The contemporary family is characterized by changes in all its aspects. However, transferring of values still remains its important role. Conducted research and its results allow to enumerate significant values for youngsters and see family environment as a vital means of conveying values, in which parents take a leading position in the process of transferring. Theoretical assumptions of these examinations are based on the concept of upbringing created by Katarzyna Olbrycht. The empirical data which is fundamental for the dissertation has been collected through a diagnostic survey and a special questionnaire. The research reveals that the examined group values very high such notions as family and health as opposite to material goods and pleasure.
