Kenney’s parental attachment questionnaire, Miller and Brown’s self-regulation scale and Rathus scale of assertiveness. Pearson correlation was used to find the relationship among the parental attachment, self – regulation and the social skills. The results of correlation revealed that there exists no significant relationship among the parental attachment, self-regulation and social skills of the young adults.
