Thanks for supporting Matthew! And good questions too! We originally planned to only recruit working mothers because we try to have a homogeneous sample in terms of time spent with their children, sources of daily stress, etc. But now since we are having a hard time reaching our recruitment goal, we have opened up to all moms! - Maybe more variables for us to control for at the analytical stage. =)
