The present study attempts to explore Emotional Competence of the respondents in relation to parental involvement among adolescents. The data were collected on 150 adolescents (75 boys and 75 girls) equally divided into three groups on the basis of high average and low parental involvement. Chopra and Sahoo's (2007) Parental involvement scale and Bharadwaj's (2007) scale of Emotional Competence were used to measure parental involvement and emotional competence of the respondents. The results have revealed that (1) boys and girls differed significantly on all the dimensions of emotional competence except one dimensions i.e. enhancement of positive emotions and (2) boys who perceived low parental involvement were found to be more above to function with emotions.
