This inventory assesses parents’ attitudes about child rearing and education. Each of 30 statements is rated on a 4-point scale (1 = strongly disagree, 4 = strongly agree); 8 items reflect progressive attitudes (e.g., Children have a right to their own point of view and should be allowed to express it), and 22 items reflect authoritarian and conformist attitudes (e.g., The most important thing to teach children is absolute obedience to their parents).
