Abstract :

Present study was conducted to know the influence of family environment on social competence of an children is of great importance. Family environment affects the social competence during a more crucial period in life, i.e. adolescence. Adolescence is often considered as a period of “storm & stress”. Any negligence of the individual at this stage leads to serious problems in later life which is bad not only for the individual but also for all those who come in contact with him and for the society in which they live. Study was carried out on 100 children’s (50 boys and 50 girls)from Meerut city. The results show gender differences in perception of the family environment and social competence which proves that in Indian culture especially that of small cities .the parents still give differential treatment to their sons and daughters and the society has certain gender biases still prevailing. Key Words- family environment, social competence.
