Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of parental educational background on studentsí deviant
behaviours in Federal universities in the south-south geopolitical zone of Nigeria.. The design adopted for this study
was the descriptive survey design. The main instrument used for data collection was theďParental Educational
Background on Deviant Behaviour Questionnaire (PEBDEBEQ). Multi-staged sampling technique was used in
selecting the representative sample size of 1,524 students drawn from the population. Data were analyzed using
One-Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The hypothesis was tested at 5% level of significance. The findings
revealed that parents who are relatively higher in level of education tend to transmit discipline culture and values to
their children and also they make the home environment favourable to their children by meeting their needs.
Conclusion was that parental education influences the discipline behaviour of students. Based on the findings, it was
recommended among others that both governmental and non-governmental organizations should be involved in nonformal
education programmes that will enhance the educational level of parents.

Key words: Deviance control mechanism, deviant behaviours, truancy, examination malpractice behaviour
