The purpose of this study was to determine if there is a relationship between parenting styles of parents with children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder and the relationship between the parent and the child. This study was conducted in Atlanta, Georgia, Fulton County at two Head Start Centers. A descriptive research design was utilized. A self administered 23 item parents report questionnaire was administered to the population of 30 African American single males and females who had a child or children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder.

A T-test analysis was employed to analyze the significant relationship of the hypothesis. It was concluded that there is no statistical significant difference in parental satisfaction and in parenting styles among fathers and mothers of children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder.
