Thank you so much for filling out this survey. I’m a new mom of a 1 year old and for the last year, I’ve been learning about what challenges come along with being a mom (especially a new one) and a developer (a field that i’m also newish to). As I talk to more and more parents, I've found trends emerge, so I’m trying to collect as many survey results from parents with children of all ages to address some of these challenges and come up with possible solutions/recommendations. If you have a chance please answer the questions below. I know you probably don’t have a lot of time so don’t worry about full sentences or if you don’t have time to answer all the questions.
