The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between parenting styles and adult attachment styles. A random sample of (564) male and female students at the faculty of educational sciences was chosen selected. Two questionnaires on attachment styles and parenting styles were administered to the selected sample population during the academic year of 2012-2013. Results indicated significant positive correlations between the authoritative, negligent and authoritarian parenting styles and secure, anxious-ambivalent and avoidant attachment styles, and negative correlation between negligent and anxious-ambivalent, redundant protection and secure. Results also indicate that parenting styles explain attachment styles and patterning styles predict two sub-dimensions of attachment styles.
