ABSTRACT

Supportive social interactions have an important influence on adolescents’ happiness, self-regard, and well-being. The current research study investigated the association of Friendship-quality, Self-esteem, and Happiness of Adolescents.  The sample of the study consisted of 100 adolescents (50girls and 50 boys) studying in Aligarh. Convenient sampling was used for collecting the data. Independent samples t-test was used to find out gender differences on variables: Friendship Quality, Self-esteem, and Happiness. Pearson Product Moment was carried out to find associations among Friendship Quality and its dimensions (safety, closeness, acceptance and help), Self-esteem, and Happiness. The results showed gender differences in friendship quality and happiness, but there were no gender differences in self-esteem. Positive intercorrelations were found among friendship quality and its dimensions (safety, closeness, acceptance, and help) and self-esteem. Friendships that are comfortable and close aid in the development of a person’s sense of happiness and self-esteem.
