Abstract:
This study focused on the correlates of child rearing techniques and peer group influences on the anti-social behavior of adolescents in Rumuokoro, Obio akpor LGA of Rivers State. One hundred and eighty adolescents participated in the study. Questionnaire was used to obtain data. Data were analyzed using frequencies, percentages, means and standard deviation. ANOVA was used to test the difference between sexes and significance was set at p<0.05. The results showed among others that the correlates of childrearing techniques and peer group influence include observation of curfew at home (1.56±0.95), involve parents in decision making (2.54±0.88), night clubbing (2.34±0.32) and smoking (1.88±0.31). Parents should put more effort to ensure that their children are adequately provided for and morally groomed.
