Abstract: Abstract Whilst children with dyslexia may experience educational and psychological turmoils, their parents are confronted with tremendous stress. Conceptualized as a construct involving child, parent and environmental characteristics, stress results when parents appraise that the demands exceed their parenting capacity. By means of both quantitative and qualitative research methods, this study aims at exploring the relationship between parenting stress generated from caring dyslexic children and parenting styles, coping styles, and perceived social support. 64 parents and their dyslexic children who were Secondary school students participated in this study, and four parents also participated in semi-structured interviews. The findings revealed that parenting stress were unrelated to parenting styles. The coping strategy of self-blame exacerbated the effect of stress on parents. However, perceived social support was a significant predictor of parents' stress and psychological well being. Qualitative data suggested that the stresses of caring dyslexic children were multi-faceted. In spite of the parenting stress, parents also cherished the rewards of caregiving.
