Take the Quiz: Which Country's Parenting Values Match Yours?

PBS

I know, I know I have quiz fatigue, too. (Not to mention bitterness over the results of 'Which Grease Pink Lady are you?'). But here's an online exercise that is actually thought-provoking: Which Country Shares Your Parenting Values?

The exercise, on PBS.org, instructs you to rank 11 qualities you think are important for children to learn at home (e.g. responsibility, tolerance, hard work, self-expression*). Your results are compared to a World Values Survey and matches you with the three countries with the most similar parenting values.

What I like about this exercise isn't so much the reveal of the results (mine were Chile, Uruguay and Japan, by the way), but that it makes you examine your home setting and parenting style in a big picture way that in the day-to-day, moment-to-moment fracas of life with kids, we don't usually have time for.
