Sampling method was stratified random sampling. 400 questionnaires were distributed among participants and the data was analyzed using descriptive statistical methods. RESULTS: Findings demonstrated that 116 cases (31 percents) scored 0-64 and 63 cases (17 percents) scored 65- 95 and 192 cases (52 percents) scored 97- 160. These scores were respectively considered positive, neutral and negative overall attitude toward parenting. CONCLUSIONS: Some parents considerably lack fundamental parenthood skills.
