The thesis focuses on perceived educational attitudes of adolescents’ parents in relation to the development of the intellectual and creative potential of adolescents. Basic theories used to analyse this subject were: the parental attitudes typology by Anna Roe and Marvin Siegelman, the theory of fluid intelligence by Charles Spearman, and the theory of creativity by Stanisław Popek. The study has been conducted among pupils of a grammar school who were of legal age and come from villages or small towns. The following tests were used: the Parent-Child Relations Questionnaire (PCR), both “My mother” and “My father” versions, Raven's Progressive Matrices and KANH Questionnaire. The results indicate a correlation between protective and liberal attitudes of parents as perceived by the adolescents and their creativity and intelligence.
