Urdu Translation and Validation of the Consolidated Helicopter Parenting Scale on Pakistani Youth
Keywords:Assessment, Confirmatory Factor Analysis, Helicopter Parenting, Parenting Practices, Validation
Research has demonstrated that helicopter parenting has adverse effects on the psychological well-being of youth. Consolidated Helicopter Parenting Scale (Schiffrin et al., 2019) is a reliable and valid scale for assessing helicopter parenting, however, this scale is not available in Urdu language. Hence, the objective of this research was to translate and validate this measure. This objective was achieved in two phases where in Phase I, the scale was translated into Urdu language using Brislin’s (1980) guideline. In Phase 2, validity was examined using a sample of 480 young people with an age range between 16-22 years (M = 18.6, SD = 1.60) with equal number of male and female participants using purposive and convenient sampling technique. The translated version showed greater internal consistency and confirmatory analysis provided a good fit of the model to the data reflecting upon the valid factor structure of the scale on a Pakistani sample. Overall, findings demonstrated that this is a valid and reliable tool and therefore, would improve further assessment of this parenting style in Pakistani sample.
