Author(s): A Lakshmi Prakash and Dr. E Manjuvani
The present study is an attempt to study the perception of displaced adolescents about their family environment living in a R&R colony and compare them with the perception of nondisplaced adolescents living in a normal village. Two hundred and forty-two sample in the age group of 13 to 16 years age group studying 8th, 9th and 10th standards constituted the sample. Among the total sample 113 adolescents were from R&R colony and 129 adolescents were from normal village. Family environment scale by Bhatia and Chadda (1996) was used for data collection. Results revealed that the perception of home environment by adolescents of R&R colony significantly differed from the perception of home environment by adolescents of normal village in all dimensions except on conflict dimension. The scores revealed that the perception of home environment by normal village adolescents is comparatively higher on cohesion, expressiveness, independence, active recreation orientation and organisation dimension than the perception of R&R village adolescents. Whereas R&R colony adolescents perceived their family environment high on acceptance and caring and control dimension when compared to normal village adolescents. Conflict is the only one dimension on which adolescents of both the villages showed similar trend. It is interesting to note that adolescent boys and girls did not differ significantly on any dimension of family environment.
