer.  
Reminder: This research is anonymous -  no need real names or any personal contact details.    Thanks again for your participation.
