ABSTRACT

In this study, we focus on the relationship between the home environment and the self-concept. Before entering this current reality, children need to maintain a good atmosphere at home as it is the primary school an adolescent gets before going in to this current reality and also how he sees himself in that environment. Home Environment scale (HM) by Akhter and Saxena (2011) and Self-concept scale by S.P. Ahluwalia (2002) has been used for data collection. The study comprised of a small sample of 120 students of three Higher Secondary Schools, out of which 60 boys and 60 girls are randomly selected from Government and Private schools of Jammu city. Correlation and t-test was used to find out the relationship and difference between the scores of two groups of secondary school students. The results revealed that there is significant difference in home environment and self-concept school students based on their gender and also significant relationship has been found between home environment and self-concept of school students.
