There were two aims of the present study. One aim was to examine maternal and adolescent perceptions of patterns of parenting interaction which were made up of clusters of parenting alliance and parenting practices, as well as the differences in adolescent problem behaviors among various patterns of parenting interaction. The other aim was to examine consistent or inconsistent patterns based on pairs of mother a nd adolescent perceptions of patterns of parenting interaction, as well as the differences of adolescent problem behaviors among these patterns. The subjects of the present study were 301 pairs ofjunior high school students and their mothers.

Adolescent perceptions of these three patterns were "high positive and cooperative pattern," "high negative and conflict pattern," and "low positive and low cooperative pattern." In addition, for maternal perceptions of patterns, adolescents in the "high negative and conflict pattern" showed significant higher levels of depression and aggression than adolescents in the "high positive and cooperative pattern." For adolescent perceptions of patterns, adolescents in the "high negative and conflict pattern" and "low positive and cooperative pattern" showed significant higher levels of depression and aggression than adolescents in "high positive and low cooperative pattern". Moreover, adolescent girls showed higher level of depression than adolescent boys. For both adolescent depression and aggression, "negative and consistent patterns" and "inconsistent patterns" showed higher levels than "positive and consistent patterns." The present study may improve our understanding of interactions of family subsystems and their ef
