In today’s world to raise a child, parenting styles are more focused upon and adolescents is age where sensitivity of the relationship between parents and children is highest. To avoid bad habits like smoking, alcohol, drug abuse etc. parents might use strict approach towards adolescents which makes them rebellious and go against their parents. The objective of this paper was to study the role of antismoking parental actions on attitude of adolescents towards smoking. The research was conducted on 105 participants of the age group 18- and 19-years old adolescents. Through convenience sampling, the sample was taken. The data was collected by self-made questionnaire using a Likert scale to measure the attitude having the criterions such as rules about smoking in one's home, using non- smoking sections of public establishments and asking others not to smoke in one's presence of their child, in adopting adolescents’ attitude towards smoking. The results were analysed using descriptive statistics and Spearman’s coefficient using SPSS software, showing no effect of antismoking parental action on the attitude of adolescents.
