Abstract

Parenting styles and competence predict many aspects of the children’s well-being. Studies indicate that
parents present the first learning environment for their children before joining schools, and that the impacts
they have to their children may influence their children up to college level. Although many studies have been
conducted on the impacts of parenting style and parental competence on emotional intelligence, majority
of these are mainly in the context of Western or Asian countries and little, or none in the context Nigeria,
particularly, in urban area of Anambra State. Therefore, the general objective of the study is to conceptualize
the relationships of parenting style and parental competence on emotional intelligence of college students in
urban area of Anambra state, Nigeria.
