cellphone, often purchased by their parents, which affects the dynamic of parent child relationship. Naomi Barons (2006) an American University, Professor of linguistics who has studied the effect of technology on peoples inter personal and family relationships found that technology have allowed adolescents to be more autonomous from their parents and they are less interested in having face to face interactions and it is impacting the social lives of children. The fourth objective of the study was to find out the relationship between electronic gadget excessive use and academic performance among adolescents excessively using electronic gadget. Table 6 depicts the relationship between electronic gadget excessive use and academic performance. The obtained ‘r’ value for cell phone ( r = -0.265), television (r= -0.213) videogames (r = -0.269), Internet (r = -0.262), which was significant at 0.05 level. It implies that there is a relationship between electronic gadget excessive use and academic performance. Since the obtained ‘r’ value is higher than the table value. Thus the researcher accepts the research hypothesis and rejects the null Hypothesis. These findings were consistent with the study done by Reddy, D.Janarthna, (2001) on Media & its impact on Academic Performance. The study revealed that regular use of Media in 80% children had resulted in lower grades.

71 The fifth objective of the study was to find out the relationship between electronic gadget excessive use and family interaction. Table-5, depicts the relationship between electronic gadget excessive use and family interaction. The obtained ‘r’ value for Cell phone (r = - 0.211), Television (r=- 0.249), video games (r =- 0.475), Internet (r =- 0.436), Overall (r= -0.461) which was significant at 0.05 level. It implies that there is a relationship between electronic gadget excessive use and family interaction. Since the obtained ‘r’ value is higher than the table value. So the researcher accepts the research hypothesis and rejects the null hypothesis. The sixth objective of the study was to find out Association between electronic gadget excessive use and demographic variables. Association between Cell phone and Demographic variables. Tables 7(a) shows that there was no Association between the electronic gadget use on “Cell phone” and demographic variables. Therefore the researcher rejected the research hypothesis and accepted the null hypothesis. Association between Television and Demographic variables. Table 7(b) represents that the variables such as age ( χ 2 9.358)*, standard ( χ 2 26.24)* place of residence ( χ 2 11.45)* and hobbies ( χ 2 23.15)* have significant association between the electronic gadget use on “Television” at 0.05 level of significance this supports the research hypothesis. Other demographic variables have no association. Therefore the researcher accepted the research hypothesis and rejected the null hypothesis.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
