Niemeier BS, Hektner JM, Enger KB: Parent participation in weight-related health interventions for children and adolescents: a systematic review and meta-analysis. 2012, 55: 3-13. 10.1016/j.ypmed.2012.04.021. Be prepared to discuss your overall goals for the Teen Behavior Contract. Consider including these important concepts: clearly state your « absolutes. » These are the rules that will never change. You are the limits that apply to the safety of your teens. They cannot cross borders. For example, driving while disabled, the passenger of a disabled driver and drug use. If the treaty changes, the non-negotiable rules will remain in place. These are the staple foods that remain independent of your evolving agreement.
In order to assess the overall agreement between the child and the parents on parenting practices, we established a conformity assessment of the 14 practices, ranging from 0 (no agreement at all) to 100 (compliance in all practices). An average match value was calculated for parent-child dyads who responded to at least 10 out of 14 practices (6358 out of 6425; 99%). We calculated separately the percentage of agreement between the child and the parent ratio for each parenting practice as a whole and separately for each of the participating countries. The percentage compliance criteria defined were « good to excellent » (≥75%), « moderate » (60% to 74%) and « poor » (<60%) [38, 39].
