The aim of the study was to develop an instrument for
measuring the Parental Behaviors in the Context of Adolescent
Disclosure (PBAD) and to examine its dimensionality, internal
consistency, predictive and construct validity. The scale has
been developed on the basis of a qualitative study of
adolescents' views (Tokić & Pećnik, 2011) and consists of 2
subscales: the PBAD-A (antecedents of disclosure) and PBAD-R
(reactions to previous disclosures). It was implemented with
1074 adolescents (13-year-olds) from 50 schools in Croatia
(probabilistic cluster sample). Adolescents also reported on
disclosure about daily activities, feelings and concerns. Youth
gave estimations for mothers and fathers separately. Latent
structures of the PBAD-A and PBAD-R were interpretable and
reasonably congruent for mothers and fathers. Factor analyses
of the PBAD-A revealed three factors: Initiating conversation,
Intrusiveness and Unavailability. Factor analyses of the PBAD-R
yielded three factors: Support and respectful guidance, A let-
-down and Punishment. Internal consistency for all factors was
acceptable (0.75 – 0.92). All except one of the extracted
factors of the PBAD correlated with actual disclosure to
mothers and fathers about daily activities, feelings and
concerns significantly and in the predicted direction, which
supports the predictive and construct validity of the instrument.
