I am Computer Science student and studying Psychology as an elective. Now I was required to conduct a research on any topic. I chose: Negative Effects of Permissive Parenting Style on Youth of Pakistan. I am having difficulty in making Questionnaire (since I have very little experience about it). I want your expertise to know which approach is better. I have following two approaches of making questionnaire.

Second Approach: What do you think about the following statements?
⦁ Your parent really expect you to follow family rules.
⦁ Your parent try to know where you go at night.
⦁ Your parent know exactly where you are most afternoons after school.
⦁ When your parent tell you to do something, they expect you to do it immediately without any question.
⦁ Your parent get very upset if you try to disagree with them.
⦁ It is a bad idea to question authority.
⦁ A person must have clear long term goals.
⦁ You would rather do something beside studying during extra time.
⦁ If you like something, you want to have it no matter what.
⦁ You have a healthy diet.
In the first approach, direct questions with binary options are given.
In the second approach, first 5 questions are used to depict whether the subject is permissive or not. Next five questions are used to know what are the effects on permissive parenting.
