Background. The study of specific socio-cultural characteristics of modern education involves a synthesis of socio-pedagogical and sociological knowledge of the problems of education, on the one hand, and social and philosophical understanding of the theory of education – on the other. In accordance with this the aim of our study was to assess the intra-family practices through which children are provided with social protection in situations of social deprivation, or when there is a risk of deprivation.
Materials and methods. According to our concept it is the family that is the social agent which transforms the content of the welfare policy into its own intrafamily practices of social adaptation, social protection and social development of children. As the hypothesis of our research, we put forward the proposition that the intra-family social protection practices adopted in Russia include some that are traumatic for children. The research is based on three blocks of data, the authors used such sociological methods as a focus group and individual interviews, observation, analysis of documents.
Results. The authors presented a classification of manifestations of family problems with a description of the model of intra-family practices of social protection and assessing their effectiveness and traumatic potential.
Conclusions. Families can do a great deal to raise the level of child social protection, to ensure that children receive social and pedagogical correction, and to overcome various negative tendencies in childhood development. But if intra-family practices of child social protection are of traumatic nature, or if they even have this potential, they become factors of child social deprivation, and must be taken into account by counsellors in the course of interactions with the children concerned.
