ABSTRACT

The word adolescenceis derived from the Latin  word “adolescere” which means “to grow up”. It is a transitional stage of physical and psychological human development that generally occurs during the period of puberty to legal adulthood. Psychological well-being is perhaps the most extensively used construct among psychologists and mental health professionals. However, theorists have found that the concept of psychological well-being (PWB) is much more complex and controversial. Practically speaking, psychological well-being serves as an umbrella term for many constructs that assess psychological functioning (Girum, 2012). The objective of the present investigation was to examine the efficacy of working status of mothers on various dimensions of Psychological well-being of adolescents. A sample consisting of 80 participant’s age range between 14 to 16 years has been taken into consideration from Ahmedabad District.  To measure the Psychological well-being a scale developed by Sisodia, D. S., and Choudhary,P. has been used to collect primary data. To calculate and interpret the scores, t-test was used. Findings of the study exposed that adolescents with working and non-working mothers differ on psychological well-being traits like satisfaction, efficiency, sociability, and mental health. Both groups of adolescents have similar characteristics on dimension interpersonal relations. Work can produce a positive and negative effect on parenting, work-related stress can spill over and hamper parenting, but a sense of well-being produced by work can lead to more positive parenting.
