Background: Attitude toward child-rearing is one of the factors that is very effective on the mental, emotional, and behavioral efforts of parents especially mothers in adapting strategies for children-rearing. Objective: The goal of this research is to standardize the questionnaire for mothers’ attitudes toward child-rearing. Methods: In this descriptive research the methodology is of standardizing type. The statistical population herein were mothers in Tehran in 2018-19. 599 mothers from Tehran were randomly selected using the multistage cluster sampling method and were placed in the sample group. In this research, data analysis was done in two descriptive and inferential levels, and abundance, percentage, percentage rating, Z & T score, exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, correlation coefficient, index of fit, Cronbach's alpha, and retest were used. Findings: Fundamental factors of the questionnaire, three cognitive, behavioral, and emotional realms were determined and 27 questions have the necessary factor loading. Found data demonstrate that the questionnaire for mothers’ attitudes toward children rearing has structural validity, convergent validity, internal consistency, and content validity, and using Cronbach’s Alpha, questionnaire reliability is higher than 0.84. The content validity of this questionnaire was approved by experts. IFI, TLI, CFI, NFI, GFI, and RMSEA indexes approve the desirable and appropriate validity. Results: Results show that the questionnaire for mothers’ attitudes toward children rearing has appropriate validity, reliability, and norms. In addition, as education is increased, a more favorable attitude toward child rearing is seen in the sample group but employment and age did not make any difference.
