Parent-school relationships, student-teacher relationships, peer relationships, parent-child relationships, relationships with relatives and relationships with the neighborhood were studied at the microsystem level. Data were collected by the use of semi-structured interviews. Interview forms were given to a total of 26 parents whose children attended İlkkurşun Elementary School, in Karabağlar, İzmir. Data were analyzed using content analysis. Results showed that families perceived their relationships with siblings, parents, and with children as intimate relations, whereas relationships with school, teachers, neighbors and peers were perceived as formal relations.
