The main aim of this study is to investigate role of adolescent’s characteristics such as psychological reactance (PR) and filial piety (FP) in the relationship between parental control and adolescent’s psychosocial functioning. Two studies were performed in this scope. In the first study, the roles of PR and FP were investigated in the relationship between parental control (behavioral, psychological and external) and adolescent’s adjustment (behavioral conduct, self-worth, depressive symptoms). In the second study, participants rated their motivation, satisfaction of basic needs, and intention to study more after reading a vignette about an intrusive maternal control following an academic failure. Sample of the first study included 516 adolescents (54.46% girls, 45.54% boys, Rangeage = 11-18, x̅age = 13.82, sd = 1.42) from 7th (29.46%), 8th (23.26%), 9th (22.29%) and 10th (25%) grades. Sample size for the second study was 265 drawn from the first study. The study conducted at schools of Ankara city center. The first study showed that participants with high PR and low FP had the lowest psychosocial functioning. Results of the path analysis indicated that while behavioral control was related with satisfying behavioral conduct both directly and indirectly via FP, psychological and external control were indirectly related with psychosocial dsyfunctioning via PR. Additionally, second study showed that PR and FP related with different motivational processes. Path analysis in the second study demonstrated that in case of an intrusively controlling parenting, FP was related with intention to study more or differently via basic need satisfaction and then both controlled and autonomous motivation. Yet, PR was related with intention to study more or differently via basic need frustration and then controlled motivation. Investigation of adolescent characteristics enhanced our understanding of parent-adolescent relationships and including two concepts from distinct cultures helped us to interpret influences of parental control from a different standpoint.
