Subject and Keywords:
From the point of view of studies in humanities and social science (pedagogy, history of education, sociology, ethnology) an important issue of discussion is the position and the role of a child in a workingclass family, the conditions of his socializing and the norms of education at the time of intensive social and economic changes. Financial situation, the structure of a family, emotional ties, cultural message of the environment influenced the methods and aims of bringing up children. The reconstruction of the phenomenon is possible due to the archive sources (for instance, the documents of social organizations which supported poor town families), newspapers, guide books, diaries, statistic data, acts of law (for instance, laws concerning children and young people), ethnologic materials, literature, photographs, and numerous methodological solutions used at that time.
