ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to examine the correlation between parenting styles (permissive and authoritarian), aggression and self-esteem. The sample of the study consisted of 100 young adults with different educational qualifications, gender and employment status, ranging from the age of 18-25. Standardized tests were used for collection of data which were Parental Authority Questionnaire (PAQ), Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BP-AQ) and Rosenberg Self-esteem Scale (RSES). Pearson product moment correlation was used to identify the correlation between parenting style, aggression and self-esteem. Results indicated that there was a significant positive correlation between permissive parenting style and authoritarian parenting style of both mother and father with aggression and a correlation between self-esteem and permissive and authoritarian parenting style of both mother and father.
