INFLUENCE OF ADOLESCENT-PARENTAL CONFLICT ON THE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT OF SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN DELTA STATE

ABSTRACT

 Adolescent-parental conflict is a common phenomenon in many families in the society today. Hence, this study investigated the influence of adolescent-parental conflict on the academic achievement of secondary school students in Delta State using a correlational survey design. Four research questions and four hypotheses were formulated. Through purposive random sampling, Delta Central Senatorial district and its two education zones (Ughelli and Sapele) were sampled out of the three senatorial districts in Delta State. By stratified random sampling, a total of 800 SSI students (400 male and female adolescents each) from 20 out of 381 secondary schools in Delta State were selected for the study. The 800 adolescents used were further stratified into; 200 males and females each with high parental conflict and another 200 males and females each without parental conflict. The total number of respondents therefore was 800 adolescents out of 2,880 SSI students in Delta State with equal number of parents. Structured and validated questionnaire was used in collection of data from both adolescents and parents. SSI promotion examination scores in Mathematics and English Language of the students concerned were collected and used to answer research questions two and three. Adopted for testing, the null hypotheses 1 and 4 was Karl Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Coefficient. Null hypotheses 2 and 3 were tested using the Wilcoxon rank test and Man-Whitney tests. All the test statistics were subjected to the conventional 5% level of significance. The Mathematics and English Language scores of male and female students with high conflict were correlated. Also, scores of adolescents with and without parental conflicts were also correlated. The results showed that male adolescents having high conflict with their parents performed poorer than their female counterparts. Also, adolescents with high conflicts with their parents performed poorer than their counterparts without conflict. Based on these findings, recommendations were made.
