Parental Nurturance and Its Relationship with Adolescent Social Self-Esteem and Emotional Self-Efficacy
The present study was conducted to examine how Parental Nurturance contributed to Social Self-Esteem and Emotional Self-Efficacy of adolescents. A sample of 180 adolescents (90 males and 90 females) ranging from 11-19 years were selected using the method of convenient sampling representing North and South Goa. The Parental Nurturance Scale developed by John R Buri (1988), the Social Self-Esteem Scale (SSES) by Repišti & Kerla (2011, 2013), and the Emotional Self-Efficacy Scale for Adolescents (Youth ESES) by Qualter, Pamela, Pool, L. D., Gardner, K. J., Ashley-Kot, S., Wise, A. and Wols, A. (2015) were utilized to obtain quantitative data on the variables of the study. Data was statistically analysed using multiple correlation. Findings of the study revealed a weak positive relationship between Parental Nurturance and adolescent’s Social Self-Esteem and Emotional Self-Efficacy respectively. Implications of the study and suggestions for further research have been discussed.
