The sample consists of 220 students of IXth, Xth, XIth and XIIth class selected from the coeducational english medium schools of Kanpur district. Out of which 110 were boys and 110 were girls. The sample was collected by using multistage random sampling technique. Self designed socio-demographic questionnaire was used to study the socio-demographic characteristics of respondents. Emotional maturity of the respondents was assessed by emotinal Maturity scale developed by Singh and Bhargava. The most critical time in life is during emotional maturity in adolescent years. We learn to love, hate, fear and feel anger. It is very important that adults influence a child's thinking and actions in a positive manner. Many life decisions happen during the short span of adolescent emotional maturity Positive emotions include enthusiasm, joy and love. Emotionally mature adult grows from a childhood where one successfully struggles with failure, disappointment, and a high I.Q. (intelligence, quotient) does not necessarily lead one to develop emotion all maturity; may who are born with few advantages can develop into mature well adjusted adults. Adolescence can be a time of high risk, where new found freedoms can result in decisions that drastically open up or close off life opportunities. So family, peer group, school and society plays an important role in the emotional stability of adolescent and this comes by the emotional maturity of adolescent girls and boys.
