Individual psychological or behavioral risk factors that may make offending more likely include impulsiveness or the inability to delay gratification, aggression, empathy and restlessness that denotes the temperamental characteristics of an individual. Therefore present study provides a quantitative correlation between temperament and moral values among children of joint and nuclear families. In joint families truthfulness, honesty and resistance to cheating were significantly positively correlated with all the dimensions of temperament but negatively correlated with the dimension of energy. In nuclear families truthfulness and resistance to stealing was positively and significantly correlated with total temperament. Overall results indicate significant positive correlation between temperament and moral values in joint and nuclear families
