Abstract: Adolescence is often described as a phase of life that begins in biology and ends in society. The word adolescence is derived from a Latin verb adolescere which means to grow into maturity. It also means to emerge . Adolescence is a formative and the most fascinating period of human life that marks the transition from childhood to adulthood and during this period, new adjustments in life situations will have to be made. Stanley Hall (1904) had characterized adolescence as a period of storm and stress . Adolescence is also described as a period of sexual development (Barber, 2004). The first objective of the study was to develop an instrument to assess the knowledge, attitude and practice of rural adolescent girls about selected aspects of family life. The instrument was developed by the investigator from the literature review as well as by conducting six focus group interviews in one of the CONCH program villages. Three hypotheses were formed on the basis of the objectives and were tested. The findings are as follows: H1 - There was a significant increase in the level of knowledge, attitude and practice about family life in the adolescent girls who participated in the AFLE program as compared to the girls who did not participate in the program. H2 -There was a significant relationship between knowledge, attitude and practice of adolescent girls about family life H3 - There was a significant association between attitude and practice of adolescent girls and selected socio-demographic and personal characteristics of adolescent girls and the selected socio-demographic characteristics of their parents. newline
