Especially, the adolescents who are observed to be highly emotional in their dealings need to be studied. In view of this, an attempt is made in present study to find out the impact of emotional maturity of adolescents on their stress and self confidence. Sample of the study consists of 225 boys and 225 girls studying in XI and XII class at Indore city M.P. State, India. The scales such as emotional maturity (Singh&Bhargav, 1994) and Students' Stress Scale (Deo, 1997) were administered on the selected sample.
