The hypotheses that conservative religious parents differ from other parents if it comes to parenting and parenting support, was tested using data from 976 parents with children between 0 and 18 years old in the community Nunspeet, the Netherlands. The survey was about parenting, wishes and demands for parenting support. One-Way Anova’s, Independent- sample T tests and multiple regression analyses, indicated that conservative religious parents experience more stress than other parents. They are more worried about themes like obedience, aggressive behaviour and social contacts. They are also more worried about their children going to church and confirmation classes. The same percentage of conservative religious parents as others parents wishes advice or support in the future, but when it comes to parenting support, conservative religious parents significantly chose less available forms of advice and support then other parents. It seems to be that there are barriers that keep conservative religious parents away from parenting support. Further qualitative research would be effective to find out what those barriers are. Research for concrete wishes and demands from these parents if it comes to parenting support is necessary.
