Philippe Aries Children

For the children, however, Bilac it used a simple language taking off the imagination of the child. As example the poem ' ' The Casa' ' , in which the poet values the family and the home as sacred. It sees as the birds have, underneath d? wing, the son implume, in the heat of the nest! You must love, child, your house! It loves the heat of the maternal affection! Inside of the house where you were born you are everything As everything is happy, in the end of the day, When returns of the lessons and the study! Return, when you returns, the joy! Here you must enter as in a temple, … the poetry of Bilac shows, through verses, the importance of the family and the love that the children must feel for its familiar ones. At the time, when the poet wrote this poetry, it had as function to teach civic and moral values to the children. The child was seen as ' ' adult in miniatura' ' , taking off its capacity to imagine.

In recent years, with the studies of the French historian Philippe Aries (1981), he was evidenced the historical and social nature of the child when articulating infancy, history and society, thus basing a contrary position to ' ' miniaturization of criana' '. Of this form, the valuation of infancy and the diffusion of the modern concept, accent character differentiated of it, in its dependence and fragility, what it assures the protection necessity. The idea of modern infancy was universalizada. Moreover, the school through the poetry, can prove its utility when if become the space child to reflect it on its personal condition. also, throughout this exactly century, grew the effort for the knowledge of infancy in some areas of the knowledge. Other modern poets and contemporaries had appeared, the infantile poetry conquered space and its readers.


This author points in them, through its studies, some feelings that had been constructed by infancy, throughout the times, since ‘ ‘ invisibilidade’ ‘ in the Average Age, until the feeling of concern, in the modern society. From this important study, other authors and authors if had dedicated to study and to problematizar the subject and today we have significant contributions to infancies, as much in studies in Brazil: Kuhlmann Jr & Fernandes, Redin and Didonet, Ana Cristina Thin Coll, as in other countries, to cite Francesco Tonucci (Italy), Catherine Toms, Young chicken & Manuel Sarmento (Portugal), among others and others. Kuhlmann Jr. and Fernandes (2004) says of the diversity of infancies, arguing that we cannot think the subject, disdaining the lived context, the society, the cultures. For these authors, the term must be used in the plural one, that is, infancies, since, according to them, this time that happens in the life of all and all, happens distinct, but it is thus, condition of all child. Of this form, the question of ‘ is problematizada; ‘ to have or not to have infncia’ ‘ , debated for some, where in this conception, child without infancy would not exist, but yes, diverse infancies, lived deeply in different spaces and cultures. According to Statute of the Child and Adolescent ECA (1990), child, citizen, therefore, of infancy, is the time that goes of the birth to the twelve incomplete years of age.
