Slovenian society is developing with intensiveness, and the role of the child is constantly changing. These changes are the consequence of changing family roles, especially the so-called new fatherhood and the intensity of childhood, but paradoxically there are least changes in the role of motherhood, which is still defined as biologically determined. In post-modern Slovenian society changes in childhood include: parental decisions to have children later; postponed motherhood (which is more frequent than postponed fatherhood); parents choosing to have fewer children; the changed images of children: the decision to have children at all is no longer self-evident; the influence of consumption on childhood, the way of growing up and the quality of the child's life.
