The PEARL Lab at OISE is recruiting participants between the ages of 18 and 22 for a research study on the relationship between young adults and their parents, and the impact of this relationship on risk behaviours, wellness behaviours and well-being. You must be in contact with a parent for at least 10 hours a month (including text, phone, email) and be willing to have said parent participate. The study involves you filling out one baseline survey and then completing 30 days of short surveys from home, using an app that you download on your smartphone. We will ask you to do the same thing again in a year and two more times after that. Young adults are paid for the initial survey ($20) and for the 30 days of surveys (up to $60) each year and parents are paid $20 for each survey.
Individuals who are interested in participating can contact our lab by phone or email to hear more about the study.
