1. Introduction

This survey will ask a few brief questions about whether you have ever been excluded from a gathering of parents and children.

To be eligible for this survey, you must be a self-identified male and regularly responsible (as father, uncle, guardian, etc.) for at least one child. This survey is completely anonymous; we have no way to connect you with your answers.

It is being conducted by Jeremy Adam Smith, author of The Daddy Shift: www.jeremyadamsmith.com. If you have any questions or wish to receive a report on the results, please send Smith a note at jeremyadamsmith (at) mac.com.

The survey will take five to ten minutes.
