Abstract

Adolescents are expected to have been able to distinguish any kind of behavior that has either positive or negative impact on themselves. However, there is a high prevalence in adolescents who tend to engage in risky behavior. One of the most worrying behaviors is smoking behavior. The purpose of this research is to determine how significant are the perceptions of smoking risk and parenting style in predicting adolescent smoking risk behavior. This research was participated by 145 adolescents (age 15-20) which were selected by purposive sampling technique. Multiple linear regression method is used to analyze and the data.The results were found that the perception of smoking risk and parenting style are significant to predict adolescent smoking risk behavior. The most significant dimension of risk perception in predicting adolescent smoking risk behavior is dread risk dimension; which means the more adolescents fear the risks of smoking, the less they will smoke. The most significant parenting style in predicting adolescent smoking risk behavior is authoritative; which means the more adolescents have an authoritative parenting style, the less likely they will smoke.
