A Comparative Study on Parent-Adolescent Relationship among Government and Private School Girls
Abstract: Adolescent period is one which perplexed parents, psychologists and adolescents themselves for many years. Adolescents experience a decline in the desire for companionship with their parents, experience an increase in conflict and distance in relationship with their parents. Adolescents are most likely to become autonomous if their parents keep their rules to a reasonable minimum, explain them, and continue to be warm and supportive. When parents are rejecting and over strict or rejecting that teenagers are most likely to rebel and get into trouble. The magnitude of this disturbance was still under debate within the body of research that examines the relationship between adolescents and their parents. Keeping this as a background, the present study was conducted with an objective to study parent adolescent relationship among government and private school girls from Jammu city. The sample comprised of 400 adolescent girls, selected randomly from government and private schools of Jammu with 200 girls from each school. Parent-Child relationship Scale developed by Nalini Rao (1989) was used as a tool for data collection. Data was analysed by using Mean, S. D. and T-test. The result reveals significant difference between the two groups on the domain Protecting for both fathers as well as mothers. In case of mothers, highly significant difference was obtained on the domains of Object Punishment and Indifferent, while significant difference was seen on the domain Symbolic Punishment. It can be concluded that relationship between the parents and adolescents was to some extent influenced by the type of school.
