This study comprehensibly deals with theoretical and empirical aspects within the two domains. The adequate development of child’s personality is among the hot issues of the world. Nowadays, the religious and social sciences greatly focused on the study of different developmental aspects of children in order to develop their personalities and make them good citizen for future. This paper explicitly presents the comparative and analytical view of literature on the nature and objectives of the development of child’s personality in order to integrate both schools of thought. The findings of this theoretical study, therefore, will be helpful to promote a better understanding of the issue for the production of righteous and virtuous offspring.
