    Nobody pays me to write any of the copy on my blog, and should I ever have the good fortune that they do, I will declare it. My main employment is as the owner and principal of The Future Place consultancy. The Future Place provides two key services 1) training and services to industry and academic bodies and 2) consultancy services to companies. The details of the companies I work with are a private matter, but if I blog about any company who has paid The Future Place more than expenses recently (approx. two years) I will mention that they are a client. I hold equity in Virtual Surveys and provide consulting services to them from time to time. I am paid to run courses for a number of trade bodies and over the last few years clients have included ESOMAR, AMSRS, MRS, and MRIA.

Besides all the points you have made so crystal clear, i think form a RMX or business point of view one should not forget the following: children are highly susceptible for suggestive questioning. i believe that even if we had the chutzpah to conduct research with children, we might end up with data that is not as reliable as we hoped for. As no decent researcher should risk his/her clients money on a less than sound data basis, we should all refrain from this target group!

just my 2 cents,

philipp
