AbstractIn the article the authors research the specificity of the relationship between coping strategies, personal characteristics, content, and particularities of display of fears by 9-10 year old children. Theoretical analysis of scientific literature, document analysis, observation, polls, psycho-diagnostic method, expert evaluation method, content-analysis of children's ideas about fears and coping-strategies, method of group comparison, and other research methods were used for the purpose. The authors conclude that characteristic features of child's interpersonal relationships can form his/her adaptive or disadaptive coping-strategies that are shown in a form of fears. Fears become a disadaptive coping strategy if the child's interaction with his/her significant close people contributes to arising secondary emotional problems, which reflect the child's dissatisfaction with the current system of interpersonal relations
