SAPARENT: SA POrient: Youths Parenting Orientation
Youth Parenting Orientation; the mean of six items in the scale. MEASURE: Parent Orientation The Youths Parenting Orientation scale was adapted for this study from Silverberg and Steinberg's (1990) subscale of Adult Role Orientation. The questions are asked only of youth who report having a child. The scale is used to assess the participant's view of his/her role as a parent (e.g., "Fathers/Mothers my age should devote most of their time and energy to rearing their child/children") and the degree to which this role is pervasive in his/her life. The inventory is a 6-item scale that asks participants to rank from 1 to 4 (1=Agree Strongly to 4=Disagree Strongly) the degree that each statement corresponds to their view of parenthood, with higher scores indicating greater parental orientation. (1) Disagree Strongly (2) Disagree (3) Agree (4) Agree Strongly Consult the Pathways Study codebook for more information (www.pathwaysstudy.pitt.edu).
