The main purpose of the study presented in this paper was to recognize the relation between the adolescents' perception of parental attitudes and the level of aggression in the behavior of the girls and boys. The research was carried out on 86 adolescents between the ages of 17 and 18. All subjects were secondary school students from an urban environment. The following methods were used: the Questionnaire on the Perception of Parental Attitudes (by Plopa) and the Questionnaire on the Aggression Level (by Wójcik). The obtained statistical analyses showed that the majority of adolescents who perceive parental attitudes to be incorrect have a higher level of aggressive behavior. But comparative analyses of the data collected for girls and boys indicate that the relation between the perception of parental attitudes and the level of aggression is significant only in the girls.
