The present study focuses on the relationship between parental bonding and adolescents' risk-takingbehavior. We will show that parental love is predictive of several direct and indirect forms of adolescents' risk taking. Subjects who had received more parental love during childhood were lesslikely to get in dangerous situations, less likely to get injured, and less likely to apply to physical violence for solving conflicts, compared to those with less parental love. They smoked less frequently, consumed less alcohol and used drugs much seldom. These findings were interpreted on an evolutionary framework based on Belsky et al.'s theory. Violence, risk-taking, and noncompliance are considered as ultimate means of acquiring resources for those who loose less than their more beloved peers. A possible alternative explanation is discussed.
