Chapter 01 Introduction

Background of the Study

Every child has two places where the child spends most of his time during his childhood. These two places are school and home. At school teachers are responsible for the educational development of the child. On the other hand, parents play the important role in the socializing process, the overall development and growth of their child. Parents role in growing up a child be it a male or a female is very crucial. As it is their responsibility to bring up a child who has good habits, good behavior, has a decent personality and is a responsible citizen too. Due to increased divorce rates in society the number of children living in a single-parent home are increasing too. Studies have shown that the young kids of those families are influenced dramatically, both negatively and positively (Barker, 2003).“Seventy percent of all children will spend some or all of their childhood in single-parent families, and we know that the links between childhood environment and future success are strong”.

Significance of the study

The population is expected to grow to as much as 9 billion people by the year 2050. This increase in population is expected to put more pressure on the environment. Without people adopting sustainable practices, environmental concerns will grow faster. Sustainability is defined as satisfying the need of the present generation without compromising the needs for future generation. It takes into account environmental, economic and social aspects. The aim of this research is to analyse the behaviour of the single parent. What sorts of differences are observed in the single parent who divorced or window?
