Parental Bonding and Psychological Well-Being among Young Adults
The study on Parental Bonding and Psychological Well-being was conducted in Sriperumbudur among 60 young adults. The tools used were Parental Bonding Instrument and Psychological General Well – being Index. The bonding or attachment that a child has with parents have a great impact on their personality traits and well – being. Children who have a secure attachment with their parents tend to be less at the risk of any mental disorders. Parents these days are both employed and the children are left with the servant maids or at crèches, wherein they lose the bonding that has to be received from their parents. In some cases the parents are over protective to the children and restrict them in almost every single thing. This lack of parental bonding or over protectiveness may affect the well – being of the child in the later years. The present study is to know the bonding style of parents with their children and the effect of it on the psychological well-being of the individual. The results indicated that there is a significant correlation between parental care, control and psychological well – being.
