Abstract

The current study examines the role of parenting styles (permissive, authoritative, and authoritarian) in predicting adolescents’ school and health wellbeing through the mediational role of adolescents’ academic self-efficacy and physical self-concept. Data were collected from 1599 Omani adolescents (mean age = 17.50, SD = 1.02, males = 783, females = 816). These were analyzed using EQS Structural Equation Modeling. Results suggest that authoritative and permissive parenting styles are effective in predicting adolescents’ school wellbeing directly and indirectly through academic self-efficacy. Likewise, the same two parenting styles predicted health wellbeing directly and indirectly through physical self-concept. Outcomes differed based on maternal and paternal parenting styles. Findings are discussed within a cultural context.
