A Retrospective Investigation of Differential Parenting Styles and Its Impact on Personal Growth of Emerging Adults

Dr. Shazia Khalid, Dr. Sumaya Batool, Dr. Sabir Zaman, Dr. Shazia Ashraf.

The current study was intended to measure the role of parenting styles, especially fathers, in personal growth of emerging adults. The sample comprised of 200 participants, among which 100 were men and 100 were women with a mean age of 22 years (S.D = 1.8). The results of zero-order correlation indicated a significant and positive correlation between authoritative fathers and mothers with personal growth, while negative correlation was observed between authoritarian fathers and mothers and personal growth. Multiple regression analysis followed by slope tests suggested that authoritative fathers as compared to authoritative mothers play a stronger role in personal growth of emerging adults. On the other hand, non-significant difference was obtained for authoritarian fathers and mothers. The findings suggest the significance of fathers’ contribution in the personal development of emerging adults.

Key words: Parenting, personal growth, fathers, mothers
