The present investigation was conducted with a view to assess parenting stress and parent-child-relationship of single and double career mothers in a nuclear family with a single female child. It is evident from the present study that there was a statistically highly significant difference between Parenting Stress in single and double career mothers. From the results of correlation, it was found that only the ‘symbolic reward’ subscale in case of only homemaker correlated negatively Parenting Stress. Thus, it could be concluded that, in spite of higher level of parenting stress experienced by double career mothers than the homemaker only mothers, there was no difference in the ultimate quality of Parent-Child-Relationship. This had been so perhaps because basic love was not lesser in double career mother than the single career counterparts, and the children could feel it no doubt.
