Relationship between parenting styles and emotional intelligence among late adolescents in Chennai
Adolescence is a transitional stage of physical and psychological development. In this momentous phase, the developmental changes are rapid and fluctuating. In handling them effectively, emotional intelligence plays a pivotal role by facilitating the ability to be aware, express, control, understand, interpret, and respond to the emotions of self and others. Reviews suggest that a parent’s chosen pattern of child-rearing, has potential contribution in a child’s emotional development. This research study is an effort to understand how parenting styles are associated with emotional intelligence. A purposive sampling was done among 89 adolescents in Chennai using Parental Authority Questionnaire-Revised and Quick Emotional Intelligence Self-Assessment. The result indicates that there is a positive correlation between parenting styles and emotional intelligence. The findings imply that there is no significant gender difference in the level of emotional intelligence.
