Does your child feel safe, listened to and involved in your family plans? What are your
son’s thoughts about allowances, your daughter’s questions on sex, or the reasons they
don’t invite friends over?
The Parent Report Card is a dynamic way for parents to learn more about their
children, respond to problems, and achieve more harmony as a family. The parent grades
her- or himself on 30 issues of concern to the child, such as “gives me hugs and kisses
when I want them” and “provides and enforces rules.” The child likewise grades the parent
on the same issues. Then parent and child compare their grading, to see how their views
are either similar or different. Each of the questions on the report card is keyed to
additional resouces and problem-solving guidelines in the accompanying booklet.
The Parent Report Card is easy to use and provides families with many new insights
and opportunities to address problems, make changes, and celebrate successes.
