Abstract: The purpose of the present research was to study the relationship between Family Environment, Peer Relations and Delinquent Change Tendencies among Adolescents. Data was taken from (n=30) adolescents through purposive sampling strategy. Family environment scale, adolescents peer relations instruments and the self-report delinquency scale were used as an assessment measure. The result showed that family environment (r = .14, p < .005) with delinquent change tendency, and, peer relations have significant positive (r = .12, p < .002) relationship with delinquent change tendency. However, the results for the regression analysis revealed that all models were significant. In the first step (ΔR2 = .02, F (1, 298) = .51, p = .000) family environment was a statistically significant predictor (β = .04, p = .000), implying that family environment predicts delinquent change tendency. In the second model (ΔR2 = -.06, F (2, 297) = 2.23, p < .004) resilience (β = -.11, p = .004) was significant predictor of delinquent change tendency. The study concluded that higher level of bad family environment and peer relations leads toward higher level of delinquent change tendency behavior which causes severe level of delinquent behaviours. The present study will help to understand to improve the family environment which delinquent behaviours among adolescents.
