The research is about representation of family implicit in the didactic material used by children from first to fourth grades of private schools in the center zone of Recife city. The sample was chosen at random. A hundred and eight didactical and paradidactic books were submitted to Documental Content Analysis. The results indicate that these materials privilege a traditional model of family. The feminine and masculine roles are considered as essential and natural; power relations are oriented by the supremacy of the masculine gender over the feminine one and occur vertically according to age. Men, women and children are presented in an “ideal” model, favoring the exclusion of all other possibilities of being a subject.
