This study examines the relationship between parents’ sex differentiated behaviour and adolescent girls’ educational achievement and career interest in Lebialem Division. The sample comprised 652 adolescents selected from nine secondary schools in Lebialem Division. Data collected were subjected to descriptive and inferential statistical analysis using the statistical package for the social science (SPSS). The Results revealed “There is a significant relationship between parents’ sex differentiated behaviour and adolescent girls’ educational achievement and career interests. Based on this result, some recommendations were made; parents who are the earliest and most sustained source of contact with the children should be aware of the dangers involved in discriminating between their sons and daughters when education and career choice are concerned. They (parents) may be able to socialize the children in gender fair manner, send both boys and girls to school, and reduce the work load for girls at home so as to enable them have more time for studies like their brothers.
