ABSTRACT

The present study was conducted to examine the role of Adolescent’s Perception of Father’s Nurturance on Self- efficacy and Academic Motivation. It also aimed at exploring whether Adolescent Perception of Father’s Nurturance differs in relation to type of family and religion. A total of 200 adolescents from North and South Goa (91 females and 109 males) between the ages of 16-18 years were selected for the purpose of the study. The Nurturant Fathering Scale (FNS) by Finley & Schwartz; The Self- Efficacy Questionnaire for Children (SEQ-C) by Muris and The Academic Motivation Scale for High School (AMS-HS-28) version by Vallerand et al were administered to obtain quantitative data on the variables.  The data was analyzed with the help of z- test, Pearson Correlation and ANOVA. Results of the study revealed that there is a weak positive correlation between Adolescent’s Perception of Father’s Nurturance and Self-Efficacy and Academic Motivation. With respect to type of family, no difference was found in Adolescent Perception of Father’s Nurturance. However, a significant difference in the same was found in relation to religion. Limitations of the study and implications for future research have been discussed.
