Abstract

This study aimed to examine the interplay between social withdrawal, parental control, academic procrastination, and/ or maladaptive perfectionism. Social withdrawal is associated with academic procrastination and maladaptive perfectionism while parental control plays an important role in relating social withdrawal, academic procrastination and maladaptive perfectionism. Adolescents and young adults including male (52.4%) and female (47.6%) from different Universities and Colleges of Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa completed standardized questionnaires i.e., Parenting Control Scale (PCS), Adult Self-Report (ASR), Tuckman Procrastination Scale (TPS) and Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (FMPS). Descriptive and Mediation Analysis was performed. There was a significant association between social withdrawal, parental control and academic procrastination (B = .129, p <.05). Furthermore, the findings also indicated a significant association between social withdrawal, parental control and maladaptive perfectionism (B = .271, p <.05). The findings suggest that parental control reduced the impact of social withdrawal on academic procrastination and maladaptive perfectionism.
