Abstract


The text presents research on conflicts between young people and their parents/guardians recognized as a trigger for young people’s antisocial behavior. The research was carried out among Polish high school youth (middle and high school) and their parents. In total 150 people participated in the study. The study was based on the author’s questionnaire addressed to parents and the scale of social maladjustment developed by Lesław Pytka, addressed to young people. The aim of the study was to indicate the existence of possible correlation between conflicts of youth with parents/guardians and manifested antisocial behavior. The study referred to those antisocial behaviors that are most often manifested by young people. These are: physical aggression, verbal aggression, alcohol consumption, truancy and atypical forms of sexual behavior. The statistical analysis was based on the IBM SPSS program.
General conclusions from the study: conflicts of young people with parents/guardians determine the manifestations of antisocial behavior, but this significance has not been fully confirmed for all assumed variables.

Keywords
