Bill, I have never encountered someone who was a PPM paticipant.  If you 
don't mind, here are a few question for you.

-Did you (as the dad) have to "get after" your daughter to wear it?

-Did you (as the dad) ever carry it for a day when she left it behind?

-Did you (as the dad) ever take it and shake it around to give the 
impression that she was wearing it?

-Why did your time as a PPM participant end?  Was it your doing...or 
Arbitron's doing?  Would you have participated longer?

-As a PPM family, during your time as a participant, what is the total 
amount of reward compensation (i.e.$$$) that you received?

Was the compensation worth the hassle?  Did you do continue to participate 
for the monetary compensation....or the thought that you were influencing 
radio programming?
