In
the Carribean, cases of indiscipline in high schools seem to be escalating.
Heinzl (2009), states that administrators, policy makers, teachers, parent, and
public at large have been looking for solutions for indiscipline in schools. In
West Africa, Kwajo (2011) indicates that students from Shama senior  high school were caught watching phonographic
materials in their phones in March 2011.Locally, indiscipline is rampant in
Kenyan High schools. The worst case of indiscipline in Kenya was the killing of
students at Kyanguli  High school in
Machakos county on March 25th 2001, where 67 students perished after
their dormitory was burnt(GoK,2001). The recent ugly case of indiscipline
happened on August 2015 in Stephjoy secondary school where 2 students perished
after their dormitory was set on fire by their peers.(Standard digital news,
August 3rd 2015).

Drug
and substance abuse coupled with immorality has also been witnessed recently
amongst our high school students. For instance, a Nairobi bound Mini bus was
arrested in Kirinyaga with students various schools towards the end of        Term 2 2015. The students were drunk and
also rolls of Bhangi were also found. Also, 550 students were arrested in a
discotheque in Eldoret where they had a sex and drug party whereby the youngest
was 12 years old. (Daily Nation,5th October 2015) .The most recent
indiscipline case was whereby on Mashujaa day 20th October 2015,
about 250 minors were arrested in a discotheque in town, with the youngest
being 9 years old. Due this state of affairs, many researchers have tried to
investigate the root cause of indiscipline among high school students. Various
researchers have attempted to find out the factors responsible for indiscipline
in high schools. However, very few researches have been done to find out
whether parent attributes could be responsible for indiscipline in high
schools. In addition, no research has been done in the researcher’s research
site that is Westlands Sub-county in Nairobi County. This research intends to
focus on parent-adolescent relationship, parents’ socioeconomic status and
disciplining practices used to correct adolescents behavior and eventually find
out whether they could be related to indiscipline in high schools.
