The modernization of Russian society at the turn of the XX-XX1 centuries gave rise to a complex set of social problems, the most painful among which were the problems of social insecurity and mass child neglect. It is obvious that the mass child neglect is not only evidence of the humanitarian catastrophe of the collapsing social systems, but also the inevitable "child disease" of any nascent disaster. From this point of view, the study of the experience in solving social problems is not only natural, but also relevant. An important aspect of the adaptation of orphans in society-the level of its preparation for independent life, namely household and social adaptation. For Russian children coming out of boarding schools and orphanages, this is almost the most important problem of life. State guardianship relieves pupils of their institutions from any habit of self-sufficiency, positioning themselves in society, communication with new people. The given study is going to explore the barriers that the orphaned children have to overcome in order to successfully socialize and avoid vulnerability in the capital of the Republic of Northern Ossetia (Alania), Vladikavkaz. The investigation and understanding of this problem is urgent in order to be able to give recommendations on the improvement of ongoing practice.
