This paper aims to understand the source of stress and parental coping strategy during parenting a deaf or hard-of-hearing schoolchild for Indonesian parents. Data was collected using qualitative approach by distributing open questionnaires in four special schools in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Further, it is found that parents use some coping strategies, such as self-regulation, active communication, seeking help, giving educational concern, become permissive, and applying the spiritual approach to their deaf or hard-of-hearing children. The implication of this study is focusing on the positive parenting program for families with deaf or hard-of-hearing schoolchildren. Later on, it is suggested for future investigation to explore the family resources, such as parenting values and psychological aspects, which will strengthen the positive parenting within families with deaf or hard-of-hearing schoolchildren.
