The present study was carried out to identify whether perceived parenting has a significant
relationship with the development of maladaptive schemas and whether perceived
parenting predicts the development of maladaptive schemas among adolescents. The
sample of the study consisted of 300 adolescents (male = 140 and female = 160) from
the state of Goa. The measures used for the purpose of the study were the Young
Parenting Inventory (YPI – R2) (2018) by Louis, J. P., Wood, A., & Lockwood, G. and the
Young Schema Questionnaire (1998) by Young & Brown. The statistical analyses applied
were Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation and Regression Analysis. The results of
the study indicated that there exists a significant positive correlation between perceived
parenting and the development of maladaptive schemas. The study also suggested that
perceived parenting significantly and positively predicted the development of maladaptive
schemas. Further, the implication of the study is discussed..
