Temperament is an individual’s innate style of responding to the environment in both behavioural and emotional ways. Hisar district of Haryana state was selected for the present study. From Hisar district village Dobhi was selected purposively. 50 boys and 50 girls in the age group of 6 to 8 years were selected randomly from village Dobhi. Mothers of these children also participated in the study. Hence, the total sample for the study was 200 (50 boys and 50 girls and 100 mothers). There were two types of variables in the study i.e. independent and dependent variable. A dependent variable is a variable presumed to be affected by one or more independent variables. Motherchild Interaction was taken as dependent variable. Inventory was prepared and used.
