The presented results are a part of the scientific project entitled “Prevention of Behavior Disorders in Local Community” conducted by The Faculty of Education and Rehabilitation Sciences of the University of Zagreb, Croatia, and The Administrative Department of Health Care and Social Welfare of The County of Istria, Croatia.
Aim of this paper is to determine is there a difference between youth and parents perception of family in the frame of the concept of risk and protective factor. The sample consisted of 489 youths and 407 of their parents (N=896). Factor analysis and discriminative analysis were conducted. Results showed that there are differences in the perception of family environment between youth and their parents in the fields of family communication (negotiation, conversation), closeness/trust between youth and their parents, frequency of family conflicts, child acceptance, parental monitoring and peaceful conflict resolution in family. In all mentioned fields youth perceived more risk then their parents. These findings, as well as the parents role in family, can lead to conclusion that there is a need for enhancement of parent role through enhancement of parental skills.
