Abstract: This study analyzed adolescents' self-representations construction process, relying on the Looking Glass Self Hypothesis (LGSH), within parent-child relationships - that is, the mediating role of mothers' and fathers' reflected appraisals (i.e., adolescents' perceptions of their parents' appraisals of them) in associations between parents' actual appraisals and adolescents' self-representations. Participants were 221 adolescents, 12-16 years old, and both their parents. The standard paradigm was used to measure the LGSH elements: self-representations were measured with the Self-Representation Questionnaire for Adolescents, which was reworded to measure parents' actual and reflected appraisals. Structural equation modeling with bootstrap estimation supported the LGSH for all self-representation domains under analysis. Results are discussed considering the specificities of the adolescent-mother and adolescent-father relationships, and the different self-representation domains analized.
