Abstract. Family education is a separate direction in modern pedagogy in general and social and educational activities in particular. The modern legislative framework of the Russian Federation guarantees the child the right to live and be brought up in a family. The solution to this problem is to transfer the child to a substitute family for upbringing, where he will be able to learn cultural values, family traditions, and receive full development. The replacement family is considered as “a special type of family system, the result of the unification of the basic family and the adopted child into a new systemic whole with its own laws of formation and development.” Scientific interest in the study of the historical development of pedagogical thought about the so-called substitute family education is due to the relevance of the idea of a holistic educational process aimed at the comprehensive and harmonious development of the personality of a child left without parental care. Family education is a separate direction in social and educational activities. Substitute family education is the basis of family pedagogy and a form of providing social assistance to orphans and children left without parental care. The study of the problems of family education is aimed at finding the most effective mechanisms for the socialization of minors who are deprived of parental care. A special role is played by the historiographical approach aimed at studying a wide array of primary sources of the leading thinkers of the past, where theories, concepts, ideas of family education are studied both in blood families and in substitute ones. The article presents approaches to studying the history of family education, taking into account the periodization of pedagogical thought in Russia. The main approaches to the analysis of family values and principles, rules of family education are also considered.

Keywords: family education, substitute family education, history of pedagogy, historiographical approach, educational process, socio-educational activity, social education, social pedagogy.
