Parenting is a relationship among parents and children in which parents try to encourage their kids to adopt more socially acceptable behaviors, knowledge, and attitudes. Different parenting styles have different impacts on children, especially in terms of education and learning outcomes at school. This study seeks to determine whether there is a correlation between parenting styles and students' English achievement by examining the different approaches to parenting that students' parents used. This study employed quantitative data and the correlation method of research. The result revealed that there are three (3) different parenting styles that parents use, namely permissive, authoritarian, and democratic. From the three parenting styles, the result indicated that democratic parenting style obtained highest level of agreement. This implies that the parents tended to use democratic style when raising their children. Another finding revealed that there was a strong correlation regarding style of parenting and English achievement of students. This means that when the way parents raise their children supports their study, it seems that the students’ achievement is better. In another word, it can be said that parenting style influences the students’ English achievement. This finding highlights that democratic parenting style influence positively to the students’ achievement. When the parents give children opportunities to express their ideas and learn according to their interests, it may influence their study positively.
