The relevance of the research is due to the process of formation of familistic competence being understudied while the latter is one of the most important needs of the young age. In particular, the paper deals with describing the content and structure of the attitude toward parents and family values that the young people with sensory impairments have. The leading methods of studying this problem are Ch. Osgood’s universal three-factor semantic differential and the questionnaire of parental upbringing style by E.G. Eidemiller and V.V. Yustitskis. These have allowed determining that the young people having various sensory impairments accept themselves and family values, they are satisfied with their families and they consider it to be their support. In the paper, authors speak about some discrepancy detected between the upbringing styles demonstrated by parents and the attitude toward upbringing and they also show that the sensory impairment type makes a certain contribution to adjusting the system of attitudes in the young people living in the parental family. So, the young people having hearing disorder treat the parental upbringing styles as ones that curtail their freedom and independence, while those with visual impairments perceive the styles as limiting their daily duties and as adhering to the generally accepted behavior rules strictly. In the structure of their attitudes, a positive acceptance of oneself and one’s family is not associated with a negative attitude toward their defects. The materials of the paper may be of use in the practice of psychological counseling on the problems of child-and-parent relationships and in preventing the destructive trends in building of their own families by the young people with sensory impairments.
