Polyamorous Parenting Strategies: Survey Enclosed
I don't want to pry, but I am doing a research paper for my class on polyamorous families with children and parenting techniques, and their benefit to monogamous/"conventional" families and parents. I just wanted to know if you had any strategies you employ in parenting, whether for dealing with:
~stigma felt by children and adults
~partners with whom children may have bonded leaving the family
~conflict resolution with children
~coming out to children
I feel that a lot of the ways in which polyamorous parents implement communication skills they have learned in relating to each other and the world in general can related to both queer and non-queer monogamous parents, and that interaction between the two (whenever possible) can be helpful. So if you could share, that would be absolutely amazing!
(The survey has been deleted.)
Just trying to help you succeed in your academic career... Can't do your survey because I don't have any children. Good luck.
I am SO SORRY! I was not taught research methods at all and I should have looked them up in much more detail before asking.
My name is Charles Bowden and I am a student at the University of CA, Davis. This class is called University Writing Program/UWP 101, section 20, taught by Raquel Scherr, and it's essentially a composition class with a lot of freedom in writing topics. I am an undergraduate in Psychology with a Biology Emphasis, and we do use the quarter system.
All I can do, I suppose, is assure anyone who feels comfortable volunteering that all information shared will be fully confidential, ie no locations, occupations, forum names, real names, or other identifying characteristics specified as unacceptable will be given. I will not be allowing any publication of this paper--it will be peer-reviewed by my fellow students, however, and of course handed to my professor.
If there are any other questions or concerns, please please PM or publicly post to me. I am extremely sorry for presuming that people would feel comfortable giving information on such a sensitive topic without identifying information from me.
