Determining the Effects of Parent- Adolescents Relationship on the Psychological Wellbeing of Adolescents: A Case of Dagoretti South Sub-County

Abstract:

The study sought to determine the effects of parent-child relationship on the psychological wellbeing of adolescents: a case of Dagoretti South Sub-County. The study examined parental attachment, the perception of the adolescents towards their relationship with parents, communication between parents and adolescents and gender differences in relation to the psychological wellbeing of adolescents. A sample size of 100 adolescents aged 13-17 years was selected using simple random sampling technique. Data collection instruments used were questionnaires and standardized attitudinal scale/test and data was analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 21.0. The study revealed a positive and significant relationship between parent adolescent relationship (parental attachment, perceived parent adolescent relationship and parent adolescent communication) and adolescents’ psychological wellbeing as supported by beta coefficient 0.957, 3.902 and 0.258 respectively. This implied that a positive improvement in the parent-adolescent relationship had a positive effect on the adolescent psychological wellbeing. Further, the study showed that the probability of poor psychological wellbeing due to parent-adolescent relationship increased when one is female than when one is male. The study concludes that though adolescents value relationship with their parents and find it reassuring emotionally, they are disconnected and feel that their parents neither listen to them nor understand their thoughts. Further, that the probability of poor psychological wellbeing increases when one is female than when one is male. The study recommends parenting programs responsive to the needs of adolescents and future studies that address the effects of parent-adolescent relationship on the psychological wellbeing of adolescents.
