Parenting style is very important to build children's personality. Cultural influences related to ethnicity will effect the parenting style applied by parents to their children. Baumrind (1979) identified three parenting styles consist of authoritarian, authoritative, and permissive. Indonesia is a country with different races and cultures. It is often easy to see differences between the tribes and cultures based on stereotypes existed in society.There is a stereotype in Indonesian society that considers the Batak tribe parents are more strict in rearing their child while Sundanese parents are more flexible. This empirical study paper attempted to find out the differences of parenting style in Sundanese and Batak Tribe mothers. Using 12-item Parenting Attitude Inventory (PAI) regenerated by O'Rilley dan Peterson (2014), fifty five mothers of Sundanese and Batak Tribe are being compared in their parenting style. Result suggests that Sundanese mothers are more using authoritative parenting style than Batak tribe mothers.
