Study of Adolescent Stress In Relation To Grade, Gender and Perceived School and Home Environments
Kapani and Rao’s (2007), research highlights the significant role that family functioning plays in relation to attachment style and psychological distress. For healthy family functioning, there needs to be a focus on strengthening the emotional bonding of members within the family; improving interpersonal communication within the family; enhancing families’ relatedness with others in society and creating an atmosphere which promotes individual growth and freedom. Therefore, the major implication of the study is that it highlights the need to focus on family education and parenting skills training to prevent the development of vulnerability and to promote positive individual and familial well-being. Warner (2008) found that negative effects of stress at home lingers and affects teenagers’ academic performance at school.
