The ability to take the perspective of other, to see and imagine how the world would look like seen through other eyes is an important developmental achievement. In piagetian research tradition this ability is described as 'interpersonal decentration'. In current paper the authoress proposes to understand perspective taking in a narrative way, as expressed in the ability to tell life stories from the perspective of the different characters that take part in the events. This ability evolves in the lifespan, especially in the adolescence. Presented research concerns taking the perspective of the parent in adolescent narratives about the parental home. Participants from three different age groups: 13-16, 16-19, 19-24 - all of them students of different Warsaw schools and Warsaw University, took part in the research and provided written narratives concerning their parents. The results show that with age and self-rated sense of adulthood the ability to include the perspective of the parents improves. Results of a qualitative content analysis of the narratives are also presented.
