Questionnaire for Parents of 10- to 18-year olds
Answer these questions keeping in mind that you want to compare your son or daughter with what you feel the average child his or her age is experiencing. For example, on the question, “Is your son or daughter inattentive or easily distracted,” think about how your son or daughter would compare to peers in his or her age group. Also consider the duration of the symptoms. If the symptoms have been taking place for less than 6 months this could be a sign of another problem such as depression, anxiety or just stress in general. Please consider these factors as you rate your child.
Answer each question with the phrase that best applies
• Does not apply to my child
• Occasionally true in describing my child
• This often describes my child’s behavior or trait
• This is a darn good description for my kid
