[Autom. eng. transl.] How can parents of children in residential settings be helped? What role can educators taking care of their children play in this direction? The article, starting from the distinction between "assistance" and "repair", identifies two different approaches that can be traced back to the work of child protection workers. Starting from the critical aspects of a treatment centered on the experts, the author explains how a relational / social approach can instead allow to develop processes that really help parents to recover their abilities as much as possible - or at least not to lose - their abilities parenting. Some operational guidelines are also proposed to facilitate the involvement of the family (and others) and some «reparative» paths are indicated in a social perspective.
