    Hello Everyone,

    First, if you are among the 86 people who completed the Adult Outcomes Survey, I want to sincerely thank you. I really appreciate your time because I do :smile: and I also know that it was an exceptionally long survey.

    The time has come to close the survey, but what happened with the original survey is when I posted an announcement similar to this one, I started getting PMs to "Please wait one more day...." and I did.

    I do not know if that will happen this time, but about 125 people started the survey and 86 finished it. If you were one of those "starters" PLEASE take the survey. I regret to tell you that you will not be able to resume because I believe that function only works for about a week. However, if you want to try that, please remember to use the same computer.

    I plan to close the survey at midnight on Friday, so if you have time, and have not yet completed it, PLEASE try to help Mary and me get to the 100 people we need.

    The Adult Outcomes Survey

    Thank you,

    Thank you, Martie, for all the hard work you & your team have put into this.
    I truly hope that more people opt in to participate in this as it is one way to pay back this community that gives so much to so many. It's also a way to pay it forward by helping our children and families to be better understood.
    Studies like this tend to strip away the generalizations and fallacies that follow each of as parents of difficult children.
    Please take the survey if you are eligible and have not already done so. Or, please consider forwarding the link to other parents of adult difficult children.

    I am hoping there is a newbie reading this! If you have an adult difficult child please fill out this survey. The research can help future difficult children become successful adults!

    Martie, thank you for your dedication and commitment to helping difficult children all over the world. I hope you get to use the survey responses. I am still wishing for the 100 responses that you need.
    :future: We need a 'crossing fingers' emoticon.
    For now I will settle for putting a spell on all the warriors moms with adult difficult children that have not responded yet.

    I hope your spell works, I'll add my version of the funky chicken for mystical emphasis.

    If you are eligible and haven't yet completed a survey it would be greatly appreciated if you could take the time today to complete one.

    Thank you everyone.

    I closed the survey at noon CST on Saturday with 98 respondents and brought the data into SPSS (statistical program.)

    We shall see what the data tells us but please be patient. Data CLEANING, let alone analysis takes a while. As with the original survey, I will provide a nontechnical report to the membership when the analysis is done.

    Thanks to all of you for supporting research on "our" kids all of whom do eventually become adults.
