The relevance of research of the conditions and factors of the development of the attitude to the mother's parental position in the period of adulthood is due to the growth of negative tendencies: the prevalence of deviant parenting, a decrease in the birth rate, and decrease in the prestige of motherhood. The results of an empirical study of the types of attitudes to motherhood among young woman at the stage of adulthood as well, as the role of acceptance / rejection by their own mothers in childhood and adolescence are presented. The study involved 230 respondents aged 17 to 23 years. The projective technique "Uncompleted sentences" and R. Roner's questionnaire were used. The results obtained allowed us to distinguish five types of attitude to the motherhood: 1) priority and acceptance of the maternal role; 2) a positive attitude towards motherhood and delayed parenthood; 3) motherhood as a duty; 4) ambivalent attitude to motherhood and delayed parenthood; 5) rejection of motherhood and maternal role. A comparative analysis of the nature of the relationship with the mother in the context of the acceptance / rejection model (R. Roner) revealed statistically significant differences in all indicators of child-parent relations (acceptance, hostility, indifference, hidden rejection, total rejection), which confirmed the hypothesis of the relationship between the attitude toward motherhood and the parental position of young women and their experience of acceptance / rejection by own mother in childhood and adolescence. Mother’s acceptance creates an emotionally positive attitude to motherhood and a readiness for real family planning, while rejection is a high risk factor of negative attitude to the maternal role until the subsequent open total rejection contributes to the priority of choosing a professional career as opposed to motherhood.

Keywords: motherhood, parental position, acceptance, rejection, type of attitude to motherhood, period of adulthood
