INTRODUCTION: Children and adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) experience problems with adults, especially with their parents, due to self-regulation deficiencies involving impulse control, self-restraint and inhibition problems. It is also reported that problems in parental attitudes play an important role in increasing the severity of ADHD findings. Because of these two conditions, we thought that there may be a relationship between attachment patterns and parenting styles of adolescents with ADHD.
