South Side Parent Focus Groups
What are your neighbors saying about raising healthy kids in the south side of Columbus?
Read the Focus Group Booklet to see comments from parents and grandparents of preschoolers living in south side neighborhoods (43205, 43206, and 43207).
This booklet contains ideas from south side parents and grandparents in their own words. The statements in italics included in this booklet were recorded during focus groups held in September 2010. The OSU Prevention Research Center conducted focus groups with 86 parents and grandparents of preschoolers who live in zip code areas 43205, 43206, and 43207. Some of the statements have been paraphrased slightly for clarity.
The PRC extends special thanks to all parents and grandparents who participated in the focus groups.
