The researchers behind this study want to find out more about how family dynamics affect the lives of children and adolescents. By participating in this study, you help us find out how we can help children and adolescents who are experiencing a difficult time.


We are particularly interested in investigating:

  • How children and parents can get better help when families are going through a tough time
  • How children can be active contributors in matters that concern them
  • Children’s well-being when the parents live apart

To gain this knowledge, we need to learn about what makes children and adolescents are faring well in their family, and what they find difficult. We need to learn both from those whose parents live together, and from those whose parents live apart.

What does it involve to participate?

In total, more than 1000 children and adolescents participate in this study. Those below 12 years of age participate by being interviewed, while those 12 or older participate by responding to a questionnaire on their mobile phone or tablet. Around 18 months after you first participated, you will be invited to participate once more.

It is voluntary to participate and you can withdraw at any time if you no longer want to be part of the study. You can also skip questions you do not want to answer.

What questions do we ask?

You will be asked questions about how you are doing as a family, about your feelings, how you feel at school and in your spare-time, and about your relationship to each of your parents.
