Abstract:

The study entitled “Child Care Practices Adopted by the Urban and Rural Families and Health problems encountered by the young children” was carried out in randomly selected five colonies of Parbhani town and five villages from five talukas of Parbhani district. The purposive random sampling method was used and 150 families (75 urban and 75 rural) having children in the age range of 2-6 yrs were studied to know their child care practices and health problems encountered by the young children. The data pertaining to the study were collected by personally interviewing the urban and rural families. The Z test and correlation test were used for statistical analysis. The study results revealed that the majority of the mothers were involved in personal grooming of children irrespective of urban or rural area. From both the groups, almost all the mothers were involved in children’s menu planning, giving training to children about following hygiene practices whereas 49-52 percent fathers were involved in health care of children. Further, it was found that the age of the parents, their SES and education were significantly correlated with their involvement in child care practices.
