Indicators of integral well-being of the child (moral and aesthetic education; intellectual mobility; emotional and volitional stability; physical and vital tone; orientation in the world of professions; participation in society and decision-making; comfort; social security; and safety of life) are revealed. The concept of "person's safety", "safety of life activities" are defined. Objective and subjective aspects of security are distinguished.
