The Parental Stress Scale (PSS) is a short measure for the assessment of perceived stress resulting from being a parent. Parental Stress Scale is a validated 18 question screener which explores both positive and negative aspects of being a parent, including emotional benefits, personal development, demands on resources and feelings of stress. Experiencing parental stress is common among parents of children of all ages and is elevated in families characterized by stressors such as poverty, mental health problems, and developmental problems. Parental Stress Scale is designed for both mothers and fathers and those who have children with or without clinical challenges.
