The present study is done to find out the Parent Child Relationship in high school adolescent girls. The sample for the investigation consisted of 60 adolescent girls studying in 9th and 10th class. The sample was taken from Lai C.M. Public school of Jaipur city; Rajasthan (India).

The data collected for the present study were coded, and quantitative assessment was attempted. The results of the study revealed that, on parent child relationship dimensions fathers were more close to their children comparatively their mothers. The results indicates that mothers and fathers were almost equally protective, demanding and give equal symbolic rewards and object rewards towards their children. On the other hand mothers were more rejecting, neglecting, and indifferent, and give more of object punishment as compared to fathers. It was interesting to note that father had leading scores on the dimensions of love and care. It is evident that both father and mother played equally important role in the lives of their children.
