A new study led by a Sociologist of Brown University, Gregory Elliott, has claimed that family oriented kids are less likely to be part of violence against family members. Suck kids believe that they matter a lot to their family members. The feeling of ‘mattering’ includes three components awareness, importance, and reliance. Kids who have such feeling have a realization of the fact that their family members invest time and resources in them.
The study involved 2,004 adolescents aged between 11 and 18 who were interviewed telephonically as part of the 2000 Youth Risk Behaviour Survey. The findings revealed that kids or adolescents who fail to realize that they matter to their family members are most likely to engage in violence against the family members.
The findings also reveal that girls hit the members more than boys; kids from larger families are more likely to be violent. The study also claims that kids whose parents did their post-graduation are more likely to be violent as compared to those whose parents did not complete their high school.
The research has also claimed that the concept of ‘mattering’ has an impact on the self-esteem and attitude of a kid.
