The purpose of this study is to predict loneliness level of high school students with regard to perceived parental acceptance-rejection, maternal and paternal, and sibling relationship quality after controlling gender, age, grade, school type, field of study, birth order and number of siblings. Cluster random sampling was used and sample composed of 1451 participants (672 male, 779 female). Participants were mostly from Anatolian and Vocational high school students in Ankara and age varied between 14 and 19. Turkish versions of UCLA Loneliness Scale (Demir, 1989), Maternal Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaire-Child Short Form and Paternal Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaire-Child Short Form (Yılmaz & Erkman, 2008), Sibling Relationship Quality Questionnaire (Apalaci, 1995) and Demographic Information Form were administered to participants. Multiple hierarchical regression analysis was used. Results showed that 1.7% of the variance in loneliness was explained by model 1 including demographic variables but model 1 did not give significant results (R2 = .017, Finc (14, 1436) = .96, p >.05). After adding mother and father acceptance score in model 2, R2 was significant and 18.1% (R2 = .181, Finc (16, 1434) = 19.17, p < .001). In the model 3, sibling variables were added to the model and R2 change was significant and R2 was 19.6% (R2 = .196, Finc (20, 1430) = 16.396, p< .05). Mother acceptance 5.4%, father rejection 2.4%, sibling warmth 1%, sibling conflict 0.4% and sibling rivalry 0.3% variance explained in loneliness. The results will have implications for both counselors, developing programs to increase parental involvement in school and for future research.
