Abstract

The objective of this study was to describe the translation procedure and examine the psychometric properties of the Chinese version of the Parent–child Relationship Inventory (PCRI)—an instrument used for assessing parenting competencies for child custody evaluation (Gerard 1994). This instrument measures the parenting skills, attitudes towards parenting and parental attitudes towards their children. Mainland China and Hong Kong Chinese parents (N = 222) who have children ages 3 to 15 y old studying in Hong Kong completed the PCRI. Both within-network and between-network approaches to construct validation were used. Responses to this questionnaire were shown to have good internal consistency reliability, and support is provided for its construct validity in terms of its correlations PSI—a theoretically relevant measure. Implications for education and cross-cultural research are discussed.
