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.
