Assessing our Parenting Skills Simply

Cheerful School Boy

In order to assess our Parenting skills, we can answer the following critical questions and give our own self a score as indicated here under. The total score for all the 5 questions will give us a guide as to how well we are doing with bringing up our children.

1. Is our child living mostly in the present moment?
a. Yes
b. 25 to 50% of the time
c. Less than 25% of the time

2. Is our child capable of being mostly with himself and enjoying it?
a. Yes
b. 25 to 50% of the time
c. Less than 25% of the time

3. Is our child allowed to do what he/she wants to do?

Score 2 if answer is ‘a.’, 1 if it is ‘b.’, and 0 if it is ‘c.’. Then, total the score and find out from below how good a parent we are!
