The Mother Load: The Double Shift of Women

I am a Grade 12 student currently attending Richview Collegiate Institute in Toronto and am preparing a research project for my Family Studies class. I am conducting a brief survey of married couples with children in order to study the effects of working parents in a family relationship. Your feedback in completing this survey would be most appreciated (you ccan respond by e-mailing your answers to sp_2786@yahoo.ca, or posting them here). Your answers will be kept strictly confidential and will be used for research purposes only. If you are interested in the results, I would be more than happy to give you a copy. Thank you very much for your time and assistance.
Sincerely,
Stephanie
