The present research is a study of the relationship between parents' perfectionism with guidance and high school female students' self-esteem in Khoda Bandeh, Iran. There were 220 students and their parents who participated in this study. Parents were asked to complete the Ahvaz Perfectionism Scale; students were requested to complete the Eysenck Self-esteem Questionnaire in order to evaluate their level of selfesteem. We applied Spearman correlation, step by step multiple regression and the t-test for data analyses. The obtained results showed a meaningful difference in perfectionism between fathers and mothers. There was a meaningful relationship between parents' perfectionism and student’s self-esteem, however parents' perfectionism was not singly predictive of students' self-esteem. Parents' Perfectionism, together, can somewhat predicate self-esteem at students.
