The African American
Co-parenting Research Study
The purpose of the African American Co-parenting Research Study is to understand parenting processes and experiences among African American parents who are not married, but still working together to raise their child/children. The aim is to better understand how parents can have a healthy relationship as they help their children to grow and thrive. Focus group research will be used to capture the voices of participants living the co-parenting experience.
To qualify participants must:
- Identify as African American
- Be actively parenting their biological child who is in grades 7-12.
- Share parenting responsibility with the biological parent of their biological child in grades K-12.
- Not currently be romantically involved with the parent of this child.
Participants are asked to:
- Contribute to a virtual focus group sharing their experience regarding various issues related to co-parenting
- Allocate 1.5-2 hours to participate in a focus group with 4-6 other parents.
- Maintain the confidentiality of the other participants
One randomly selected (via raffle) participant in each group will receive a $100 gift card!
