Promotion of Volitional Functioning (PVF) refers to a strategy whereby parents guide or scaffold an adolescent’s decision- making, rather than imposing a solution or ceding control, thereby allowing him/her to experience a sense of self-determination when resolving personal issues. Promotion of Volitional Functioning (PVF), moreover, is a method of autonomy support in which parents guide adolescents’ decision making by suggesting alternatives, tying them to adolescents’ values and goals, and permitting them to resolve issues for themselves
