One of the factor that cause aggressive behavior is the authoritarian parenting style. The authoritarian parenting style done by the parents can bring some impacts for the children. The children which always prosecuted to do their parents’ wish will feel frustrated which makes them to act freely and behave aggressively when they are outside home ( Sarwono,1988).

The subject of this research is 258 adolescents at the age of 13 and 18 years old. The method used in this research is quantitative methods with correlational approach. The sampling technique used is multistage random sampling . The measuring tool that used is authoritative upbringing scale (31 aitem; rxx` = 0,915) and aggressive behavior scale (39 aitem; rxx` = 0,902).
The main data in this research is analyzed by using spearman nonparametric correlation analysis with correlation value 0,314 and probability value 0,000. The supporting data is analyzed by using Independent Sample Test Analysis to see the difference of aggressive behaviour if it is observed from the age and the gender. The result of this research which analyzed by using Independent Sample Test indicate that there is no difference of aggressive behaviour based on the gender and age of research subject.
