The present study examined the relationship of parenting stress and social support on the resilience of Filipino adolescent mothers. Eighty first-time Filipino adolescent mothers aged 15-21 (M=18.56, SD=1.39) with only one child were obtained in the study and asked to answer a total of three scales which are the parental stress scale, the multidimensional scale perceived social support, and the resilience scale. The following criteria used for purposive sampling were: (a) participants must be a first-time parent and (b) the participant's child must be between the ages of four to thirty-six months old. These were obtained through coordinating with respective health district officers in Metro Manila and through an online referral system. The results of the study showed that parenting stress and social support are both significant predictors of adolescent resilience. Parenting stress was determined to have a strong inverse relationship to resilience while social support was determined to have a very strong linear relationship to resilience.
