A Comparative Study on Adjustment between Obese and Non Obese Children
We conducted a study on adjustment between obese and non-obese children. We used Adjustment Inventory for School Students (AISS) by A.K.P.Sinha and R.P.Singh and information schedule for collecting information regarding their physical activity, dietary patterns, lifestyle, etc. Results revealed that there has been a significant difference in the emotional, social and educational adjustment between obese and non-obese children. The mean value of different dimensions of adjustment of non-obese children is higher than obese children. The correlation value indicated a significant relationship between the scores of BMI and adjustment. Thus good health status, healthy diet, regular exercise, and physical activities have positive effects on adjustment of children. It may be concluded that healthy life style patterns may prevent obesity amongst children.
