In her paper the authoress analyses the view dominant both in the rulings of the Supreme Court and in the doctrine of civil law that the right to personal contacts with a child does not constitute a component of parental power. According to her, the thesis of complete independence of this right of parental power is not a clear issue. As a result of conducted analysis she assumes that parents' right to personal contacts with a child is strictly connected with parental power and its proper execution would be impossible without these contacts. Thus parents' obligation to maintain personal contacts with a child should be looked upon as one of normative components of parental power.
