This study explored the interest of parental culture upkeep, bilingualism, ethnic identity, and national identity for the well-being of adolescents in multicultural Indonesia. It concludes that parental culture upkeep, ethnic identity, and national identity are notable for the well-being of adolescents, whereas speaking the Bahasa (ethnic) language is unrelated with well-being and ethnic identity.
