The purpose of this study was to examine the factor structure and internal reliability of the Parent-initiated Motivational Climate Questionnaire among 112 boys and 98 girls, young adolescents, and older adolescents. The questionnaire had a meaningful 3-factor structure and showed acceptable internal reliability. There was a significant difference between how boys and girls perceived their parents' reactions to their learning new physical skills. In contrast to boys, girls thought that both their mothers and fathers focused on improvement and self-satisfaction during the learning process and deemphasized learning without effort and worrying about making mistakes. Age did not significantly affect the perceptions the individuals had of their parents' convictions about their learning in the physical domain.
