    In everyday life the subject of parenting and child upbringing is often discussed among people who find themselves in the role of parents, babysitters and grandparents striving for best results (Peček Čuk and Lesar, 2009). My thesis focuses on parenting styles of mothers and fathers in Slovenia and in Finland. In the first, theoretical part, I have explained the concepts of socialization and parenting. I have defined the meaning of the term family and different family types. I have also compared statistical data on family types in Slovenia and Finland and defined changes in families and in family roles. I have defined the term of parenting, which expands into the definition of different parenting styles: the authoritarian, authoritative and permissive parenting style. There is also a chapter representing different parenting styles. Firstly I have displayed the data which represent parenting styles according to the sex of the parent and secondly I have shown the data related to parenting different sexes of children. I have concluded this chapter with cultural differences between Slovenia and Finland which are best described with their own view on family policies. The empirical part of my thesis bases on the data from a survey which I performed on 190 students in their third and fourth year of high school. The data were collected in 2015 at Šolski center Celje, Gimnazija Lava in Slovenia and at the Apollon Yhteiskoulu in Helsinki, Finland. The analysis of the results has shown that the majority of mothers and fathers are using an authoritative parenting style and that their parenting styles do not differ much. The comparison between countries has shown that in both countries and with both parents the most represented parenting style is the authoritative parenting style. The data that deserve the most of our consideration show the differences in parenting styles among fathers. The data show that fathers in Slovenia are more likely to use neglectful, authoritarian and permissive parenting style as opposed to mothers in Slovenia or both parents in Finland. In the conclusion the data also show that no matter the sex of the child, the most represented parenting style is the authoritative parenting style.
