As coronavirus disease continues to spread across the world, it has been causing disruptions in the daily routines of everyone's life. This pandemic has made us live in a quarantine phase with our families and the uncertainty still persists. This has caused changes in family relations and empathy among them. In a family, people are related to each other and share an emotional bond which helps us to relate to human agony with care and understanding, acting in ways that bring comfort to those around us. The objective of the current study is to analyze and explain the effect of family relationships on empathy during the lockdown period due to COVID-19. For this study, an alternate hypothesis was used and it was hypothesized that there will be a significant relationship between family relationships and empathy. 181 adult participants who lived with their families during the lockdown period completed the Index of Family Relations (IFR) and the Toronto Empathy Questionnaire. The data of 181 participants were statistically analyzed by SPSS. If there is a positive significant relationship, between family relationships and empathy, it will elucidate the effect of engagement and communication on changing levels of sympathy and empathy for family members. However, if the result shows a negative relationship between family members and empathy, it will widen the area to explore other factors that affect the empathy of family members.
