Subject has terminated parental rights.

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.
