The aim of the research is to check the relationship between child gender and life separate from parents in the emerging adult period on the perception of parenting warmth and control, and satisfaction with the quality of relationship with parents. We also wanted to examine the relationship between emotionality and control with satisfaction. The research was carried out using a paper-pencil method. We used the scale of perception of family relationships, and the question of satisfaction assessment with the relationship with parents. The obtained results indicate that students who do not live with their parents do not differ significantly from the assessment of parental control, warmth, nor on the assessment of satisfaction with parents' relationship from students living with their parents. However, there is an interaction between gender and the conditions of residence on the satisfaction assessment – girls when they leave home are more satisfied with the relationship, and boys are more dissatisfied with their relationship with parents. Perceived emotionality and control was effected only by the gender of the examinees. Satisfaction with the relationship correlates highly negative with parental control, and highly positive with parental emotionality, which is expected.
