The Covid-19 pandemic had a huge impact on the family functioning. Fathers are known to be at risk of experiencing parenting stress which also has an impact on his parenting styles (authoritative, authoritarian, permissive) and their children’s internalizing (sad, anxious, afraid) and externalizing (hitting, angry) behavior problems. The purpose of this study was to determine the role of father’s parenting stress and his parenting styles on the child behavior problems during the Covid-19 pandemic. This research uses non-experimental quantitative methods with a sample size of 110 participants (age 20 years and over). The results of the analysis found that the level of parenting stress in this study was found to be low (M=2.3019). Parenting stress has a role in the child internalizing (β =0.338; p<0.01) and externalizing (β=0.182; p<0.01) behavior problems, towards authoritative (β=−0.475; p<0.01), authoritarian (β=0.592; p<0.01), and permissive (β=0.373; p<0.01) parenting. Authoritative parenting was found to play a role in the child internalizing (β=−0.147; p<0.05) and externalizing (β=−0.132; p<0.05) behavior. Authoritarian parenting has a role in internalizing (β=0.428; p<0.01) and externalization (β=0.340; p<0.01) behavior. Permissive parenting also has a role on child internalizing (β=0.692; p<0.01) and externalization (β=0.404; p<0.01) behavior. Authoritarian and permissive parenting styles were found to act as mediators in children’s behavior problems (p<0.05). However, authoritative parenting does not act as a mediator (p>0.05). This study found that the low parenting stress of the father had an impact on the lower internalizing and externalizing behavior problems in children, and the father displayed a positive parenting styles (authoritative).
