Abstract

The authors discussed in the article the issue of the relationship identification between selected aspects of the family environment and chosen free time activities of children. Quantitative research using the questionnaire of authors was attended by 618 respondents - parents of children attending elementary schools in the town of Ruzomberok. The most important findings from the research include the discovery that the material environment of the family - mainly the monthly household income correlates with the free time activities of the children – while positive correlation was demonstrated during active spending of leisure time, negative correlation (but not at a significant level) was shown in passive spending of free time.
