In early adolescence, children experience significant changes in several aspects of their lives, including changes in social relationship, whether in relationship with family or friends. Those changes may cause adolescents to encounter adaptation problems. Adolescents need a positive relational self-esteem to adapt well to changes. This study examined the contribution of perceived father involvement towards relational self-esteem in early adolescence. Father involvement was measured using Nurturant Fathering Scale and Father Involvement Scale (Reported), while relational self-esteem was measured using Relational Self-Esteem Scale. The participants of this study were adolescents aged 12-15 years (N=162). The results indicated that father nurturance was a significant predictor of relational self-esteem but father involvement was not. In addition, relational self-esteem was neither affected by children’s characteristics, such as age or gender, nor by family size and parent’s characteristics, such as age, occupation, and education level.
