The present study was sought to examine the role of maternal and paternal parenting styles on the prediction of emotional regulation among adolescents. Parental Authority Questionnaire (Babree, 1997) and Early Adolescents Temperament Questionnaire (Ellis & Rothbart, 2001) were used to collect the information from the participants. Sample of the current research consisted of adolescents (N = 194) belonging to 7th, 8th, and 9th classes. Multiple Regression analysis was applied to test the hypotheses. The results indicated that maternal authoritative parenting style had significant positive effect on emotion regulation. Maternal permissive parenting style had significant negative effect on emotion regulation. Similarly authoritative paternal parenting style had significant positive effect on emotional regulation whereas paternal permissive parenting style had significant negative effect on emotion regulation. However, results on the maternal and paternal authoritarian parenting style were non-significant. Current study is pretty insightful in understanding the role of parenting styles in emotion regulation.
