Title :Impact of the stress among single mother in college in the UK1.1 Formulate and record possible research project outline specificationsAimThe major aim of present investigation is to assess the impact of the stress among singlemother in college in the UKObjectivesThe research objectives of this investigation are as follows:To assess the factors that lead to stress among single mother studentsTo explore the impact of stress among single mother college students in the UKTo advice single-mother students that can help in reducing stressResearch methodologyResearch methodology is the most crucial part of an investigation that presents the toolsand methods that is used to reach the objectives of an investigation(Mitchell and Huysamen,2005).The points below represent the research methodology that is going to be used for thisproposed investigation.Research philosophy:In respect with the present topic, interpretivism researchphilosophy will be more suitable as the topic requires an in-depth investigation into the key area.The philosophy is the ways that influences the mind set of researcher.

The study concluded that stress and social support accounted for 40 percent ofthe relation between single parent status and depression (Cairney and et.al., 2003). Meadows‐4
Oliver and et.al., 2007 carried out a study on stress sources as well as support for homelessteenage mothers. The study concluded that homeless teenage mothers were present in high stressgroup. The study further recommended that there can be a use of School-based programs so asto benefit HTMs. These programs can provide support as well as help in continuing with theireducation (Meadows‐Oliver and et.al., 2007).As per the view point ofSantayana and et.al. (2014)there are many of the factors whichlead to the stress among single mother. Sometimes the domestic violence happening with them athome leads to the stress. It is because the lower section of the society has less awareness aboutthe equality laws and they continuously keep on increasing the violence on them.Richardsonand Rothstein (2008)further stated that poor education is also one of the factor which can causethe stress among the single mother. They are unable to recognize their position in the society.Moreover, according toEvans and et.al. (2007)the main factor is the poverty which create thestress among the single mother as they get depressed on how to carry out the expense of a childon her own.Montes and Halterman (2007)examined the impacts of stress among the single mother isthat excessive stress leads to the depression on the minds of female which can be harmful fortheir future life. Further, self-confidence among them get lost due to which mothers does not getready to face the consequences of the society.
