The purpose of this study is to investigate whether there are differences in adolescents' school adaptation according to the types of perceived parental attitudes and consistency. For this purpose, 586(306 girls) middle and high school students were surveyed about their perceived parental attitudes and school adjustment, and the differences were verified through multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA). The results showed that the adolescents' school adaptation was different according to the types of parental attitudes. Affection - autonomy cohort group's school adjustment was significantly higher than the other groups. In addition, the hostility - control group were found to have lower adaptation level than the disagreement group. Based on this results, we discussed the importance and influences of parental attitude and suggested the directions of follow up studies on parenting attitude and adaptation.
