After collecting information on personal background, disciplinary practices adopted while upbringing their young children by employed and unemployed mothers was analysed. The statistical methods employed for this research were z value and correlation tests. The research indicate the significant differences between employed and unemployed mothers children in term of getting facilities and recognition of self responsibilities. The employed mothers were having more expectations from children (87%), they were shouting at children for the misbehavior (87%) and for mistakes they were giving some punishments too. Comparatively unemployed mothers were trying to divert child’s mind in constructive activities, motivating them for their good behavior (97% each) trying to understand child’s mistake by listening to his explanation, giving rewards to children (95% each), setting role models to them (92%).The highly significant differences were found in employed and unemployed mothers’ experiences regarding support from the family members as husband and in laws with respect to support in managing home.
