Dear Parents,
My name is Lisa Hynes. I am a student of NUI, Galway, currently conducting my thesis project as part of the Masters in Health Psychology programme.
The topic of my thesis is ´Does parenting affect memory´. I am comparing parents of children up to 18 years old, with and without a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder to look at the potential differences in the experiences of these parents in terms of perceived stress, health and performance on a simple memory task.
If you are interested in taking part in the project please feel free to contact me through this forum or by my e-mail. My address is: l.hynes2@nuigalway.ie. You will then be asked to complete a questionnaire online, or by hand if preferred, and to do a short memory task over the phone.
Thank you!
Lisa.

Hello parents...I am a 3rd year student studying business in college.I signed up on this website to initially look for work childminding, which i found in a lovely family in balbriggan. I have been asked to conduct a business for one of my modules(as part of my final year project) with 3 other people and its under the heading " healthy eating for children". This subject is so important for many families out there and with the current economic climate I know its hard for parents to afford proper meals as well as keeping a roof over your heads. For this module we have decided to come up with a business (not realistically) that supplys children with healthy foods to their schools. We would be delivering these meals to the students in primary schools.We were thinking of running a prepay option for the term perhaps.The food would be made on our permises in balbriggan and delivered to the children for their lunch time. Our business has to be real on paper so i would like to ask any parents out there could they leave me their feedback as to what they think of our idea.Could you see yourself giving your child money to buy a healthy lunch? I would really appreciate this. Thank you so much
