Vernik I.S. CHARACTERISTIC OF SOCIAL SITUATION OF CHILDREN DEVELOPMENT IN THE ENVIRONMENT OF UNCERTAINTYThe value of personal success while reducing the importance of public welfare, a pragmatic outlook on life, the “phenomenon of mistrust” in the information received, and a decline in the authority of elders are characteristic of today’s rising generation. There is a contradiction between the need to ensure the successful socialization of children in modern society and the declining importance of traditional institutions: family, school, peer group in this process. The mass media are considered as one of the leading institutions of socialization of the younger generation. They are defined as a means of creating an educational and developmental environment that modernizes the norms of raising children and adolescents. In the course of theoretical research, I found that today cultural expectations, social prescriptions and restrictions, as well as requirements for the activities and behavior of a child are not fully defined. There is a variability and pluralism of public images that guide the direction of the process of raising modern children. The process of early introduction of children to the “adult” culture, widely demonstrated by the media, is alarming. Two contradictory phenomena are spreading: “social orphanhood” of children and “total control” over them by their parents, which indicates a crisis in parent-child relations. In my opinion, the modern school needs to take into account the desire of children and adolescents for indirect communication and socialization. They should be prepared for the constantly changing living conditions, alternative life and professional paths. It is necessary to teach them to navigate in a wide range of behavior patterns, including in the virtual space.Key words: social situation of development, Information Society, child’s and teenager’s guidance and education, family guidance, difficulties of child development.
