Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In modern times, the changes taking place in the field of gender differences and generations can strongly affect the category of parenthood, therefore the relationship of paternity and maternity. Urgency of pedagogical reflection called to shed light on the reasons underlying the anthropological revival of parenting. What meaning should we assign, from the pedagogical-educational point of view, to being parents today? Is it enough, to delineate oneself as such, to bring a child into the world and master intervention techniques / recipes or is it essential to be aware of becoming parents in the name of a precise choice of values? Fathers and mothers are not born but they become: access to fatherhood and motherhood is the result of learning. This, from a pedagogical point of view, calls into question the importance of educational processes activated by adults / educators, the ability of subjects interested in becoming fathers and mothers to wait for the definition of themselves, the need to clarify the couple's educational dynamics underlying the individual and conjugal formative process to parenthood.
