Positive Relationship with Parents Scale for Parents

This tool was developed by Child Trends for the Templeton Foundation, as part of the Flourishing Children Project. It includes seven items designed for parents to rate their relationship with their children. Parents who have positive relationships with their adolescents believe their adolescent can rely on them in times of need and express feelings and thoughts and state that they let their adolescents know when they are proud of them.
