Abstract

The present study examined whether the type of parenting style as perceived by young adults is associated with social problem solving skills using a performance based task. Thirty-nine participants between the ages of 19 and 24 were given a Parental Authority Questionnaire (PAQ) and a performance-based Social Problem Solving Skills task (SPST). It was hypothesized that higher ratings on the authoritative style parenting scale would be correlated with more effective solutions for social problems and fewer self-critical and hostile attributions. Results showed a significant relationship between non authoritative parenting, specifically permissive, and content of chosen response, r(39) = -.36, p< .05, which supported the hypothesis. However, there was an interesting opposition to the hypothesis regarding self-critical attributions, where Authoritative parenting significantly correlated with more self-critical attributions, r(39) = .35, p< .05.
