Abstract

The study was conducted to investigate influence of parenting styles on the academic achievement of secondary school enrolment from the perspective of Pakistan's culture. A cross-sectional research design was used to complete this research. A survey was used as a method of data collection accompanied by questionnaires. A multi-stage sampling technique was used to approach the participants. The sample was comprised of 720 students at the secondary level. The outcomes of the study exposed that there is a positive link between parenting styles (responsiveness and control), academic self-efficacy, and academic achievement. The study results indicate a positive impact of parenting style (responsiveness) on the students' academic achievement at the secondary school level. Students reported differences in parenting styles (providing responsiveness and control), academic self-efficacy, and academic achievement. The study found significant differences between various groups of students' mothers' education. Results of the study revealed that responsiveness and control of parenting styles are not substantially different in various regions of the world.
