The present study was carried out in Hisar district of Haryana state. An inventory was prepared to assess the overall behavioural adjustment of children based on their overt classroom behaviour. Interpersonal Problem Solving by Shure and Spivack (l974a) were used to measured children's interpersonal cognitive problem-solving skills for avoiding the anger of their mothers. Clearly shows that impatience (r = -0.33***), emotionality, (r = -0.32***), and aggression(r = -0.41***), were marginally to moderately negatively correlated with proportions of "non-forceful" strategies. Table further shows that impatience (r = 0.30***), and aggression (r = 0.52***) were marginally to strongly positively correlated with proportions of "forceful" strategies. Further results show that strategies in Mother Problem tasks, "Apology-truth" alternatives were marginally negatively correlated with (r = -0.35***) aggression. "Blame other, hide, and hide object” strategies were marginally to moderately positively correlated with impatience (r = 0.29***), emotionality (r = 0.35***) and aggression (r = 0.50***), components of behaviour.
