Adolescence attachment towards parents and peers and its impact on academics performance
Author(s): Shalini Singh
People cannot live alone in society. The need of social belongingness attached them and they feel affiliation for others. This need for affiliation is based on genetics or experience. It constitutes a relatively stable trait or behavior. Basically people need social contacts that suit them. The person’s first contact is with parents and then with friends. Parent attachment is stronger during infancy and childhood whereas friend’s attachment is strong during adolescence. Attachment level varies with the ages and stages of life. Parental and peer attachment have been shown to affect students’ academic performance and educational outcomes. Although low attachment to parents and peers was not the single predictor of poor academic performance, strong attachment was found to influence the college students’ sense of self and promoted higher self-esteem.
