Abstract


This study aims to identify the relationship between parenting styles (authoritative, authoritarian, permissive) and social skills (social cooperation, social interaction, and social independence) of preschool children in Banda Aceh. A total of 242 parents of two pre-schools in Banda Aceh were selected as samples in this quantitative research. Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire (PSDQ) and Preschool and Kindergarten Behavior Scales (PKBS) were used to collect data questionnaire. Data were analyzed using Pearson's correlation. Overall correlation analysis shows that there is significant correlation (p<0.05) between authoritative parenting style with children’s social skills, there is no significant correlation (p>0.05) between the authoritarian parenting style with children’s social skills, and there is no significant correlation (p>0.05) between the permissive parenting style with children’s social skills. The results of this study are expected to contribute to the development of science, beneficial to parents in educating and rising their children so that they can acquire good and appropriate social skills, and hopefully it can be referenced as a guide and useful input.
