Abstract

The article discusses the basic theoretical and methodological approaches to the analysis of economic socialization of children in low-income families. The authors consider the socializing effect of family relations on the development of economic culture of children from the perspectives of cultural activity, structural-functional and subject-activity approaches and inter-subjective paradigm. For children, family relations are a sort of value matrix of attitudes to the economy, themselves and others as subjects of material and spiritual appropriation of economic benefits, that forms in their mind a generalized image of an economic human and forms the core of economic views and perceptions about family, themselves and others in relation to the attribution of economic benefits. The economic culture of the family influences children‘s choices of the strategies and techniques of economic benefits handling, which have been most frequently used by their parents. Psychologically the low-income family status is considered as the family‘s awareness of their financial insolvency. The low-income families‘ economic culture is characterized by their strong orientations to a good education, an interesting and prestigious job, good family relationships, professionalism and sense of duty along with poor orientations to a change in their social class, to power, popularity and status, achievement, personal success, opportunities for self-realization. Besides, the lowincome families have negative expectations, pessimism, low level of assertiveness, fear of the new, mistrust to others and to themselves, and the feeling of doom and fatalism. It is noted that the economic socialization of children in low-income families is fraught with dysfunctions and can lead to special effects which will be investigated in the follow-up search.
