Research is directed to comparative and age studying of forms of boundary mental disorders at children at various stages of mental development. Existence of fears that appear as result of development of the intellectual sphere and imagination are characteristics of each age. Under favorable circumstances of life of the child, such fears disappear: children "grow up" from them. However, when fears collect, they interfere with personal development of the child and create for him adaptation, neurotic and other problems, and in general, are a trouble sign.

Zakharov's technique "Children's fears" is conducted. Frequency, content and amount of fears are revealed. Increase in quantity and intensity of fears correlate with nevrotization level. Statistical these amounts of fears are given in different age groups. Kruskal Wallis's H-criterion and ?2-criterion of consent of Ch. Pearson were used when processing results.
