This study seeks to conduct a systematic review of different perenting styles on procrastination behaviours. Following the PRISMA flow chart, a web-based literature search from 7 electronic databases has been conducted to identify relevant studies published between the year of 2000 to 2018. Based on the inclusion criteria, 11 studies with the sample size ranged between 15 to 685 middle school to undergraduate students were included in this review. It was found that majority of the research focused on the parenting typologies introduced by Baumrind or Maccoby and Martin. While the research on parenting styles mostly evaluated the academically related and general procrastination, limited attention was given to chronic or dysfunctional procrastination. The review found that the negative effects of authoritarian, uninvolved or permissive parenting style towards procrastination behaviour was being described to the greatest extent. In contrast, authoritative parents were inversely related to procrastination.
