Abstract:

Social maturity makes an individual skilled and competent to be a civilized member of society. It means knowing what to do and striving for it by following role models to reach the desired level of acceptable social behaviour. Although there are numerous agents play their respective parts in development of social maturity. Mothers are considered to be important in encouraging the child on different aspects as mothers are considered to be the first whom the child feels, observes and learns with. The focus of the present paper is on the study of gender and age differences in encouragement of social maturity among children in poverty setting in slums of Jammu city. The sample comprised 400 children in the age of 3-6 years which were further divided into two groups i.e. 200 Anganwadi children (attending preschool component of ICDS) and 200 Home Based children (not going to ICDS centres or availing any preschool programme). Encouragement of social maturity provided to children by mothers was studied by using modified stimulation scale primarily based on Mohite Home Inventory (MHI). The study employed quantitative research design. The data obtained was analysed by using mean scores, standard deviation and t-test for this component. The results revealed the difference on encouragement of social maturity among children 4-5 years and 5-6 years of age where HBG received more encouragement from their mothers in respect of asking to do household work, cooperation and pro-social qualities. Age trend on this indicator also showed significant difference on all the aspects of encouragement of social maturity except promoting prosocial qualities in AWG and asking child to take care of siblings among HBG.
