The data obtained from the sample was statistically analysis by using Frequency, Percentage, Mean, SD, Correlation and ‘t’-test. The obtained result showed that both of the boys (M-75) and girls (M-73.05) parents have moderate family pathology and mothers’ placed their children at moderate level (M-104.22) in PBCL but the fathers’ placed them at mild level (M-77.12) in PBCL. The analysis reveals that there is a significant difference between father of boys and girls (p<0.05, 3.92/(p>0.05, 2.53) as well as mother of boys and girls (p<0.05,12.38/(p>0.05, 20.2) in respective of FPS and PBCL.  Finally the study reveals that there is a slightly significant relationship with family pathology (with father and children-0.06 and with mother and children-0.09) on the behavioural and emotional problems of children.
