Care practices and changes in parental tasks -The contemporary changes underway in family relationships involve also parental duties. This paper focuses in particular on those changes that seem to give mothers and fathers a new educational duty involving recognition and improvement of child individuality. The trans-missive task does not lose importance; rather, it is increasingly accompanied by efforts to support and help children to reveal themselves, thus involving parents in an arduous ‘balancing act’ between promoting autonomy and exerting authority. The data presented come from an investigation carried out on mothers and fathers from the Veneto region (North-east Italy). These transformations are examined through the lens of care practices, that is to say the set of activities and relationships through which parents continually convey the norms, values, affection that accompany a child’s growth. Key words: parenthood, caring, child identity, adult authority, family work division.
