Abstract

This thesis project looks at whether there is a relationship between a set of parents' parenting style and who their child chooses to play with at school. There were ten participants in the study, part of Piper Child Development Center. I collected observations throughout a semester of which children played with whom. I also gave parenting style questionnaires to the parents of the participants to determine how they interacted with their child. These questionnaires yielded numerical values for the parenting style of each parent. Afterwards, I compiled the observational data into matrices and determined the parenting style scores for the parents. It was evident that the children in the study sometimes played with children with similar parenting styles if they were in the same class.
