Adolescent development is determined by many factors that intertwine, sometimes complementing each other and sometimes negating or cancelling each other out. One of them is the self-esteem which is conditioned by various factors. At the same time, self-esteem significantly determines the ways an individual develops and the extent to which he develops his abilities. Previous research has confirmed the importance of the relation between self-esteem and parental acceptance. This study aims to investigate the relationship between parental acceptance and adolescent self-esteem. The study was conducted on a sample of 401 students from the University of Mostar. In the study, the following instruments were used: a socio-demographic questionnaire, the Quality of Family Interaction Scale - KOBI and the Self-Esteem Questionnaire – SEI. In order to achieve the set research goal, the following methods were applied: descriptive statistics methods and Chi-square test. The obtained results confirmed the hypothesis that the higher the degree of parental acceptance is, the higher the level of adolescents' self-esteem is.
