Relationships Australia's quick survey

Relationships Australia offers a wide range of relationship support services across Australia. The survey questions are based on issues raised by people who use our services, or are otherwise likely to be of interest to them.

We are putting these questions to you so that:

  • We can get a better understanding of your views; and
  • You can get a sense of what other people think about an issue.


This survey collects information on parents' experiences of raising their children. If you feel distressed or concerned as a result of this survey, please contact Lifeline 13 11 14.

Should you require counselling or support with parenting issues, please contact Relationships Australia: 1300 364 277. For specialist support for people affected by forced adoption contact the Forced Adoption Support Services: Phone 1800 21 03 13.

Q3: Is it/was it difficult to set limits and deal with problem behaviour?
