International Parenting Survey – Canada (IPS-C)

Dear Island Parents,

Your roles as caregivers, protectors, and encouragers for your children make for one of the most rewarding, yet challenging jobs ever. At different times and in different ways, parents may need support – but unfortunately, the support some parents need may not be available in the form that makes the most sense and works best for them.

The International Parenting Survey – Canada (IPS-C) is looking into this issue.  The survey is a project which has the potential to enhance services for local parents of children from 2-12 years of age.  The on-line survey will ask you questions about your child’s behavior, how you manage your child’s behavior, the supports that are available to you as parents, and your preferences for how to get support in parenting. In families where two parents are living, we would welcome each parent to complete the survey.

We will develop a local, P.E.I., report on parents’ responses. We will share this report with local policy and practice decision makers.

A few minutes of your time to respond to this survey will be greatly appreciated!

To take part in the survey, visit www.ips-canada.net.

If you have any questions, please contact Elena Buliga (ebuliga@upei.ca) or Dr. Philip Smith (smithp@upei.ca).

Sincerely,

Elena Buliga                                                                                                        Dr. Philip Smith
