Triple P Parenting Scale

At one time or another, all children misbehave or do things that could be harmful, that are ‘wrong’, or that parents don’t like. Examples include hitting someone, whining, throwing food, forgetting homework, not picking up toys, lying, having a tantrum, refusing to go to bed, wanting a cookie before dinner, running into the street, arguing back, coming home late.

Parents have many different ways or styles of dealing with these types of problems.

Below are items that describe some styles of parenting. For each item, choose the number that best describes your style of parenting during the past 2 months with your child.
