PARENTING AND ADOLESCENT BEHAVIOUR : FEEDBACK FROM THE CLASSROOM

Dr. Raju Narayana Swamy

 

 

ABSTRACT

The foremost task of parenting is adequate socialization of children. The functions of parenting greatly control how children grow up and mature. This task requires parental expectations and guidance that change with the development of the child to support positive child outcomes. Among the most powerful predictors of mental health problems among adolescents are poor family relationships. Since the early nineties, quantitative empirical studies have been performed to assess the level of parents’ involvement. Knowing what motivates some children with behaviour problems in the classrooms can help educators and parents deal with the situation and move towards a positive outcome. This study uses qualitative measures for parent involvement analysis. In general, the results of the current study did not support that the authoritative parenting style would be negatively related to children’s intrinsic motivation. Adolescents from disengaged homes were less interested in studies and less successful in school.
