Abstract: The study is an attempt to know the comparisons between rural and urban families using field video recordings of infant-care giver interaction and analyzing the behaviours using Observer Behaviour Software (OBS). A sample number of 40 infants each in rural and urban areas was selected for the study. The results were analyzed by using OBS by calculating total time spent for positive and negative behaviours by caregivers and infants in play setting. The results of the play setting indicates that, caregivers vocalized, looked at the child, played along with the child and even involved in some care giving activities among the positive behaviours. Among the negative behaviours during play situation, looking at others, interacting with others, attending to work, and not responding to the child were more often observed.
