Many parents report high levels of guilt about parenting at times, yet few measures of parenting guilt exist. This study aims to develop and validate a measure of parenting guilt that can be used to assess levels of guilt and to assess change in guilt following interventions.

The Guilt About Parenting Scale (GAPS) has been developed and is being evaluated for validity.
