Abstract

In a recent study, parenting styles were identified according to how students perceived them and the association between parenting styles and academic achievement was investigated. It was based on Baumrind's theoretical concept of parenting. It consists of authoritarian, lenient and authoritative parenting philosophies. The three parenting styles were evaluated using a modified version of the Parental Authority Questionnaire (Buri, 1991) which took into account students' perceptions of their parents' parental supervision methods. All Lahore undergraduate students, including both male and female students from all universities, made up the study's population. Random sampling technique was employed and 200 students made up the sample's total number of respondents. The two genders were equally represented via random sampling. Research design of the study was correlational and for the purpose of data collection, a cross-sectional survey was adopted. Data was analyzed statistically by using SPSS. Inferential statistics and descriptive statistics were used. The study findings reveals that permissive parenting style has the greatest mean value, followed by Authoritative parenting and Authoritarian parenting. A low negative correlation between parenting styles and academic achievement was found. There was a substantial correlation between the data.
