This proposed research aims to examine the association with parental strain on children who are raised by a single parent rather than a couple. Unmarried parent children, particularly those raised by only one parent, will be asked to complete a survey on their childhood and the obstacles they encounter due to their status. A series of survey data, rating scales, liking scales, and open-ended questionnaires will be used to gather data. Single-parented children are projected to be more challenging to raise than those raised by parents in a two-parent households. The results will be used to establish whether or not raising a child as a single parent is more complex or fraught with difficulties and whether it impacts the child’s upbringing and day-to-day activities. The more difficult it is for single parents to look after their children, the more likely they are to suffer negative consequences.
