PARENTING STYLES, SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AMONG YEMENI HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN TURKEY

The present study aims to examine the relationship between parenting styles, social responsibility, and academic achievement of high school students. 147 Yemeni high school students studying in Turkey participated in this study. Parental Authority Questionnaire (PAQ), Social Responsibility Scale, and grade point average (GPA) of participants were used. The results show that there is a negative correlation between the authoritarian and authoritative parenting styles, as well as a positive correlation between the authoritative style by parents towards children and the social responsibility of children. Surprisingly, the outcomes do not indicate any relationship between academic achievement and both parenting styles and social responsibility. Also, results illustrate that there is an interaction effect between gender and type of school on the authoritative style and social responsibility. Nonetheless, they show no differences in parenting styles and social responsibility due to the number of siblings or the education level of parents
