Parenthood from the perspective of parents of a child mentally fit and a child mentally handicapped
It has been assumed in the article that parenthood is one of the basic fields of activity of adults which makes it possible to fulfil essential needs and constitutes an important element of their sense of identity. On the basis of the conducted research it was attempted to make a psychological analysis of motherhood and fatherhood from the perspective of adult people playing parent roles to fully fit children and those with limited mental abilities. The attitude towards parenthood is primal in relation to parental attitude understood as a relation to a particular child and its behaviour. The reported results, proving dominance of positive attitude towards motherhood and fatherhood, show that the child and its intellectual condition affect the perception of parenthood which in the case of care of a handicapped child is exposed to a series of specific difficult situations.
