Introduction: There are numerous scales of parenting styles adapted for Peruvian adolescents. In addition, some report a structural model that does not match the model of the original version. Objective: Evaluate the psychometric properties of the Steinberg's Parenting Styles Scale in Peruvian adolescents. Method: The sample included 563 students. A model of relationships in three dimensions is confirmed: involvement, psychological autonomy, and parental supervision. Results: The analysis suggested the elimination of five items. The resulting scale shows a good fit: χ2 = 469.051, df = 184, χ2/df = 2.54, CFI = .95, TLI = .94, RMSEA = .053, SRMR = .063. Likewise, it shows an optimal internal consistency determined by the McDonald's omega index. Conclusion: The internal structure of the questionnaire was similar to the original questionnaire and presented adequate reliability and construct validity. however, additional studies with larger age range samples and different Peruvian subcultures are required to achieve its generalization.
