This research proposed to establish to what extent intrafamily relationships and parenting styles predict adolescent antisocial behaviors. Quantitative study with causal correlational design. Two standardized scales and a questionnaire were applied to 153 secondary school students. The descriptive results revealed that in interpersonal relationships the regular level predominated with 86.27%, in parenting styles the high range prevailed with 84.97% and in antisocial behaviors the low interval predominated with 97.39%. The inferential results using Spearman’s Rho yielded -0.221** (Sig.=0.006<0.01), indicating an inverse, low, and significant correlation between intrafamily relationships and antisocial behaviors; not finding significant correlation between the other variables. Likewise, multiple linear regression modeling revealed that intrafamily relationships turned out to be a strong predictor that explains the variability of antisocial behaviors in 71% (Sig.=0.029< 0.05).
