AbstractThis study attempts to find out the relation between parental attitudes as perceived by adolescents and their sibling and the relation between parenting dimensions and self-esteem. The parenting dimensions studied were firm control, psychological control and acceptance. The study was conducted among 129 adolescents pursuing undergraduate course and their sibling in Thiruvananthapuram Kerala state. They were administered the CRPBI questionnaire and self-esteemquestionnaire. Results reveal that there is no difference in the way parenting is perceived by children of the same family. When adolescents feel that parents give more acceptance the self-esteem is high.
