This research maintains autobiographical traits, considering that the researcher participated in a collective of mothers. The data obtained are analyzed based on theoretical references on: historical and cultural notions of childhood; the constitution of the family; childcare and early childhood education; maternity and the social constructions of the ways of being reported to the woman / mother today.
