COMMUNICATION BETWEEN MOTHERS-DAUGHTERS REGARDING EMOTIONAL CHANGES: ASSOCIATION OF FREQUENCY AND COMFORT
Keywords:Adolescents, Mother, Communication, Emotional Changes
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the association between the frequency of communication and the level of comfort mothers feel while discussing emotional changes with adolescents. Adolescents undergo significant physical, social, and psychological changes before reaching adulthood. The quality of parent-teenage communication is linked to handling various emotional changes in children. This type of communication can help minimize their risk of participating in risky activities. Their mothers may not support their daughters' decisions regarding sexual activity and illegal drug use—the present study comprised two blocks in Ballari District: Sandur and Hospet. A descriptive research design was used to achieve the study's objectives, which combined quantitative and qualitative methods. The interview schedule was used to collect data from the respondents. This research sampled a total of 200 respondents by random sampling.
