Emotional maturity is tendency to understand and cope with emotions. The level of emotional maturity determines our ability to manage with complex situations. Emotional swings are frequently noticed at adolescent’s stage.

Healthy changes could only be achieved if parents choose a right parenting style to rear their young ones.  A mental construct signifying standard approaches that parents opt while rearing a child is called parenting style.
