The study was conducted in Hisar district of Haryana state. Two areas were selected purposively i.e., rural and urban. A total of 200 children in three age groups, namely 3, 4 and 5 years were selected for the study. Age, gender and area were taken as independent variable. Social skills and social skills were taken as dependent variable. Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scale of Social Maturity (Sparrow et al., 1935) was used to determine social skills among children. Result revealed that Mean scores on social skills of boys in rural areas were higher than girls in age groups 3-5 years. There was no significant difference (z = 0.17) in mean score on social skills of boys and girls in rural areas on the basis of overall mean.
