The present article shows the results from a qualitative research and thesis of the authors carried out on single-parent families with female heads of household in the city of Chillán (Chile). The general objective was to know the perception of the mothers from single-parent families in the previously mentioned city, about parentification as a tool to maintain family balance. Semi-structured interviews were held with these female heads of household and key informants, which allowed an appreciation of role distribution within the household and also a greater understanding about how the parentification phenomenon can be a useful tool for each family system. The results showed how parentification follows the personal history of the household heads, as well as the environmental circumstances faced by the family or diseases of its members
