Abstract

In the present study we aim to develop a model that focuses on identifying factors which influence the parent-adolescent relationship. We use the structural equation model to test this model. In the study, among the variables affecting parent-adolescent relationship spousal support, sibling relations, peer relationships, and parental self -efficacy variables are discussed on the basis of an ecological approach. The sample consisted of 391 adolescents aged between 14-17 years and their parents (n=782). The results show that spousal support, peer relationships, and sibling relationships have a positive effect on the parent-adolescent relationship, while parental self-efficacy has a negative effect on the parent-adolescent relationship. Furthermore, parental self -efficacy affects the parent-adolescent relationship with the mediating role of sibling relationships. As a result of these findings, it can be stated that variables that were determined on the basis of the ecological system approach have both direct and indirect effects on the parent-adolescent relationship. We suggest that these variables may be used at intervention programs on relationship in further research, and parents' and adolescents' opinions about their relationships may be further examined by way of qualitative methods.
