Abstract
The article examines the cross-cultural characteristics of the practices of upbringing and child-parent relations within the concept of "cultural niche" of child development (Super and Harkness) and the differentiation of two types of cultures - individualistic and collectivistic (Triandis, Hofstede), differing in values, goals and methods of education. The relativity of their opposition is shown in relation to the problem of child-parent relations and the upbringing of the child. Universal characteristics of child-parent relations (acceptance/rejection) are singled out. The role of the personal characteristics of the parent and the character of the social environment as a determinant, mediating the practices of upbringing and socialization are discussed.

Keywords: culture, cross-cultural differences, parenthood, child-parent relations, socialization, style of upbringing, collectivistic and individualistic culture.

Column: Developmental psychology
