Academic anxiety is a type of state anxiety. The desire for excellence in academics has become a key factor for children’s personal growth. Anxiety can occur with high educational expectations without understanding of personal quality of children and pressure for academic achievement according to desire of parent, teacher rather than children’s self-desire, personal quality or ability to achieve. Among the several factors that affect academic achievement, parenting style is one of the most important. Parent-child relation can be trigger of academic anxiety. The rationale behind the present study is to assess the relationship between parent-child relation and academic anxiety among the children. For the purpose of study 200 samples were randomly selected. Academic anxiety scale by A. K. Singh & A. Sen Gupta and Parent-Child Relation scale by Govind Tiwari were used. Findings of the Pearson Product moment Coefficient of correlation (r-test) revealed that parent-child relation and academic anxiety are correlated significantly. Parents should desist from setting a grade target too high for their wards to meet. It has been well known that children are important assets to any country. Healthy parent-child relation is an important factor for overall healthy growth and development of the children.
