Abstract: This qualitative research was conducted in order to understand how are the聽parenthood and marital relationships in child labor families as well as the role聽of child labor within the family organization. The samples taken considered聽four municipality of Duitama, department of Boyac谩, Colombian families with聽working children with ages between 7 and 17 belonging to lower and middle聽classes. The technique used was the social home consultation, conceptually聽considered as a social work intervention and research tool, which takes place in聽the house of the families under study. This technique gets technical pertinence聽because child labor families try to hide or deny this condition, and they do聽not have sense of awareness about their children working issue. Authorities to聽curb the problem force actions ranging from written reprimands to withdrawal聽of children in welfare institutions, according to the risk of child labor. This聽situation generates tension in the family towards professionals because those聽are seen as the ones who inspects or monitors. Thus, the close approach to聽their homes, provided to the completion of this investigation, since it allows a聽meeting with and for the family.
Translated abstract: Se realiz贸 una investigaci贸n cualitativa con el objetivo de comprender c贸mo聽son las relaciones de parentalidad y conyugalidad en familias en situaci贸n聽de trabajo infantil, as铆 como la funci贸n del trabajo infantil dentro de la聽organizaci贸n familiar. La muestra estuvo conformada por cuatro familias聽del municipio de Duitama, departamento de Boyac谩, Colombia, con hijos聽trabajadores entre 7 y 17 a帽os de edad. Se utiliz贸 la t茅cnica de consulta social聽en domicilio, considerada conceptualmente como herramienta de intervenci贸n聽e investigaci贸n propia del Trabajo Social, la cual se lleva a cabo en la casa de聽las familias en estudio. Esta t茅cnica es pertinente debido a que las familias en聽situaci贸n de trabajo infantil tratan de ocultar o negar su condici贸n, y no poseen聽una conciencia del problema. Las autoridades, a fin de frenar la problem谩tica,聽imponen medidas de coacci贸n que incluyen desde amonestaciones escritas聽hasta el retiro de los hijos por parte de instituciones de protecci贸n, seg煤n el聽riesgo del trabajo infantil desarrollado, situaci贸n que genera tensi贸n en la聽familia y hace que los profesionales encargados de regular estas situaciones,聽sean vistos como intrusos. De esta forma, la cercan铆a a su domicilio, facilit贸聽la realizaci贸n de la presente investigaci贸n, ya que posibilita un encuentro con聽y para la familia.
