CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

          Adolescent is a developmental period when a lot of change takes place, these changes could be physical, mental and social. Also adolescent is usually a time of excitement and of troubles and can thus be a confusing time. It is true that adolescents have different self-esteem, and the way they react to situation and circumstances surrounding them. While some are very receptive and others very aggressive and unfriendly.

          It has been noticed that some of these adolescents are maladjusted in behaviour and in their relationship with fellow adolescent and other members of the society. Some of these adolescent who have problem with their self-concepts are not able to adjust or cope emotionally. It is in recognition of this, that the national policy of education stated. In view of the apparent ignorance of many young people, about career prospects and in view of personality, maladjustment among school children, career offices and counselors should be appointed in post primary institution. As one of the function of guidance and counselling, in assisting maladjusted students.

          The training given to a child, to a large extent determine his or her self-concept. The parenting styles of individual also determine how the child will adjust to the society emotionally. There are different families. There is the single parent homes, the two parents homes and the multiple parents homes which is generally known as polygamy. In these homes you find different styles of parenting being used. These parenting style have a way of affecting the self-concept of individual adolescents and their emotional adjustment in the society.

          The parenting styles, goes a long way in determining how an individual sees his or herself, perception concerning his or her physical, social and psychological aspiration and emotional adjustment in the society in which he or she lives. It is therefore important to study the different parenting styles and ascertain how they determine the self-concept of the individual adolescent. It is also necessary to look at the way, this will help the individual to adjust emotionally to the society.

WHAT THEN IS PARENTING

          According to Cleaner Casiellino, Michinery and Terry Vilarcial [1995] parenting is the term summarizing set of behaviors involved across life, in the reactions among organisms that are usually the same and typically members of different but cohorts. Parenting interaction provide resources across the generational groups and functions in regard to domains individual survival reproduction, nature and socialization, this parenting is a complex process involving much more than a mother or father providing food and succor to an infant or child. Parenting involves bio-directional relationship between members of two or more generation and can extend through all major parts of the respective life spans of these groups which may engage all institution within a culture including education, economic, political and designed settings which the group left behind [Ford and Leaner Lager] “parenting is both a biological and social process.

          According to Bornstain [1995], the key functions of a child’s family are to raise the young person in a healthy as manner as possible. The parents role is to provide the child with safe, secure, nurturing, loving as well support the child’s environment, as one that allows the offspring to have a happy and healthy youth life. This sort of experience allows the youth to develop in knowledge, value, attitude and behaviour necessary to become an adult, making a productive contribution to self, family community and the larger society.

          What a parent does to fulfill these “duties” or roles is termed parenting in other words, parenting is a term summarizes behaviour of a person, usually mother or father in the process of raising a child given to the family.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

          According to Darling [1999] Development psychologists have interest in the way parent’s influences social and instrumental competence. It has also been said that parenting is the most difficult job, and the most important responsibility one will have in life.

          According to Kathic [1999] on clear guidelines above, the way of parenting has been based on, upbringing of children in appropriate building of positive self-concept without having emotional problems.

          According to Darling [1999] parenting is a difficult task that include a lot of specific behaviour that work individually and collectively to influence adolescent life.

          According to Fry [2004], many parents believe that the best way to bring up and rear a child especially the adolescent is by being oppressive, a commander, an authoritarian and autocratic. These parents believe that the adolescent should carry out all instructions as commanded, yet another set believe that they should be permissive or negligent as parents could such parenting style result in maladjustment? Nigerian adolescent with low self-concept and emotional problem, parents who are authoritative in their parenting styles have children who are more socially, emotionally and instrumentally competent than others who are non-authoritative.

          According to Baumrind [1991], the authoritarian families have adolescent who perform well in school, but involved in problem behaviour, self-esteem and high level of depression.

          According to Schwarz [1999] and Darling [1999], various researchers have low self esteem and low self-concept result from authoritarian family, the reluctant once perform poorly in school, and low level of depression. Which of these styles is known to have positive emotional developments? Could this be equally true of the respondents in this study? Or can the four parenting styles be merged to eliminate maladjustment in adolescent? Can two or three parenting styles be adopted for a balance adolescent life? 

          According to National Policy on Education [1998], one of the aims and objectives of the national policy on education, which is also linked to the training of the mind and the understanding of the world. It states also that, it is promotion of the physical and psychological development of all Nigerian children.
