ABSTRACT

 The main purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of polygamy on the behaviour patterns of in-school adolescent as expressed by secondary school teachers in Ilorin metropolis. The study also investigated whether or not there would be significant difference on the perception of respondent on the basis of gender, religion, marital status and educational qualification. A descriptive survey research procedure was adopted for the study. The purposive sampling and stratified random sampling techniques were used to draw a sample of 100 secondary school teachers in Ilorin metropolis Kwara state. The purposive sampling was used to select ten secondary schools in Ilorin metropolis. The main research instrument employed for data collection was “Influence of Polygamy on Behaviour Patterns of Adolescent Questionnaire” (IPAQ). Five research questions were raised and four research hypotheses were formulated and tested. Data collected were computed using frequency counts, percentages, t-test and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The hypotheses were tested at the 0.05 alpha level. The findings of the study indicated that there is no significant difference in the influence of polygamy on the behaviour patterns of in-school adolescents as expressed by the respondents on the basis of gender, religion, marital status and educational qualification. It was recommended that there is the need for stakeholders, especially the school counsellors and teachers to give adequate attention to students’ developmental challenges and adolescents in secondary school should be exposed to counselling that will help them resolve family issues that could cause emotional problems. More so, students from polygamous homes should be helped to develop a positive self-image and handle an overzealous attitude that could lead to unnecessary competition among siblings.
