Development of a co-parenting emotion scale
You are invited to participate in an online survey. This study is being conducted as part of a PhD project that aims to examine how children’s caregivers relate to each other as parents.
 
We are seeking adults who are currently raising children (aged 1 – 18 years old) together. You will be asked to answer questions about the individual with whom you primarily raise your children. This individual does not have to be the child’s biological parent, and does not need to live with you or the child. Once the questionnaire is completed, you will be asked to forward the survey URL link and a uniquely generated code (explained at the start of the survey) onto the other parent/caregiver. Ideally, we ask that both parents/caregivers complete the online questionnaire; however, responses from only one parent/caregiver are still valuable.

Your participation in this project will involve providing basic demographic information (e.g., age, gender, relationship status, and ethnicity) and responding to questions about how you and your child’s/children’s other caregiver work together to raise your child. Additional items will ask about parenting stress and communication. Participants who are currently in a romantic relationship with their child’s other parent/caregiver will also be asked to respond to questions about that relationship. The survey will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete. Upon completing the survey you have the opportunity to go in the draw to win one of three $100 E-Gift cards. Just follow the link on the final page! 
 
Participation is entirely voluntary and participants are free to discontinue the survey at any point. An individual’s decision to not participate or to discontinue will not result in any consequences now or in the future. While completing this survey participants may experience feelings of mild distress or discomfort; however, we do not foresee the possible risks to be greater than those encountered during everyday life.

The responses that you provide will remain anonymous and hence cannot be identified in the reporting of the research. The researcher cannot guarantee the confidentiality or anonymity of material transferred by email or the internet. The results of the survey may be published; however, all records containing personal information will remain anonymous. The data will be kept for a minimum period of 5 years as per requirements set out by the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research and the University's policy of ownership and retention of data and the requirements of some academic journals. Subject to receiving ethics approval, this data may potentially be used for future research projects and/or databases.

If you have any questions/concerns regarding this survey you can email Christina Ambrosi (christina.ambrosi@mymail.unisa.edu.au - PhD Candidate) or Phil Kavanagh (pkavanagh@isn.edu.au - Principal Supervisor). If you wish to receive a summary of results at the conclusion of the study please contact Christina.
