Perceived Parenting Style, Self-Compassion, and Forgiveness among Adults
Keywords:Perceived Parenting Styles, Self-Compassion, Forgiveness.
AbstractThe present study focuses on understanding the relationship between Perceived Parenting Styles, Self-Compassion, and Forgiveness among Adults. Based on a general adult sample (N =215) the findings indicated that there was a significant relationship between Maternal authoritative and authoritarian parenting styles in self-compassion and forgiveness. However, significance was only found in authoritative parenting style and forgiveness in Paternal Perceived Parenting styles. The results also revealed that there were no gender differences found in self-compassion and forgiveness. Middle Adults had a higher level of self-compassion and forgiveness than young adults. Some limitations were noted, the short 12-item version of the self-compassion scale was deemed ineffective, by the author, for comparing and analysing the domains, and the study cannot be generalized as the population size was small. Future research in this area can be a qualitative study for much more accurate results in this study.
