Abstract: Following suggestions from prior research, this cross-sectional study examined whether the quality of adolescents’ romantic relationships, the quality of parent-adolescent relationships, adolescents' disclosure to their parents about their romantic relationships, and the frequency of parent-adolescent conflicts are associated with adolescents’ perceptions of privacy invasion. One hundred Dutch adolescents between the age of 15 and 20 years completed questionnaires about these topics. The data was examined with multiple regression analyses. This research showed that parental privacy invasion was associated with adolescents’ decrease disclosure towards parents, more conflicts between adolescents and their parents, and a lesser quality of the parent-adolescent relationship.
