Abstract:Parenting is an important phenomenon in human life. It is a dynamic, changeable phenomenon. It changes not only with the child's age and its lower parent's emotional dependence but also with the influence of key life events. By entering kindergarten, the social role of the child changes. This also transforms parenthood and parenting roles.
The paper presents the results of qualitatively oriented research, which clarifies the subjective changes of the parental role in the child's arrival in kindergarten. When a child enters a kindergarten, the parent undergoes many changes in their parenting role. The changes relate to shortening daily contact with the child, his all control over it and return to work. Among other things, the child is in a position to accept new authority in the form of a teacher. The interviews with the parents revealed their subjective feelings that occurred when the child entered the kindergarten. At the same time, they point to the transformation of the parental role during the long-term attendance of a child into a preschool. In the research, we focus primarily on the internal feelings of the parent and his personal perception of the parental role.
Keywords: parent, parenthood, parental role, change parental role, parent in Preschool.
