Phenomenal Change And Adolescents’ Psychological Disinterest In Commitments: A Concern For TheFamily Traditions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The phenomenal changes such as biological, physical, social, technological and global changes, vitally affect thepsychological uncertainty and pre-occupation in the minds of the adolescents. (Leckman et al., 2002, p.324). Alethargic attitude, avoidance of responsibility creeps into their system during this period, leading them to moresocialising and less psychological commitments. (Jakubowski & Dembo, 2004). Researches show thatAdolescents who were isolating themselves from family events and desiring only social events outside familytend to develop ‘low levels of commitment and self-regulatory resources, and they perceived their parents asbeing low in trust, openness, and supervision.’ (Berzonsky 2004b; 2007, p.338). This is becoming a serioussocial concern for the future of the traditional families. “Indeed adolescence can present new challenges tofamilies, as this is a period of many transitions”. (Holden et al., 2011. p.139). Hence it calls for a serious globalassessment and concern for the family tradition.
