The image of the family has changed dynamically in recent years. This concerns not only its structure, values, ways of communication and leisure time activities, but also problems experienced by modern families. The family is exposed to the influence of many disintegrating factors that threaten its proper functioning. Despite the fact that every family strives to maintain a relatively stable internal balance, there are still many situations that destructively affect the functions it performs. The processes accompanying the ongoing civilization and cultural changes and socio-economic transformation have significantly intensified various types of family dysfunctionality phenomena. Orphanhood and loneliness of a child is one of the most important problems concerning children and is directly related to the functioning of the family - topics concerning selected issues in this area constitute the content of the prepared study.
