This study examined the different parental styles and the conflict that usually occur in an attempt to discipline the adolescents. The sample was made up of 250 adolescents who were randomly selected from five secondary schools in rural and five secondary schools in urban areas of Osun State. They were between 12 and 20 years and their mean age was 16.2 years. Adolescent Attitude to Parental Discipline Scale (AAPDS) was used to collect the data. Three hypotheses were tested for significant at 0.05 margin of error using the z-statistic. The findings show that: Rural adolescents have better attitudes towards parental discipline than those adolescents do from urban areas. Males and females shared similar view on parental discipline. Also, early and late adolescents have the same attitude towards parental discipline. The counselling implications of the above findings were discussed.
