Help for a psychology question

Hi. My name is Sarah and I'm in college in New York. I am currently taking a class on Developmental Psychology in which we were asked to interview 4 parents (2 mothers and 2 fathers) who have children over the age of 18. Instead of taking the traditional route and interviewing relatives, I decided to ask fellow LJers these questions about their experiences as a parent.

If you have at least 1 child over the age of 18 and you would like to help me, please
These are the questions:
1) What was the most surprising thing for you when you became a parent for the first time? How do you mean?
2) What has been a joyful or peak-experience for you as a parent? What made it so wonderful?
3) What was something you found really stressful as a parent?
4) Looking back on your parenthood experience to date, is there anything you would do differently now if you could “do it over”? If so, what would you do differently, and why?

You can answer the questions as a comment here (all comments will be screened) or e-mail me the answers at I may not end up using all the answers, because I only need to interview 4 people, and I have posted this in many place, but I am personally interested in this, so even if I don't use your answers, I would still love to hear them. Thank you for your help!


If this post is not allowed, my sincerest apologies, and please delete it.
