Developed by the authors of the BASC-3, the Parenting Relationship Questionnaire (PRQ) is designed to capture a parent's perspective on the parent-child relationship. The PRQ has two forms:

  • Preschool (ages 2-5)
  • Child and adolescent (ages 6-18)

which can be completed in 10-15 minutes by the mother, father or other primary caregiver.

Features of the PRQ 

  • Multiple dimensions that are relevant to the development of strong and healthy parent-child relationships
  • Normative samples, for both female and male raters, that are closely matched to U.S. Census population estimates
  • Items written at a third-grade reading level
  • Validity indexes that can be used to detect careless or exaggerated responding
  • Three types of record forms: hand-scored, computer-entry, and scannable
  • Computer software that provides detailed single- or multiple-administration reports, including progress reports and multirater reports that can be used to compare mother and father settings

Uses of the PRQ 

The PRQ was designed to provide information that is useful across a variety of settings and applications, including: 

  • School and psychological evaluations as a complementary tool to other assessments to determine an appropriate intervention plan based on parental involvement.
  • Clinical and paediatric evaluations where parent involvement is key to an effective treatment plan.
  • Family counseling evaluations to assess different parenting relationships, beliefs, and practices among parents or other caregivers.
  • Intervention and treatment programs where parents are involved in the therapy process.
