Title Self-Esteem of Adolescents: A Comparison of Monogamous and Polygamous Families
Creator Riaz, Mah Nazir
Description The present study was carried out to investigate whether self-esteem of adolescents in N. W.F.P. (Pakistan) varies directly with perceived maternal acceptance-rejection. It was assumed that significant mean differences in Parental Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaire (Haque, 1981) as well as Self-esteem Questionnaire (Rohner, Saaverda, and Granum, 1980) scores will be found between adolescents recalling their step-mothers as being low warm (high scorers) as compared to adolescents recalling their mothers being high warm (low scorers). The sample consisted of 100 adolescents including an equal number of boys and girls from monogamous (both-parent) families and polygamous (step-parent) families. Significant differences in attitude of mothers and step-mothers were found. Compared to polygamous families, subjects in monogamous families have high self-esteem.
