Abstract:
This study examines the self concept and interpersonal relations of 409 Hispanic and Non-Hispanic adolescents in grades five and eight. Results reveal no significant differences in global self concept of Hispanic and Non-Hispanic adolescents. Fifth graders have significantly better global self concepts than eighth graders. There are no significant differences in the interpersonal relations of the Hispanic and Non-Hispanic adolescents. Fifth graders report significantly better Total Interpersonal Relations, as well as better relations with Mother and Teacher. Relations with Father are significantly better for males and for fifth graders. Significant grade interactions are seen for relations with Male Peers and Female Peers. A multiple regression revealed no clear shift from parents to peers as reference group influencing self concept.
