This study aimed to investigate the correlation between the life satisfaction of teenagers from single-parent households and their reported levels of social support from family, friends, and teachers. Additionally, the study sought to determine the predictive value of perceived social support factors from family, friends, and teachers on life satisfaction. In order to achieve the intended objective, the researchers employed the relational screening model, which is a quantitative research methodology. The study's sample comprised 115 students who were enrolled in high school, specifically in the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades, within the İskenderun district of Hatay province. The data was obtained through the utilization of the Personal Information Form, the Perceived Social Support Scale, and the Life Satisfaction Scale. The findings of the study indicate that there is no statistically significant variation in the average scores of the Life Satisfaction Scale based on the manner in which parents are separated, as well as the average scores of the Family, Friend, and Teacher sub-scales of the Perceived Social Support Scale. However, a significant association was observed between the average scores of the Life Satisfaction Scale and the average scores of the Family, Friend, and Teacher sub-scales of the Perceived Social Support Scale. Furthermore, the average scores of the Perceived Social Support Scale Family, Friend, and Teacher sub-scales were found to significantly predict 42% of the average scores of the Life Satisfaction Scale.
