The current study aimed to carry out a systematic review to map the published research articles on adolescents’ and young adults’ gratitude and its link with parent-child relationship. From the systematic search in two different databases (PsycINFO and Scopus), following the PRISMA guidelines it was possible to select 17 articles which met the inclusion criteria. A data driven thematic analysis was conducted to summarize the main themes emerging from the articles included. The data highlighted strengths and limitations of the study of gratitude in parent-child relationship. Implications of the results and guidelines for future studies are also provided.
