ABSTRACT
Article is devoted to a problem of formation of independence to the teens which are in a situation of family trouble. The purpose of research − to identify characteristics of independence of teenagers from dysfunctional families in comparison with adolescents from healthy families.
Methods are used in research: the theoretical analysis of a problem of development of the identity of the child in dysfunctional family, poll, testing, conversation, the φ*-test.
In this paper analyzed the importance of family in the formation of autonomy during adolescence to solve further tasks of life. In healthy family often ignored development of independence.
In research considered the development of independence in adolescents from criminal and alcoholic families.
The theoretical analysis of conditions of development of children in such families showed that their asocial atmosphere deforms the identity of the child. Teens from dysfunctional families do not have the examples social approved behavior and, consequently, − external regulators of their actions. At the same time they are often have to take responsibility and solve their problems instead of parents.
Comparative analysis of the level of independence of teenagers from dysfunctional families showed high level of it in comparison with their peers from healthy families. But the analysis of ability to self-control revealed domination of medium and low levels in disadvantaged adolescents and middle and high - the successful peers.
The results showed that the inability to regulate behavior with social norms teenagers from dysfunctional families is the reason that their independence leads to asocial behavior, social disadaptation.
These results allow to identify not only the external reasons (family trouble) asocial behavior in adolescents, but also internal reasons (difficulty of self-regulation). This will provide a correctional work with them.
