Self-efficacy refers to beliefs about one’s capabilities to learn or perform behaviors at different areas such as academic, social and emotional. Thereby self-efficacy in adolescents can be related with their subjective well-being, defined as a person’s cognitive and affective evaluations of his life. The second important factor that can be related with adolescents’ subjective well-being is their parents’ self-perception of their parental roles on the level of competence, role satisfaction, investment and role balance. On this basis the aim of this study is to investigate the relations among self-efficacy in adolescents, self- perception of parental role and adolescents’ subjective well-being. The research group was conducted by 390 adolescents aged between 12 and 17 and their parents. Data was collected with Demographical Information Form, Self-Efficacy Scale for Children, Self-Perception of Parental Scale and Adolescent Subjective Well-Being Scale. The findings indicated that academic self-efficacy, social self-efficacy, emotional self-efficacy and competence of mother were predicting adolescents’ subjective well-being significantly.
