In this study with correlational design, the psychometric characteristics of the Perceptions of Parents scale (POPS; Robbins, 1994) were investigated. Sample of high school students (340 female and 320 male) in Bojnourd were selected with Cluster sampling and completed POPS and Smith`s self-esteem Questionnaire (1967). Cronbach `s Alpha, test-retest coefficient, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis and Manova used for data analysis. Exploratory factor analysis showed that POPS consist of maternal involvement, maternal autonomy support, maternal warmth, father`s involvement, father`s autonomy support and father`s warmth. The extracted factor confirmed by Confirmatory factor analysis. Cronbach `s alpha was 0.59- 0.77 for mother`s subscales and 0.59- 0.76 for father`s subscales and test-retest coefficients (over a three week period) was 0.40- 0.80 for mother`s subscales and 0.38- 0.68 for father`s subscales. Manova indicated that there are significant differences in POPS subscales based on self-esteem degree and Gender. In sum, findings revealed that POPS have an appropriate factor structure and psychometric properties for Iranian high school students.
