Annotation In the scientific literature, the study of the typology of journal periodicals is a significant and debatable problem. With the increasing number of periodicals and the continued segmentation of the print media audience, there are some new magazines that cannot always be successfully introduced into existing typologies. Publications of a pro-family theme have become an integral part of the modern media system; they have not only recognizable typological characteristics but also require further classification. An important segment of the media market, in our opinion, is newspapers and magazines for foster parents, which must be positioned as separate specialized publications. The authors of the article suggest considering magazines for foster parents within three typological groups: children’s bases, magazines for potential foster parents and magazines for families in which foster children are brought up. Separately, we can designate magazines that are published for specialists of guardianship and custody bodies and organizations that professionally deal with the family placement of orphans and children left without parental care. The indicated typological groups are a generalization of the results of the content analysis of the publications of magazines for foster parents. They recorded similarities and differences in the content of publications of various types, which were identified by induction, systematization and interpretation of the data of the study. The article focuses on the fact that the modern family needs information support, along with legal, socio-economic support from the state and society. The presence in the modern media space of socially oriented publications, which include magazines for foster parents, contributes to a positive change in the vector of disseminated media of family information.
Key words magazines for foster parents, family as a social institution, family structure of orphans, children without parental care, typology of the press
