Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the role of perceived parenting styles and self-compassion in predicting addiction readiness in the youth. Method: This study was correlational-descriptive. The statistical population included all students of University of Bojnord in 2018-2019. The sample size consisted of 340 individuals who were selected by cluster sampling method and answered to the addiction potential scale, the parental authority questionnaire, and the self-compassion scale. Data were analyzed using hierarchical multiple regression. Results: The results showed that authoritative parenting style and self-compassion negatively and significantly, and the authoritarian and permissive parenting styles positively and significantly predicted addiction readiness. Among the six dimensions of self-compassion, two dimensions of self-kindness and self-judgment negatively and significantly predicted addiction readiness. Among parenting styles, authoritative style was the strongest predictor. Also, self-compassion independently of parenting styles predicted addiction readiness. Conclusion: The results showed that parenting styles and self-compassion are important predictors of addiction readiness in the youth, and these two components should be considered in addiction-related prevention and treatment programs. Explanations and implications related to the research findings were discussed.
