Abstract: Based on the data collected from 125 parents in Hong Kong, the psychometric properties of the original 23-item Chinese Parental Expectation on Child’s Future Scale (CPECF) are examined in this paper. Results showed that the scale had good reliability (internal consistency and test-retest reliability) and convergent validity in the sample. After deletion of six items, a revised scale (Revised-CPECF) was further developed. The Revised Chinese Parental Expectation on Child’s Future Scale (Revised-CPECF) showed improvement in internal consistency and convergent validity. For the dimensionality of the revised measure, a 5-factor structure was extracted from the parent sample. The present study is a pioneer attempt to assess parental expectation on child’s future in different Chinese communities.
