Good and amiable parenting styles go a long way in moulding the child to face the exigencies of the future and protect the child from developing aggressive behaviours. In Asaba, adolescents with mild intellectual disabilities have exhibited aggressive behaviours in recent times. This paper therefore examined parenting styles as correlates of aggressive behaviours among in - school adolescents with mild intellectual disabilities. The study is a correlation study. Participants were purposely selected while the PSABIA questionnaire which contained information on personal data, parenting styles and aggressive behaviour respectively was used for data collection. The multiple regression was used to analyse data set at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed that different parenting styles were associated with aggressive behavioural problems one way or the other. The study therefore recommended among others that dialogue, communication, explanation and the establishment of good and cordial relationship between parents and children should be encouraged.
