This study aimed to clarify the relations between awareness of and attitude toward parental aging from late adolescence to early adulthood in Japan. An online survey was conducted with 800 participants aged 20-39 years, and the data were analyzed by exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. Awareness of “decline in parents’ activity” and “parents’ psychological maturation” were extracted for awareness of parental aging. Four attitudes toward parental aging were extracted: “caring about aging parents,” “sadness about parental aging,” “anxiety over parents’ old age,” and “generativity evoked by parental aging.” Structural equation modeling revealed that awareness of decline in parents’ activity was positively associated with sadness about paternal aging as well as anxiety over parents’ old age. Awareness of parents’ psychological maturation was positively associated with generativity evoked by parental aging. Additionally, awareness of parents’ psychological maturation was positively associated with caring about aging parents, except for women in their 20s and 30s regarding their fathers and mothers, respectively. These associations differed according to the type of parent-child relationship and the child’s age group.
