A relationship study of parenting styles and body composition among female adolescents
AUTHOR(S): Rajwinder Kaur
The objective of this study was to study the relationship of different parenting styles with the body composition of female adolescents. The subjects were selected from the various schools of three districts of Punjab viz. Amritsar, Gurdaspur and Hoshiarpur. The total number of subjects were 646 female students. The age of the subjects ranged from 13 to 18 years. Parenting style questionnaire was filled by parents and % body fat was examined by measuring two-site skinfolds. Slaughter’s equation was used for % body fat computation. Relationships between the variables were examined by using Spearman’s correlation. Results revealed that no significant correlation was found between three styles of parenting viz. authoritative, authoritarian and permissive and % body fat. Hence, it can be concluded that there is no relationship between parenting style and body composition.
