The scale comprises six distinct subscales for each participant; mother’s permissive style, mother’s authoritarian style. mother’s authoritative style, father’s permissive style. father‘s authoritarian style, and father‘s authoritative style.

By Adding score on items 1, 6, 10, 13, 14, I7, 19, 21, 24. 28 permissive style would be obtained. For Authoritarian style items 2, 3, 7, 9, 12, 16, 18, 25, 26, 29 added and for Authoritative style item numbers 4, 5, 8. 11, 15, 20, 22, 23. 27. 30 was used.
