In this study, effects of socio-economic status on parents’ attitudes for children's rights were investigated. Socio-economic status of the family in this study was limited with gender, age, education level of parents, family income and the place where born and raised of parents. The study was organized in accordance with the relational screening model. 642 mothers and 642 fathers, totaly 1284 parents took place in the research sample. "Family Information Questionnaire" and "Parental Attitude Scale for Children's Rights" were used as the data collection equipments in this study. Parents' attitudes for children's rights were defined in two dimensions in scale which were "Nurturance” and “Self-Determination”. According to the research findings, it was seen that mothers had attitudes in favor of "Nurturance” while fathers had attitudes in favor of “Self-Determination”. On the other hand, it was determined that both mothers and fathers with a high education level and family income status had attitudes in favor of "Nurturance”. Mothers and fathers born and raised in the town, county and city center, had attitudes in favor of "Nurturance” while parents born and raised in the village, had attitudes in favor of “Self-Determination”. Although maternal age was not effective on attitudes for “Self-Determination”, with increasing of mothers’ age significant difference was determined for "Nurturance”. Fathers aged 31 to 50 had attitudes in favor of "Nurturance”, while fathers under the age of 30 and over the age of 50 had attitudes in favor of “Self-Determination”.
