Abstract

The Child Report of Parental Monitoring contains eleven items taken from two separate scales reported by Capaldi and Patterson in their book, Psychometric properties of fourteen latent constructs from the Oregon Youth Study (1989). Items 1 through 6, intended to measure parental monitoring rules, are from the Oregon Study Child Interview. Items 7 through 11 are from the Oregon Study Telephone Interview and are seen as indicators of the child's report of parental monitoring practice.
For the items in this instrument, there is no obvious scoring. The formats for items 1 through 6 use a 4-point scale (0 = never, 1 = about once a week or less, 2 = more than once a week but less than once a day, and 3 = once or twice a day). Items 7 though 11 consist of No/Yes.

No scales were created for this measure.

Analysts should note that there is significant association for some variables between the behavior and sample type. The user is encouraged to investigate these associations. On most behaviors there is no association with regard to sample type.
