I am pursuing PhD research from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai (India). My research topic is Prevalence and Predictors of Psychological Distress among Street Children in Mumbai. In this case, street children are staying without any adult supervision. If I want to study them, so whom should I ask for consent as street children are minor.
Hello, I am writing a research proposal titled, Relationship between recognition of unhealthy food brands, among children, and their BMI. I was wondering what are the main ethical concerns regarding this type of research? I am aware parental consent would have to be obtained. But mainly focusing on the ethical concerns of measuring a child's BMI; if the child is willing to participate and the results are anonymous Thank you
Please help me get more insight about how to make children particularly (age 5-8) understand a research project and their participation in it.
