Surveys are a good way to get information and feedbacks without exposing the audience. To get honest responses, the audience has to be convinced that their feedbacks will be anonymous. I approached parents to know about their thoughts regarding their children's daily lives, how do they manage when situations go out of control, how careful are they with their words when they loose patience. Feedbacks were interesting and helpful to further dig into the topic more deeply.
After an informal talk with parents and children separately, I created this mind map to show a visual form of the discussion.
Mind map for worry in teenagers, how, why, what are the main questions to be asked. These questions lead to different answers and each answer filters to another answer. It is continuous and dealing with all these answers helps.
The good or bad feeling is obviously created by the mind. So the mind map of how a teenagers mind work gives a clear picture about the worries they have, how and why.
Some of the possible solutions to help children with worries or encourage them to speak out without hesitation. This mind map will help both parents and children equally to understand the reasons and have a clear two way communication.
Mind maps helped in showing the structure of the topic with many sub levels which inter connected with each other. Drawing mind maps with all the words that came in mind related to the topic, helped in highlighting new levels or connections that needed to be researched.
