The study compared working and non working mother's parenting style and their child's Temperament and its effect on Behavioural problems: among school going children. The sample was gathered from mothers (working & non-working) of 400-school going Children of both genders, between ages 12years to 15years. Parenting style questionnaire, The Early Adolescent Temperament Questionnaire were given to mothers to assess their parenting styles and child's temperament respectively. The Strength and difficulty questionnaire was given to the teachers to screen for behavioural problem among these children. Our research concluded that children's of working and non-working mothers have behavioural problems but the children of non working mothers have severe behavioural scores which were clinically significant than compared to children of working mothers. The research concluded that working status of mother do not have effect on children behavioural problems, rather other external and social factors like peer interaction, child caregiver attitude, neighbours interaction pattern and social relations and interactions have more influence on the child's behaviour, specially, when they are in their early adolescent age.
