Young Australian mothers perceptions of life and learning.
The project will explore individual perceptions, feelings and behaviour of young mothers (<25 years of age) with respect to salient life experiences. Of particular interest is the perspective of young mothers with respect to the perceived opportunities for learning either through traditional formal education or informal education and the importance of these for well-being. An exploration of qualitative data will identify, describe and compare thematic patterns between mothers of different ages, generations and socioeconomic indicators.
