Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This study examined the relationship between identity styles (information oriented styles, normative style, and diffuse avoidant style) with three perceived parenting dimensions (parental support, psychological control, and behavior control) which was measured by Identity Style Inventory (ISI -5), Children Report of Parent Behavior Inventory (CRPBI), and Psychological Control Scale-Youth SelfReport (PCS-YSR). Each identity style was hypothesized to be associated with a particular parenting dimension. The study was conducted on 165 adolescents, all were 12th grade students in Jabodetabek. The results show that there was a significant positive relationship between parental support and diffuse avoidant style, a significant negative correlation between psychological control and diffuse avoidant style, and a positive significant correlation between paternal behavior control and normative style. This finding provide urgency for parents to have high parental support to encourage their children’s use of information oriented style. Further research should examine other factors that shape identity style and explore how culture plays a role in parenting.
