Adolescence is amongst the most rapid stage of human development. It is the period to create knowledge and skills, learn to manage emotions, obtain attributes and capacities and relationships with parents and peers. All these aspects are important for enjoying these years and assuming the roles of adults. The purpose of the study was to examine the relationship between parental attachment, self-esteem, and the psychological well-being of adolescents.

The participants were 292 adolescents with ages ranging from 13 to 18 years. Inventory for parent and peer attachment (IPPA) by Armsden and Greenberg self-esteem scale by Rosenberg and psychological wellbeing scale by Ryff was used to measure the parental attachment, self-esteem, and psychological wellbeing in adolescents.

Results indicated that the correlation value of parental attachment and psychological wellbeing was found to be 0.306. The value of correlation value for self-esteem and psychological wellbeing was found to be 0.342.

A significant positive relationship was found between parental attachment, self-esteem, and psychological wellbeing. The mediation analysis has shown that self-esteem partially mediates the relationship between parental attachment and psychological wellbeing among adolescents.
