The family is the oldest and the most important of all the institutions that man has devised to regulate and integrate his behaviour as he strives to satisfy his basic needs. Its key position rests on its multiple functions in relation to overall well-being. Therefore, it would emerge that not only the social and physical well-being of the individual is taken care of by the family, but the psychological well-being as well. Because children's lives are centered initially within their families, the family environment becomes the primary agent of socialization. The family environment involves the circumstances and social conditions within families. Since each family is made up of different individuals in a different setting, each family environment is unique. The environments can differ in many ways which directly or indirectly affects the development of youth. The study examined the assessment of family environment of rural youth. The total sample for the present study consists of 40 youth from five operational villages of AICRP, i.e., Nohra, Lakhawali, Maanpura, Bhilwara, and Dangio ka Guda. These youth belonged to the age group of 14-24 years. Frequency and Percentage distribution was used for statistical analysis. Results revealed that overall family environment of rural youth were poor in the aspects of relationship dimensions, personal growth dimensions and system maintainence dimensions.

Abstract


The family is the oldest and the most important of all the institutions that man has devised to regulate and integrate his behaviour as he strives to satisfy his basic needs. Its key position rests on its multiple functions in relation to overall well-being. Therefore, it would emerge that not only the social and physical well-being of the individual is taken care of by the family, but the psychological well-being as well. Because children's lives are centered initially within their families, the family environment becomes the primary agent of socialization. The family environment involves the circumstances and social conditions within families. Since each family is made up of different individuals in a different setting, each family environment is unique. The environments can differ in many ways which directly or indirectly affects the development of youth. The study examined the assessment of family environment of rural youth. The total sample for the present study consists of 40 youth from five operational villages of AICRP, i.e., Nohra, Lakhawali, Maanpura, Bhilwara, and Dangio ka Guda. These youth belonged to the age group of 14-24 years. Frequency and Percentage distribution was used for statistical analysis. Results revealed that overall family environment of rural youth were poor in the aspects of relationship dimensions, personal growth dimensions and system maintainence dimensions.
