Du placement familial à l'accueil de la parentalité : tensions et épreuves dans la re-distribution de la parentalité entre les acteurs

Abstract : Any child who was found, abandoned, or whose parents were unable to provide for his or her education, health, or morals, was previously taken care of in a substitute mode, by a religious institution or placed with a nanny/custodian. The bonds of filiation with the parents were then rarely maintained. However, the weakening of paternal authority in favour of joint parental authority has brought about a change in attitude: parents are now recognized as responsible and child protection professionals now favour parental substitution rather than a substitute form of care. The reception of the child in a third family involves a multitude of actors, each of them having to invest themselves and participate in the decisions concerning his/her life and education. And this situation raises tensions, even hardships between the people involved (social worker, parents, child, tutor, etc.). The current child protection system does not offer the child the possibility to grow up in coherence with the different parentalities proposed to him. By exclusively granting parental authority to the parents, the law does not allow the child to open up to other attachment figures and thus prevents the regulation of the various forms of parenthood. The practice of foster care then questions the stakes of coeducation and raises the child's difficulties in identifying the different forms of parenthood.
