This article studies the relationship between the occurrence of impulsive behaviors of elementary school students and the parental rearing styles, and provides a reference for the early psychological behavior intervention and promoting the psychological development of elementary school students. In this study, a cluster sampling method was adopted. From April to June 2018, 11 primary schools were selected from the urban area of Shanghai. A total of 2278 primary school students were surveyed. The questionnaire mainly included the basic situation of parents and primary school students, the impulsive behavior of primary school students and the parental rearing methods. . Results Among the 2278 primary school students, 192 (8.43%) had impulsive behavior symptoms, 214 (9.39%) had abnormal behavior, 376 (16.50%) had hyperactive attention, and 537 (23.57%) had abnormal peer interaction. The total difficulty score was 233 abnormal (10.2%) and 254 pro-social behaviors (11.15%). Single factor analysis showed that gender, age, primary school students' birth health status, primary school students' second-hand smoke exposure, parental education level, family economic conditions, and parental rearing styles were all influencing factors of primary school students' impulsive behaviors and behaviors (all P values<0.05). Logistic regression analysis showed that father support/participation (OR=0.96, 95%CI=0.95~0.98), mother support/participation (OR=0.94, 95%CI=0.92~0.95), The mother’s hostile coercion (OR=1.08, 95%CI=1.06~1.10) was associated with the impulsive behavior and abnormal behavior of the pupils (all P values<0.01). Conclusion Parental support participation, mother’s hostile coercion and impulsive behaviors and abnormal behaviors in primary school students are associated with parenting styles.
