Self-Image as the After-Effect of Relations between Children and Parents and Its Connection with a Tendency towards Addictions
A serious threat to young people is the relativity of moral norms and a passive attitude to life with a tendency towards auto-destructive behavior. A considerable number of young people prefer a model of life based on the principle of 'maximum enjoyment and minimum effort'. Family instability is becoming a fact of life. Parents devote very little time to their children and occupational emancipation often leads to a crisis in traditional authorities. Children's self-images are being moulded in these difficult family conditions, which should perform the function of integrating personality and also constitute the core of support. Therefore the general aim of the research was the preliminary penetration of permanent threats from the family (parental attitudes) and an analysis of some of the consequences which influence the formal and contextual aspects of self-image among young people. Another aim was to find the essential relations between self-image and inclination to addiction. The research revealed a notable interconnection between self-perception and parental attitudes describing about a 20% variability in specific domains of selfimage. But there are still many other factors that influence and clarify the scope of diversity within teenage self-images. A distinct difference which was observed between the two groups was the liability to develop inclinations to addictions.
