Features of the Image of the Father in Tuvan Teenagers from Single-Parent Families in the Republic of Tyva


Introduction. Family relations are currently undergoing transformation. Often the man is not the head of the family. In the Republic of Tuva, the image of the father as the head of the family who financially supports the family has changed significantly. The purpose of the article is to identify the differences in the image of the father in complete and incomplete families of different types in the Republic of Tyva. Materials and Methods. The results of an empirical study of the features of the reflection of the father’s image in the minds of adolescents from single-parent families in the Tyva Republic are presented. It was attended by 166 people between the ages of 13 and 14, of which 62 are boys. The study of the father’s image was carried out using the SOCH(I) method of V. L. Sitnikov. In this methodology, the rank structure of different images of the father of boys and girls from different types of families is distinguished on the basis of a quantitative comparison of the use of characteristics of different modalities. Results. There are two factors in the formation of the image of a father among adolescents: the traditional image of a father, the way he should be, is mainly traced among adolescents from single-parent families; and the modern father, who shares the headship of the family with the mother of the child, an egalitarian family. The peculiarities of the father’s image in adolescent boys and girls, characteristic of complete orphaned and divorced families, were revealed in significant differences. Discussion and Conclusion. The analysis of the father’s image in adolescents was carried out taking into account gender. In Tuvan adolescents, two types of father images prevail, depending on the type of family. For adolescents from orphaned and divorced families, a stereotypical image of a father is characteristic, formed on the basis of traditional ideas, of Tuvan culture. The image of the father of adolescents from complete families, as a rule, is distinguished by individuality, since it reflects not a collective image generalized by culture, but specific ideas about a real person.

Keywords: father image, adolescence, boys, girls, divorced families, orphaned families, complete families, social perception.
