Olufunmilayo Tayo-Olajubutu, Samuel E. Oladipo


The present study examined effects of self-management strategy on discriminatory behavior against the girl-child. The study adopted a quasi-experimental, 2x2 factorial design and a total of 80 participants were systematically randomly selected from 2local government areas in a state in Nigeria. 40 of them were males and 40 females. Validated self-reported measures were used for data collection and two hypotheses were tested in the study using Analysis of Covariance. Result showed a significant difference in the gender discriminatory behavior of parents in the experimental and control groups after treatment, thus hypothesis one was accepted. Hypothesis 2 was also accepted because there was a significant difference in the discriminatory behavior between male and female parents in the CG, SMS and CRS after treatment. It was thus concluded that self-management strategy has significant effect on changing discriminatory behavior against the girl-child.
