Media educationin the family
Cigánková, Klára ; Wolák, Radim (advisor) ; Šťastná, Lucie (referee)
The master thesis "Media education in the family" discusses media education strategies of parents, or, in other words, parental mediation. This discussion is important because the family, in addition to the school system, is largely responsible for influencing the media literacy of children. The theoretical section of this thesis sums up how this topic was processed in foreign and Czech studies, and describes the main characteristics of parental mediation. Media education strategies of parents are also assessed in connection with the socialization of the child, and with the education and communication styles in family. Frequently, studies describe three types of parental mediation, which are: active mediation, restrictive mediation and social co-viewing. Although these types of mediation were defined mostly in connection with the viewing of television programs, it is possible to transfer these types, with small changes, on to other media, including the internet. The practical part of this thesis contains a qualitative analysis of in-depth interviews with parents who have children between the ages of 12 and 15. The goal of this analysis was to find out what parents think of the relationship between children and media, which strategies of parental mediation they are using, and which conditions and...

Opposition "homo - animal" in language. Contribution to the Czech linguistic picture of the world
Šťastná, Lucie ; Vaňková, Irena (advisor) ; Bozděchová, Ivana (referee)
This diploma thesis aims to contribute to the research of the Czech language picture of the world. It is based on fundamental theoretical and methodological resources of cognitive and cultural linguistics and focuses on the opposition of "man - animal", or "human - animal", in the Czech language, aiming to illustrate the way in which zooappellatives (animal names) relate to the reality of the human world. The most extensive part of the thesis is based mainly on an analysis of Czech dictionary material (etymological, reference, synonym and phraseological dictionaries), as well as comparing the scientific (biological) classification of animals to the categorization in natural language. In regard to the category ANIMAL, the thesis establishes four basic domains constituting the category's conceptual model (framework): "the place where the animal lives", "physical traits", "the animal's behaviour" and "relation to man". The thesis also includes questionnaire-based research that focuses on analysing the way in which speakers of the Czech language understand the category ANIMAL, and attempts to determine whether they regard some animals as more protypical than others.

Welfare of families with children
Šťastná, Lucie ; Štangová, Věra (advisor) ; Vysokajová, Margerita (referee)
Závěr Cílem této diplomové práce bylo přiblížit především současnou právní úpravu zabezpečení rodin s dětmi v České republice, přičemž hlavní pozornost byla věnována systému státní sociální podpory. Tento subsystém sociálního zabezpečení má z hlediska podpory rodiny největší význam, a proto jsem se jím zabývala nejvíce i v rámci výkladu o vývoji rodinných dávek. Rodina s dětmi je ovšem zabezpečována nejen dávkami státní sociální podpory, nýbrž i formou dalších dávek či služeb poskytovaných v rámci sociálního pojištění a sociální pomoci. Těmto oblastem jsem se však z důvodu jejich zaměření nejen na pomoc rodinám s nezaopatřenými dětmi věnovala v menším rozsahu, než jsem tomu učinila v případě státní sociální podpory. Pro účely srovnání jsem zvolila úpravu rodinných dávek ve Spolkové republice Německo a připomněla jsem též zabezpečení rodin s dětmi v mezinárodním kontextu. Jak již bylo zmíněno v úvodu, rodina s dětmi má pro společnost nepopiratelný význam. Výchova dětí však pro rodiny znamená zvýšené výdaje a zpravidla též omezení ekonomické aktivity a příjmu ze zaměstnání jednoho z rodičů, a to alespoň po určitou dobu. Z tohoto důvodu a za účelem zabránění vzniku příliš velké sociální nerovnosti mezi těmi, kteří nesou náklady na výchovou dětí a těmi, jež takové výdaje nemají, jsou ze strany státu poskytovány...
