Parent Information Sheet
My name is Urooj Khan and I am an MSc Applied Psychology student at the University of Manchester supervised by Dr Alison Wearden. This study has been designed in order to assess predictors of self-esteem in children and adolescents with diabetes. Learning about self-esteem in children with diabetes may be helpful in the future when developing intervention programs for increasing self-esteem in such children.
Your child will be asked to answer a few brief general information questions followed by four questionnaires. The questionnaires assess self-esteem, knowledge of diabetes, how well your child feels s/he can deal with diabetes and how diabetes is perceived. The questionnaires are not likely to be difficult to complete. Overall, it should take between 20 and 35 minutes to complete the questionnaires (refer to example questions,).
Your child's participation in this study is voluntary. If at anytime they wish to discontinue, they may do so without penalty. Their answers are anonymous. They will not have to state your name. However, once your child has submitted the completed questionnaire, it cannot be retrieved.
Should completing this questionnaire raise any concerns for you or your child, please don't hesitate to contact me on Urooj.Khan@postgrad.manchester.ac.uk or my supervisor on firstname.lastname@example.org.
