The system of relationships to parents in children suffering from gastroenterological and rheumatoid diseases

Ushakova Vladislava Romanovna, Crimean Engineering and Pedagogical University named after Fevzi Yakubov

The article examines the system of relations to parents (to father and mother) in children suffering from gastroenterological and rheumatoid diseases. The study of domestic authors on this issue is carried out in the framework of identifying the child’s attitude to the disease and the influence of parental attitude on the occurrence and course of the disease. Through the prism of the child’s attitude to parents, his perception of the family system of relations, the specificity of interaction in the triad “mother–child–father” is determined. The study involved 350 children aged 10–12 years, including 180 schoolchildren with gastroenterological diseases and 170 children with rheumatoid diseases. Research methods are conversation and questioning. Parents of children with gastroenterological diseases often conflict and transfer the conflict to the plane of relations with the child, involving him in a scandal. Mothers of children with rheumatoid diseases protect them from a strict father through tears and tantrums, which makes the child feel sorry for the mother and a great dislike for the father. Lack of attention and care, mainly of mothers, children with gastroenterological and rheumatoid diseases compensate through their illness.
