The Parent Issues Checklist consists of a list of 27 issues
that can possibly lead to disagreements between parents and adolescents.
It was administered to one parent in each family at grade 5. This
checklist is a modification of a 44-item instrument developed by
Prinz, Foster, Kent & O'Leary (1979) and Robin & Foster (1989),
which is purported to measure conflictual issues and the perceived
intensity of anger over these issues. For each of the 27 issues,
the respondent indicates whether the topic has been broached in
the last month, whether the issue is one of three that had the most
anger involved or was the biggest problem for the parent and child,
and to indicate which issue the parent would be willing to discuss
as a current topic.
This technical report is based upon Year 6, Cohort 1 data, including
both High-Risk Control and Normative samples. With missing cases
excluded, the total N (including overlap) was 387, with 323 Normative
and 129 High-Risk Control youth.
This measure can be useful for pinpointing sources of conflict
and investigating which topics are perceived as promoting the biggest
Keywords: Parent Child Conflict, Behavior Problems, Compliance,
Family Dynamics, Behavioral Standards, Sibling Relationships.
