The present study aims to investigate the protective role of parental (maternal and paternal) acceptance against peer rejection and the protective role of peer acceptance against parental rejection among children and adolescents. Children from third, fourth, and fifth grades (N = 196), adolescents from ninth, tenth, and eleventh grades (N = 119), and their mothers (N = 315) participated in the study. Children’s and adolescents’ reports on perceptions of parental and peer acceptance and rejection and mothers’ reports on their children’s externalizing and internalizing problems were measured. Hierarchical regression analyses and simple slope analyses were conducted. The findings demonstrated that maternal acceptance has a protective role in the association between peer rejection and externalizing problems for children. Peer acceptance has a protective role in the association between paternal rejection and externalizing problems for adolescents, and internalizing problems for adolescent girls. Peer acceptance might also be a risk factor for children with high paternal rejection and for adolescents with high maternal rejection.
