Good evening everyone:)
My name is Victoria Elliott and I am a university student from Essex, England. I am currently in my final year of completing an 'Early Years Education' bachelors degree and require your support so that I can gather a variety of opinions on the issues I have been studying. I am trying to examine the effects that the media can have on parent's development of fears for their children's safety, such as the wording of newspapers when discussing child abuse/ abduction incidents which cause deep, emotional reactions. I wish to discover if such fears should be relevant to our lives, or if in fact, society is causing us to spend many sleepless nights worrying that our children are at risk every time they leave our sight. I would also love to learn about the most significant fears that parents face when they are not able to supervise their children, and want to find out just how common, or uncommon, it is for these fears to become a reality.
I would greatly appreciate it if a few mothers could please spare me 5 minutes of their time, and complete a questionnaire which will help me to achieve the high grade I aspire for.
All responses will be anonymous, no personal information will be requested, and if anybody is uncomfortable with the questions provided they can withdraw from the study at any point. Furthermore, you will be able to request your information back, and I can then assure you that it will no longer be used for my research.
Thank-you kindly, in advance.
I look forward to your feedback, and will post my questionnaire shortly.
