Abstract: The relationship between parent-child home language, endorsement of values and perceived parenting style was explored in a sample of 164 students and their parents from Saint Andrews Junior College. Scales used were translated for use with Malay and Indian samples. The researcher hypothesized that (a)Preferred language and Home language would be significantly correlated with Values endorsement, (b)Parents and children who endorsed similar Values would have higher perceived Parenting scores, (c)Parents and children who have similar Home language would have higher perceived parenting scores. Results indicated that only Home language was significantly correlated with Values endorsement, parent-child pairs with similar Values had higher Parenting scores and no link could be directly established between Language and perceived Parenting style.
