Home Environment

Robert Bradley, K. Kao

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Essential to well-being in adolescence is a nurturing and supportive home environment, one that fosters competence and adaptive functioning. This includes adequate structure, parental sensitivity and warmth, appropriate discipline and guidance, the provision of enriching materials and educative experiences, plus adequate nutrition. These aspects of the environment become increasingly important during adolescence as youth strive toward autonomy and self-identity.
