The study is aimed to identify urgent problems in the field of communication between young men and women and other significant participants in unregulated interaction. Using standardised test methods, questionnaires were adapted for this study and were collected the primary material that reflects the essential characteristics of unregulated communication between high school students in Russia. The sample of the study was 378 people. The main results were the data indicating a serious gap between high school students’ need to communicate and the actual satisfaction of this need in the interaction with other significant participants. The main meaning of young people’s need for trustful reference unregulated communication is not so much the communicative component as the emotional–affective content, which consists of acceptance, support, emotional exchange and understanding on the part of other people. Currently, there is a gap between the need for unregulated confidential communication of young men and women with significant adults and the real system of such communication. The results were put into the development of recommendations that allow psychologists to build an optimal interaction with family systems and the pedagogical community to optimise communication between high school students. As a prospect for further research, the tasks of developing parent–child relationships are identified.
