The psychological issues of adolescents are on the peak and are rising every day. Adolescent age marks the onset of various psychological changes and emotional changes. Studies reveal that 50% of mental and psychological issues begin at the age of 14. Parental care plays a crucial role in shaping the behavioral pattern of children, which is influenced by their psychological well-being. Thus this paper assesses the parental care and psychological well being of standard IX students with the aim of studying the relationship between them. A descriptive study was made with a sample of 200 students. Data was collected from students of IX Standard in the schools of Chennai using psychological well being tool and parental care tool. Results reveal that there is a negative correlation between parental care and psychological well being.
