Keywords:Perceived Parenting Styles, Emotional Intelligence, Late Adolescents
AbstractAdolescents and children’s perceptions of the parenting behaviors they experienced as children are known as perceived parenting styles. Emotional intelligence (EI): “concerns the ability to carry out accurate reasoning about emotions and the ability to use emotions and emotional knowledge to enhance thought” (Mayer et al., 2008). Many studies have found that there’s a relationship between these two variables. Hence this study aims to understand the relationship between Perceived Parenting Style and Emotional Intelligence among Late Adolescents. This study was conducted among people between the ages of 18-21 in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. There were 113 female and 85 male participants. Perceived Parenting Styles was assessed by using Perceived Parenting style Scale (PPSS) and Emotional Intelligence was assessed using Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire – Short Form (TEIQue-SF). The results of the study indicated that there is significant positive correlation between authoritative parenting style and emotional intelligence, significant negative correlation between permissive as well as authoritarian parenting style and Emotional Intelligence. The results also indicated there is no gender difference in Emotional Intelligence.
