Welcome and thank you for your interest in participating in this survey.
We are a student team from the Diploma in Psychology Studies at Temasek Polytechnic, conducting this research for our project. In collaboration with the Media Literacy Council (MLC), we are interested to understand how parents with young children aged 8 to 12 years old regulate their child’s digital involvement (i.e., digital devices usage, digital media content consumption, and engagement with different types of digital platforms).
This survey would take approximately 15 - 20 minutes to complete and is comprised of six different sections. You will be asked about your experiences as a parent in regulating your child’s digital involvement, and about your child’s engagement and behaviours associated with their usage and interaction with these digital devices and platforms.
There is minimal risk involved in participating in this study. You will receive a $10 NTUC voucher as a token of our appreciation upon the completion of this survey (i.e., instructions for receiving the voucher will be given upon completion of the survey). This study is strictly voluntary, and you can withdraw from it at any point. However, do note that you will not receive the $10 NTUC voucher if you do not complete the survey.
Please be assured that your responses provided will be kept strictly anonymous and will not be shared with anyone outside the research team. When we present the survey's findings, it will be presented in terms of overall statistics (e.g., averages), and no individual’s data will be presented.
Your responses are important in helping us understand the approaches that parents take towards their child’s digital involvement, and the possible effects of these approaches on the child. The findings will help MLC formulate the content of the outreach programs that aims to educate parents on how to regulate their child’s digital involvement.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to approach any of the research team for further assistance, or contact our supervisor, Dr Tan Wah Pheow, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
