The results of the study of individual-psychological features in teenager boys aged 11–13 and 14–15 from two-parent (n = 60) and single-parent (n = 60) families are presented. The dynamics of personality traits development in teenage boys from single-parent families is analyzed. The obtained data prove that teenagers from single-parent families are different in personality traits, self-esteem and aggression levels from those living in two-parent families. It is noted that single-parent family provides contradictory conditions for personality development in teenage boys and thus makes social adaptation difficult.

Keywords: single-parent family, teenager, personality traits, intelligence; self-esteem, aggression, negativism
