Maybe there’s some money in it for you





I received an email from a graduate student (Alana) who found Ms. Cheevious and wanted my help with her dissertation.

Alana, you had me at “found Ms. Cheevious.”

Alana needs to collect and analyze data about the communication between single (divorced) parents and their small children after the divorce. Let’s help Alana out, shall we?

Here’s the deal:  You have to meet some criteria. If you do, and you take her little online survey, you can win $50 BUCKS for participating. Not bad, eh? Help a college student = maybe win some money.

If you do not meet the criteria, you may know someone who does. So PASS IT ON.

Here are the criteria:

1) You must be a divorced single mom or dad – divorced within the last 3-5 years. (Sorry… you can’t be just a regular ole single parent, no. You have to have gone through hell — I mean divorce). 

2) You must be at least 18 years of age. (I always say I had my first kid at 6 years old… that it was in all of the tabloids. So if that’s your story, and you aren’t lying… well you have other issues, but you don’t qualify).

3) You must be fluent in English. (No hablamos Espanol).

4) Your kids are between 2-5 years old. (You grannies with grownups, it doesn’t countm even though you probably need the money just as much… next time perhaps). 

5) A child is attending a full or part-time preschool program. (Those of you lucky enough to stay at home and/or homeschool your kids, well the way this deal works, you don’t qualify… and you know… I say “FINALLY – something for working, single parents!”)

If you meet all of the criteria above, go to If you don’t please pass this on to everyone you know!

Share it on FACEBOOK with this status update:

Blog content copyright 2013, LISA JEY DAVIS a.k.a. Ms. Cheevious.

Ms. Cheevious is the alter-ego of Lisa Jey Davis (former publicist, and television talent manager, current award-winning writer & author, & health and fitness pro). Though Ms. Cheevious has become known for humor via the blog and social media, offering a lighter and brighter look at life… the blog was originally a precursor to Lisa Jey's long overdue book "Ms. Cheevious in Hollywood" which offers a fabulous, funny peek into what really goes on behind the scenes in Hollywood… a Hollywood with Lisa Jey and her funny “serendipities” in it. Think Lucille Ball meets Chelsea Handler meets the girl next door (with a little chocolate and vodka). It depicts with hilarity the innocent mistakes Lisa Jey made when launched back into the big, bad single jungle, as an unassuming single-mother in the City of Angels. It’s also about the beautiful, interesting life she led while her loving, incredible sons kept her grounded and sane amid fantastic events, new friends, parties and field trips. It also shows the turmoil and heartbreak that comes with dating and single mom life. All blog content © 2015 Ms. Cheevious aka Lisa Jey Davis
