The article covers the problem of the reconfiguration of parental roles and responsibilities, which has been at the centre of the contemporary cultural debate for years. Due to the cultural instances, fluidity, and complexity that characterise postmodern society as a whole, we are witnessing a period of redefinition in which the roles of family members are through a significant phase of transformation. These changes highlight special educational exigencies that are mostly linked to the changing parenting styles and the extraordinary educational needs of both children and parents. The pedagogical in-depth study focuses on the interpretative categories of the new forms of parenthood and of being a family, as well as the indicators of a renewal of the educational relationship. On the educational level, the focus is on the development of the parent's critical-reflexive capacities, which are required for a problematic engagement with the experience of parenthood.

Abstract

The article covers the problem of the reconfiguration of parental roles and responsibilities, which has been at the centre of the contemporary cultural debate for years. Due to the cultural instances, fluidity, and complexity that characterise postmodern society as a whole, we are witnessing a period of redefinition in which the roles of family members are through a significant phase of transformation. These changes highlight special educational exigencies that are mostly linked to the changing parenting styles and the extraordinary educational needs of both children and parents. The pedagogical in-depth study focuses on the interpretative categories of the new forms of parenthood and of being a family, as well as the indicators of a renewal of the educational relationship. On the educational level, the focus is on the development of the parent's critical-reflexive capacities, which are required for a problematic engagement with the experience of parenthood.
