Abstract

The aim of the current study was to assess the impact of life skills education on self-esteem among adolescents in Children’s Home. The design was experimental and used a pre-test/ post-test design with a control group. Sixty adolescents (30 males and 30 females) from Children’s Home comprised the experimental group (N=30) and control group (N= 30) who were selected from Children’s Homes in Kannur district, Kerala. A life skills education programme was prepared and included sessions towards improving self-esteem among adolescents in the age group 13-15 years. The Rosenberg’s Self-Esteem Scale (1965) was administered before and after the life skills education programme to the adolescents. The results indicate that there was a significant difference between the experimental and control group in their self-esteem after life skills education programme including gender differences. The implication of the study reiterates that the inclusion of life skills as part of the curriculum for adolescents residing in Children’s Home plays a role in enhancing self- esteem.
