Тhe aim of the article is to study the value sphere of girls with different attitudes to the parental position of the mother. The procedure and methods of research. The empirical research was performed with the use of the following methods: “Incomplete statements” and “Ranking of values.” The study involved 207 girls aged 17 to 23 years. Different types of attitudes toward future motherhood are revealed: priority of the mother’s position, positive attitude towards motherhood and delayed parenthood, motherhood as a duty, ambivalent attitude and rejection of motherhood. The relationship of attitudes towards future motherhood with the priorities of the value sphere has been proved. High significance of the values “family”, “interesting work”, and “love” was revealed for the group with a positive attitude towards motherhood. In case of ambivalent attitude the significance of the value “material well-being” increases, and in case of the rejecting attitude the value of “self-development and cognition” grows. The theoretical significance is in studying the role of values as regulators of the personality. The practical importance is determined by the tasks of forming young women’s positive attitude to the motherhood. The article is addressed to psychologists working in the field of family psychology.
