More on the PJI

What is on offer?
You now have access to the Parenting Judgement Indicator (PJI). It has a series of very familiar family situations where a decision has to be made. All you have to do is to rate the appropriateness of four different ways of engaging with the children. The children in each scenario are deliberately aged between 9 and 11, although this is only because this is the age when your need to keep control and the child's need for freedom can be most obviously in conflict. However, please understand, the PJI is meant to help parents and carers of children of all ages.

By completing the PJI you will be able to benchmark yourself against a very varied set of other ordinary parents. This can give you ideas about ways to develop your parenting judgement. Moreover, if you encourage others close to you to complete the PJI, the benefits to the children and family dynamics will be even more obvious, especially if you use the results to gain more consistency between you.

What Parents and Carers Have to Say
MOTHER: 'Very informative and thought provoking.  I was not surprised at the findings but found the guidance extremely useful and it made me think and realise what I am actually doing to bring up my children. I don't think I've ever sat down and considered it in quite this way before. I will definitely be using this (and already have) in the future to help me raise my family.  Thank you.'

FOSTER CARE MANAGER: 'I found the indicator pretty accurate in relation to my own decision making and judgment and it reflected my approach of getting alongside children and young people in an attempt to reach agreement through listening and compromise. Many thanks.'

FOSTERING AND RECRUITMENT TEAM SOCIAL WORKER: 'I have found this to be very relevant and I think it is a true reflection of my parenting style. As a team of Social Workers we have all completed it and we all felt that it would be a useful tool for foster carers to help them understand their parenting style.'
