Hi experienced helpers :),
I need help with writing the Research Proposal Project on a topic about the children of divorce. It could be memory, attention, cognition, behavior, comparing specific CBT intervention, etc, anything related to counselling. Three parts: topic, outline, and final draft should be clearly presented (10 pages APA). The final goal is not to complete an entire research study, but to construct a brief, yet solid and well researched PROPOSAL for a study describing all the various parts, including the references you will use to establish the background for the study - all of which are always the first stages in an actual study.
I am willing to consider price adjustment with your proposal ideas. I had one good and one poor experience with this cite.
I really need professional help.
Thank you very much!

Greetings! My name is Dr. Underwood, and I will be your assisting you today! This is a great research proposal! I will reinforce that proposals is not an actual study as your assignment states, but instead a "plan" for what you plan to examine as if you're going to conduct a study :) For starters, it's important that you have a specific focus for which you like to examine in your paper. For example, children of divorcees often experience a variety of emotions which is likely to impact their overall well-being. You need to think about a question or questions you'd like to investigate. In terms of variables, the independent variable in this case is divorce and the dependent variable is the outcome of divorce in children. Your challenge at this point is narrowing your ...

If a husband gets laid off from work, how does this affect his role in assisting with routine housework?
A) He increases his share of the duties.
B) He does about the same amount of housework.
C) He decreases his share of the housework.
D) He ignores his share of the housework

C.) This is probably more true in the short run rather than long term. The immediate impact of being unemployed is shame, loss of status and despair. Under these circumstances most men will withdraw and not focus on work on the house that needs to be done. If the couple has a good relationship and long term plan about how to ride out the financial storm, the husband will more than likely increase his share of the duties (A)

What is the main difference between cohabitation and marriage?
A) The age at which people cohabitate usually ends at around 30.
B) Cohabitation is never permanent whereas most marriages are.
C) There is a greater degree of financial and emotional commitment in marriage.
D) Marriage is a more fragile and more likely to end in separation.

Okay this is something of a toss-up depending on the perspective of your teacher and his/her agenda. The statistics show that C is definitely true especially if you focus on the word commitment which means a devotion or unconditional bond. Cohabitation is typically entered with the idea that "I can get out if this doesn't work the way I want it to" which is the opposite of commitment. http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/11/the_differences_between_marria.html
The only part of this question that makes it questionable is the use of the word NEVER in B). Statistics show that most cohabitations last less than 29 months with many ending after only a few months or even weeks. However, we know that the word NEVER can be a trick in multiple choice questions. I'm sure we could find a few examples of permanent cohabitation and that would make C) correct.
