Abstract

In times of social isolation, with schools closed, teachers, students and families were pressured to change work and organization routines. Digital platforms and online course management systems were adopted in schools as an alternative to suspending face-to-face activities, which was called emergency remote education. In the case of children and adolescents, a gap left by remote education has been filled by families, what I call parental mediation in teaching and learning. In this article, strategies and feelings of family members regarding this mediation are analyzed. The analyzes were made from family life narratives in a Facebook group, in Brazil. As a result, there are the main strategies adopted by families to monitor activities and homework - to be available during online classes, to seek additional content when necessary, to turn to teachers when in doubt, to consider personal preferences, to have study routines, reading and producing text together, being together to create the habit of studying and reinforcing affective bonds, investing in the well-being of children and adolescents in the moments of study. The results also show that the main feelings arising from this task were difficulties in exercising the role of a teacher, impatience, feeling of failure, stress, overload. A smaller portion (15.9%) feels fulfillment and happiness in helping children and adolescents with school activities. Reflections about the theme point to the need for solutions that can strengthen the relationship between schools, teachers, students and families.
