Method: The research method was descriptive-correlational, and the statistical population included 49421 secondary school female students and their parent in Tehran in the 2016 year, among whom 290 were selected based on suggested formula by VanVoorhis & Morgan (2007) and considering the probability of sample loss by the available sampling method from Shahid Dastgheyb Girls' High School from District 13, Aien Islam Girls' High School from District 15 and School girls Azadegan from District 1. The study tools were Bagheri Parent-Child Communication Pattern Questionnaire (2013) and Young Schema Questionnaire-Short Form 1988 which were completed by students and Jones Irrational Beliefs Test (1968) which were completed by both parents. After removing of 63 distortions and 8 outlier questionnaire, the collected data were analyzed using hierarchical multivariate regression method. Results: The results showed that among the components of the father-child communication pattern, variables of the formality (β= 0.171), conditional value (β= 0.151) and interconnectedness (β= 0.312), and among the components of mother-child communication pattern, variables of the inflexibility (β= 0.181) and limitations (β= 0.155) and irrational beliefs of the mother (β= 0.196) positively predict the unrelenting standards/ hyper-criticalness maladaptive schema in adolescent girls (P= 0.001). Conclusion: It is essential to educate parents and create awareness about the contributing factors of unrelenting standards/hyper-criticalness maladaptive schema in adolescent, preventing the harm caused by maladaptive communication patterns and irrational beliefs of parents in many areas of adolescent life.
