These participants responded to Attitude to Drugs and Stimulants Scale, Scale of Secure-Insecure Levels of Family, Parenting Styles Scale, and Index of Brother and Sister Relations. This study was a correlational one wherein the obtained were analyzed using multivariate linear regression and multiple linear regression. Results: The results show that age, family relationships, and parenting styles can predict the triple dimensional attitudes to drugs.
