The aim of this study was to investigate the differences between fathers and mothers in their views on self and spouse in support given to develop entrepreneurial characteristics in teenage children. The study was conducted among 40 fathers and 77 mothers with children in the age of junior and senior high school. Results showed that there was a significant difference between views on self and spouse among mothers, t(76) = 4.08, p < 0.001. Mothers believed that they gave higher support than their spouse in developing entrepreneurial characteristics in their children. In the group of fathers, there was no significant difference between views on self and spouse, t(39) = 0.48, p > 0.05. These findings suggest that mothers and fathers have different views on self and spouse. Mothers tend to view themselves as more supportive than their spouse. On the other hand, fathers do not see themselves as more supportive or less supportive than their spouse.
