The Research Team
The Stepfamily Foundation of Alberta
contacting you about a research study by the
Stepfamily Foundation of Alberta. Its
goals are: a) to identify Stepparenting styles that develop naturally
in stepfamilies, b) to determine which of these styles are the most effective,
and c) to figure out how to improve the less effective ones. While stepparents
are the primary focus of this study, comparative information from biological,
adoptive and foster parents is needed as well.
If you can
spare a few minutes to assist with this research, you could make an important
(anonymously) completing the questionnaire (that's at
the heart of the study) yourself,
encouraging your partner to complete the questionnaire,
forwarding this message to all of the parents on your email
list, to invite them to do the same.
It takes about 30 minutes to answer the questionnaire. The first 500 people completing it will receive a prepublication copy of Tools to Master Four Essential Stepfamily Tasks. It details:
central tasks that every stepfamily must confront and master in order to
a step-by-step recipe for getting the job done.
The reviews on this information are clear: It is absolutely essential information for any stepfamily that is struggling.
