The descriptive-correlation study design used to investigate the relation between parenting styles and
children’s behavior difficulties by using the Parenting Styles and Dimensions Questionnaire, and Strengths
and Difficulties Questionnaire to achieve study objectives. An online questionnaire applied as a method of
data collecting on 101 parents (majority of them mothers) and their 4-11 years old children, 58 of them were
males and 43 were females. The finding of the current study reveals that the authoritative parenting style was
