The Impact of Adolescence on the Development of Moral Values

Lipi Mukhopadhyay [2]

Abstract: The study delves into the critical issue of 'values' in adolescents, shedding light on the complex factors and influences that shape the personality development, behavior, and overall well-being of young individuals. It underscores the importance of collective efforts aimed at mutual growth and competence-building, advocating for interdisciplinary and indigenous methodologies. The primary objective of this research is to analyze and promote values among students. It investigates the shifts in moral values among students and their implications on Indian academic institutions, family structures, lifestyles, and governance. To conduct this study, a sample of 400 school students from the cities of Delhi and Kolkata was carefully selected. A questionnaire measuring character strengths, adapted from Seligman?s VIA (2002), was administered to the participants. The findings of this research reveal notable distinctions between the two cities. Specifically, the Kolkata sample exhibited higher values in courage, integration, and teamwork compared to the Delhi sample. Conversely, when it comes to integrity and humanity, girls from Delhi scored higher than boys in both sample groups. The overall comparison of these two regions, Delhi and Kolkata, yields intriguing results. Students from Kolkata showcase greater character strengths in courage, integration, and teamwork, while respondents from Delhi excel in love of learning and humanity.
