Current study was an attempt to see the relationship between perceived mother’s warmth (an important ingredient of maternal acceptance) and environmental mastery (an element of psychological wellbeing). It was hypothesized that perceived mother’s
acceptance would be positively correlated with environmental mastery. A sample of 200 students (100 male, 100 female), of ages 20 -25 years were randomly sampled from educational institutions of Karachi-Pakistan. The participants provided their consent and demographic information and filled following questionnaires; (1) Perceived Maternal Warmth Sub-scale of Adult PAQR/CONTROL: Mother (Short form) (Rohner, 2004), (2) Environmental Mastery sub scale of Psychological Wellbeing Scales (Ryff, 1995). Statistical analysis revealed that perceived mother’s warmth is positively correlated with environmental mastery. Avenues for future researches are also suggested.
