Abstract: Objective To explore relationship of facing-audience communication apprehension to parental rea-ring style and loneliness in college freshmen.Methods Totally 1072 college freshmen were selected.They were assessed with the Facing-audience Communication Apprehension Scale (revised version of 201 1),the Short-form Egna Minnen av Barndoms Uppfostran for Chinese (s-EMBU-C)and UCLA Loneliness Scale (Version 3).The relationship among these factors was analyzed by structural equation modeling.Results The scores of FACA were higher in female students than in males [(67.25 ±19.66)vs (74.47 ±20.71),t =-5.815,P <0.001,d =0.367],and the scores of FACA were lower in the freshmen who come from city than freshmen who come from country [(65.99 ±20.69 ) vs (71.96 ± 20.41),t =-3.307,P <0.001,d =0.293].The FACA and loneliness scores were negatively correlated with paren-tal warmth (r =-0.18, -0.15),while the FACA and loneliness scores were positively correlated with the scores of parental denial,parental over-protect (r =0.13,0.15,0.15,0.15,0.43).Structural equation model found loneli-ness played a partly mediating role between positively parenting styles and facing-audience communication apprehension, mediation effect accounted for 63.8%,and played a completely mediating role between negatively parenting styles and fa-cing-audience communication apprehension.Conclusion There may be a close relation of parenting styles and facing-au-dience communication apprehension, and parenting styles could affect facing-audience communication apprehension through loneliness.
