The objective of the study was to study if there would be a significant relationship between each parenting style, prosocial behaviour and empathy. Method: The sample included 120 parents with children between the age of 12 and 18. A convenience sampling design was used. The tools used were The Perth Empathy Scale, Prosocialness Scale for Adults (PSA) by Caprara and Perceived Parenting Style Scale (PPSS) by Manikandan. Results: our findings indicate a substantial and positive association between an authoritative parenting style and prosocial conduct as well as a significant and positive relationship between an authoritative parenting style and empathy. The association between an authoritarian parenting style and prosocial conduct and the relationship between an authoritarian parenting style and empathy were both insignificant. While there was no significant connection between passive parenting and empathy, there was a strong and favourable association between passive parenting and prosocial behaviours.
