Background and Objective: Childhood behavioral and emotional problems may be continus to puberty, even extend to elderly. This study was carried out to determine the role of family accommodation of child symptoms, parenting style and parental stress in prediction of anxiety disorder in children with 6 - 10 years old in Golestan province, north of Iran.

Methods: In this descriptive-analytic study 300 children with 6-10 years old and their mothers were selected by randomized cluster sampling method during 2017. The questionnaires of family accommodation scale-anxiety (FAS-A, 2013), parent stress index-sort form (PSI-SF, 2000), Bamerind parenting styles questionnaire 1973 and Spence child anxiety scale-parent form (SCAS-P, 1998) were completed by the mothers.

Results: Increasing family accommodation and parenting stress significantly correlated with increasing children anxiety (P<0.05). The authenticated childbearing style by parents significantly correlated with reducing the anxiety in children (P<0.05), but authoritarian parenting and permissive parenting by parents significantly correlated with increasing the anxiety in children (P<0.05). Authenticated childbearing style along with authoritative parenting style, parental stress and family support could predict 49% of children's anxiety (F=97.91, P<0.0001).

Conclusion: Authoritative and authoritarian parenting, parenting stress, family accommodation has an effective role in predicting children's anxiety.
