Abstract

This study aims to examine the relationship between the middle and high school students’ perceptions of social support they receive from their parents and peers during the physical activities and their happiness. Middle and high school students voluntarily participated in this research.  460 forms were obtained from the participants and accepted as data. The obtained data from middle and high school students were grouped, and the differences and relationships were analyzed. In the study, it was determined that the social support levels of middle school students for physical activities from their peers and parents were higher than that of high school students.  Moreover, it was concluded that as the level of received social support by students from their peers and parents for physical activities increased, their happiness levels also increased.

Keywords: Physical Activity, Social Support, Happiness, Peer, Parents
