Abstract

This research examines about the relationship between parenting style and self-esteem among students in a faculty at a Public University in Malaysia. The study involved 120 students and was analysed by using the descriptive and inferential statistics. Parenting styles was measured by “Parental Authority Questionnaire” (PAQ) instrument while the self-esteem was measured by “Rosenberg Self-Esteem Inventory” (RSES). The data were analyzed by using the “Statistical Package for Social Science” version 18.0. All of the data were analyzed using Pearson correlation and descriptive statistics. As a conclusion, the results show that permissive parenting style is the dominant parenting style used by the parents of university students. In addition, most of the university students have high level of self-esteem. Besides this, it is also found that there is a significant relationship between parenting style and self-esteem among university students. The study is also found that there is a positive relationship between authoritative and permissive parenting style with self-esteem. Meanwhile, the study found that the authoritarian parenting style has a negative relationship with students' self-esteem
