A STUDY ON INTER-PARENTAL CONFLICT AND AGGRESSION AMONG UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
Parental conflicts have a great impact on the learning and behavior of students. Thus, the current study intended to explore the relationship between perceived inter-parental conflict and aggression among university students. To draw the sample of study stratified proportionate sampling method was applied and 316 university students (age range 17-23 years) were included in study. Children’s Perceived Inter-parental Conflict Scale (age range 6-25 years) and Perry Aggression Questionnaire (age range 15-25years) were used to measure study variables. Data were examined by using descriptive statistics, correlation, regression analysis, t-test, and ANOVA. Findings highlighted that there is a significant positive correlation between perceived inertparental conflict and aggression among university students (r=.397, p<0.05). Furthermore, regression analysis revealed a significant predictive relationship between inter-parental conflicts and aggression (R²=.15, F=57.88, p<0.001). Whereas, the results of t-test and ANOVA revealed that demographic features like gender, household type and living with genetic parents and step parents have no substantial role in inter-parental conflict and aggression.
