Abstract: The greatest natural resource that any country can rely on to attain the pinnacle of prosperity is adolescents. Adolescents reared in intact home environments are more emotionally competent than those who are raised outside of intact families. The home is the place where a person experiences complete physical, mental, emotional, and cultural growth. Additionally, young adolescents who regularly receive emotional coaching from their parents have better bodily health and achieve academically higher standards than young adolescents whose families do not provide this support. The present study aims to analyse the relationship between the home environment and the emotional competence of children. The study included 120 participants (N= 120) of the age range, 14-16 years, from which sixty were males (N= 60) and sixty females (N= 60). The results indicate that reward and permissiveness dimensions of home environment predict emotional competence of the child. 33.6% variance in emotional competence was explained by reward and permissiveness as indicated by adjusted R square. Further reward, participation in home affairs, and control predicts empathy. 34.4% variance in empathy was explained by reward, participation in home affairs and control as indicated by adjusted R square. The present study is a humble effort to analyse the relationship between the above-mentioned variables with the help of correlation and regression.
