    In diploma thesis I define education, views on upbringing in the past and present and how education is defined by different educational styles. We defined various factors which play an important role in upbringing children: family, kindergarten, interpersonal relationships and interpersonal communication. In the empirical part I integrated all obtained theoretical knowledge with practical experience of four parents and two kindergarten teachers with whom I carried out interviews. In this diploma thesis I researched which forms and styles of upbringing these parents and kindergarten teachers use, have they got different views on upbringing and what causes these differences, where they acquire information about the upbringing of children, what are their needs for education, how they view upbringing in the present and in the past and what are the challenges they encounter in upbringing of children. Among the interviewees the prevalence is either an authoritative or a democratic parenting style. In raising a child they give an important role to setting limits and being consequent about them. The most successful approach is building on interpersonal relationships, both in the family and in kindergarten, while referring to the importance of communication during the process of upbringing. In parenting styles and views about raising a child mothers and fathers are unified in wanting the child to grow up into an independent and responsible person. I also wanted to know where the difficulties in raising a child lie. The parents are faced with feelings of guilt if they punish achild and one kindergarten teacher labelled the children as spoiled. The analysis of the interviews showed that the source of information on the upbringing of children for parents and kindergarten teachers mainly consists of their own feelings; this is especially true for the fathers. The mothers express the need for advice from others, mainly from their loved ones. One of the mothers also uses expert advice (communication workshops and expert articles). Kindergarten teachers rely in addition to their feelings and various scientific articles on the official document called "Curriculum for kindergartens" and advice from work colleagues with whom they cooperate in kindergartens. The need for additional education on upbringing is generally not reported amongst the interviewees. It turns out that the upbringing of children is a sensitive issue and therefore parents and teachers gave socially more acceptable answers on some questions about the upbringing of children.
