The family that fulfils a paradigm defined “conjugal” or “nuclear” is a cultural construction resulting in the Enlightenment, the
bourgeois revolutions at the end of XVIII century and in the end of the Age historiographic ally called “Modern”. In the following
brief historical age, characterized by a particular Bürgergeist, the family formed the nucleus of society, along with a product and
a status of the system and its integrity, as well as a homologating pattern for education. The next epochal transitions began in the
second half of the twentieth century and raised the issue of new paradigms of couple and family, thus requiring a renewed aid as
essential to the Pedagogy as a social science and a profession. This paper bears witness to the contribution that pedagogy as a social
profession takes and must be called to make to the family problems of the difficult and interminable epochal transition.
