The author addresses the theme of the analysis of family and social links as shown by the drawings of their own families made by children in the first three years or primary school in the public and private sector in the geographical area of Vallo della Lucania. Through the family projective tests: the Drawing of the Imaginary Family (DIF), the Design of the Kinetic Family (DKF), the Design of the Animal Family (DAF) and the Human Figure Test (DHF), it is, in fact, possible to identify the personal internalization of the child’s family experience. Bringing out the family roles and any discomfort that such roles convey, rein-forces the need to run parenthood services within the local welfare structure. The paper displays the drawings the author considers to be exemplary to support her sus-tained argument.
