The behavior of parents is directed to the full development of children through non-violence, care, recognition, guidance, and the establishment of limits (Consejo de Europa, 2006). Positive Parenting is the task of upbringing a child by stimulating the emotional, intellectual, physical and social development from childhood to adulthood. This study aimed to explore the mothers' perception on positive parenting in an emergency situation like COVID-19. Data was collected through 4 in-depth interviews and 2 Focus Group Discussions. Most of the mothers could define the term positive parenting. In practicing positive parenting, the number reduced in COVID-19. In the findings it has found out that in a very few cases, COVID-19 has been a blessing that created scope for practicing positive parenting. In some cases, where there has been lack in practicing positive parenting, fathers accelerate this as they have been staying home in COVID-19 which used to be not like this before COVID-19.
