Family is the first institution in the human society; it is the only relationship that provides security and support without any rewards in return. The effectiveness of family functioning in conditioning the children's personality and social development has an outstanding importance (Roelfse & Middleton, 1985). The family interactions play an important role in the development of an individual. These interactions and interpersonal relationships are seen between parents, parent and child, siblings, and other relative or person living in the household. The healthy functioning of these interaction patterns enhances mental health of the individual. The present study was conducted to find out the extent to which family relationship has an impact on general well-being in adolescents and young adults, and to understand the impact of family relationship variable on general well-being in adolescents and young adults. The results revealed that the amount of time and energy spent by mother and father on directing and controlling the adolescents or young adults is relatively more in this group. It was also found that the degree of independence and encouragement and believing in the capacity of these adolescents or young adults in this group to assume responsibility would have an influence on the general well-being.

Abstract


Family is the first institution in the human society; it is the only relationship that provides security and support without any rewards in return. The effectiveness of family functioning in conditioning the children's personality and social development has an outstanding importance (Roelfse & Middleton, 1985). The family interactions play an important role in the development of an individual. These interactions and interpersonal relationships are seen between parents, parent and child, siblings, and other relative or person living in the household. The healthy functioning of these interaction patterns enhances mental health of the individual. The present study was conducted to find out the extent to which family relationship has an impact on general well-being in adolescents and young adults, and to understand the impact of family relationship variable on general well-being in adolescents and young adults. The results revealed that the amount of time and energy spent by mother and father on directing and controlling the adolescents or young adults is relatively more in this group. It was also found that the degree of independence and encouragement and believing in the capacity of these adolescents or young adults in this group to assume responsibility would have an influence on the general well-being.
