Construction and Validation of Scale of Parenting Style
Abdul Gafor, K.; Kurukkan, Abidha
Online Submission, Guru Journal of Behavioral and Social Sciences v2 n4 p315-323 Oct-Dec 2014
This paper describes the development and standardization of a measure of perceived parenting style. The four styles namely authoritative, authoritarian, permissive and negligent proposed by Baumrind (1971) are scaled based on a quadrant of high and low levels of parental responsiveness and control suggested by Maccoby and Martin (1983). The items are constructed on socio-cultural and educational circumstances of adolescent students in Kerala, India. Hence, the tool will be largely suitable for scaling the four parenting styles among south Asian adolescent students. The tool has good criterion related validity and test-retest reliability.
