Annotation: The cultural and ideological shift of the parenting paradigm towards the child-centred approach in upbringing leads to the need to study the phenomenology of intensive parenting (motherhood) in Russian psychology. For the first time, the article has presented the quantitative results of the intensity of the attitudes of intensive parenting in Russian women (as part of the pilot version of the Intensive Parenting Attitudes Questionnaire (IPAQ) methodology testing) (Liss M., Schiffrin H.H., Mackintosh V.H., Miles-McLean H., Erchull M.J., 2013) The study involved 138 women aged 23 to 56 years (M = 38.43) with number of children 1 to 5 (M = 1.93). It was found that the central element in the model of intensive parenting Russian women advocate child-centredness. Differences in the fullness of intense parental attitudes, depending on the age of the mother, are described. The severity of the attitudes to intensive motherhood is rather weakly interconnected with the peculiarities of the life context, and the socio-demographic characteristics of women. The findings can be used to address parental stress, burnout and general life dissatisfaction with individual clients and families.
Keywords: intensive parenting, intensive motherhood, professionalisation of parenting, severity of attitudes towards intensive parenting.
