Human development is characterized by several distinct and unique stages beginning with conception and ending at death. Like all stages of human growth and development, adolescence is an important stage. The present paper gives an overview of the studies and research work related to adolescent well-being and family structure.

The base of any coping strategy lies in the family support from the one, who is close to the person, may it be family or friends. The kind of well-being a person group with depends on how strong his family support is. If the support is unconditionally strong, it leads to the positive well-being of person and in turn has pleasure, happiness and satisfaction.
