Based on the study of understanding parenting practices, father’s role and childrearing concepts we are considering manifestation of authoritarian syndrome in parenting culture of mothers. The results of the study showed that mothers opting for obedience can be characterized as authoritarian, and mothers focused on inquisitiveness are acting as regulators. Mothers that value sociability are acting as protective authoritarians. We are offering ways of correcting authoritarian attitudes of parents.
