The study aimed to investigate perceived paternal acceptance and emotional intelligence in adolescents. The research hypothesis stated a predictive relationship between emotional intelligence and perceived father’s acceptance-rejection of adolescents. The sample of the study included 600 children (300 males and 300 females) enrolled in 6th to 10th grade, with age ranges between 13 to 17 years (mean=14 SD=1.150). Data was collected using the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire–Adolescent Short Form (TEIQue-ASF) Urdu version and Parental Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaire (PARQ) short form Urdu version. Information collected from the respondents was analyzed through descriptive statistics and linear regression. According to the findings of the study emotional intelligence was significantly predicted by perceived paternal acceptance-rejection in adolescents (R²= 0.045, F(1,599)=17.261, p<0.000). It can be concluded that perceived parental acceptance is a significant predictor of emotional intelligence in adolescents.
