Abstract: Personal and Social Development or as it was previously introduced, 'Life Skills' has been taught in our schools since 1991. After a decade it is possible to evaluate its relevance to the current educational environment. This dissertation attempts to analyze the parents' views about the subject. This analysis can have an impact on the formulation of the subject for the near future. This research does not focus on any specific topic in P.S.D. but it is an attempt to get a general view. This quantitative research was addressed to parents from all walks of life. Through a questionnaire, parents were asked both closed and open ended questions regarding the topic. In five questions they had to rank alternative options presented to them. Open ended questions were meant to solicit the respondents' views about a particular topic without any constraints. The findings were compared to the findings of other researches on this topic. The response shows that parents are overwhelmingly in favour of P.S.D. and welcome it as part of their children's education. By analyzing the response of the parents, educators can ensure that the subject is always relevant to the needs of parents and students alike. Parents see P.S.D. as a helpful tool in their parenting responsibilities.
