The aim of study was to investigate the relationship between assertiveness and parenting stress in women living in joint and nuclear families. It was hypothesized that there would be a negative relationship between assertiveness and parenting stress in both groups of women. The sample composed of 135 women living in joint and nuclear families. Assessment measures included Self Assertiveness Scale (Zahid, 2002), Parenting Stress scale (Berry and Jones, 1995) and demographic questionnaires. Results showed that there was significant negative correlation between assertiveness and parenting stress among women living in joint and nuclear families. Results also revealed that education and assertiveness were negatively correlated in women of joint families but not in nuclear families.
