Objectives: The present study was performed to examine the relationship between fathers’ lifestyles and parenting styles of drug addicts compared to normal individuals. Method: The study sample consisted of 173 addicted subjects referred to addiction treatment centers in Tehran and 195 normal subjects selected using convenience sampling method. Data were obtained using Basic Adlerian Scales for Interpersonal Success-Adult form (BASIS_A), and Baumrind Parenting Styles; and were analyzed using Pearson's correlation, multiple linear regression, and MANOVA. Results: Some lifestyles’ subscales significantly predicted parenting styles in addicted and normal subjects. There was no significant difference between the two groups considering the relationships between paternal parenting styles and children’s gender and family structure. Conclusion: The results support the influence of father's lifestyle on his parenting style. Thus, the lifestyle should be emphasized as a crucial psychological issue.
