This study examined the relations between parenting behaviors (parental knowledge and parental control) of both mothers and fathers and externalizing behavior of adolescents (11-16 years). Moderation of these relations by gender was also investigated. The sample of this study consisted of 520 adolescents (Mage = 13.03; SD = .46). Questionnaires of adolescents were used to measure parenting behavior. To measure externalizing behavior questionnaires of mothers and fathers were used. Findings revealed that less parental knowledge and less parental control was associated with more adolescent externalizing behavior. No gender differences were found in this relation.
