    Background: Dentist plays a unique role in the treatments plan for the pediatric patient. Without a proper behavior management technique (BMT), there would not be a successful treatment outcome. The reason for this study is to evaluate the various accepted BMTs by parents so that when such BMT s are performed on kids, parents should not get offended. Aim: The aim of the study is to analyze the various accepted BMTs by parents. Materials and Methods: The study is carried out by preparing a questionnaire containing 12 questions which are to be circulated among randomly selected parent group population using an online survey tool – survey planet. 100 questionnaires were filled. The questionnaire was used to analyze the various accepted BMTs by parents. General awareness about the type of BMT was also analyzed among parent group population. Results: This study gives us data that most parents accept Tell-Show-Do (TSD) technique followed by pharmacological techniques such as sedation and general anesthesia. Invasive techniques such as hand over mouth exercise, papoose board, and voice control were the least preferable ones. Conclusion: From this study, we can conclude that there is a drastic change in acceptance of various BMTs by parents for the past few decades. At present, the trend of moving into the pharmacological technique of behavior management is showing growth in acceptability among parents. Most of the parents do not prefer any kind of invasive BMTs such as voice control, papoose board, hand over mouth, and apart from these many parents readily accepted for TSD technique as this technique is parent and patient-friendly.
