A Review of the Relationship between Parenting Styles and Adolescents’ Emotional Intelligence

Jun Ye


This article reviews the literature on the relationship between parenting styles and adolescents’ emotional intelligence. The review of the empirical research indicates that authoritative parenting style is associated with higher levels of adolescents’ general emotional intelligence, trait emotional intelligence, and decision-making emotional intelligence. Conversely, authoritarian parents are associated with lower level of adolescents’ emotional intelligence, and self-regulatory emotional intelligence. However, further research is still needed to examine the relationship among cross culture, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
