The prime purpose of this study was to examine the effects of parenting style and academic hardiness on achievement motivation. The data on parenting styles, academic hardiness, and achievement motivation were collected through self-report questionnaires from a sample of 1006(514 females & 492 males) secondary school adolescent students selected via multi-stage cluster random sampling technique from eight secondary schools in Bale Zone, Oromia Regional State, Ethiopia. It was hypothesized that i) adolescent students who had perceived their parents’ parenting style as authoritative parents would have higher achievement motivation than their counterparts who had perceived as authoritarian, permissive and neglectful, ii) adolescent students with high academic hardiness would have higher achievement motivation compared to their counterparts with low academic hardiness.
